Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues – A Musical Journey – Box Set


Já que eu comentei sobre a série de filmes, nada mais justo que faça o mesmo com esse Box Set lançado pelo diretor norteamericano em 2003, complementando seu projeto sobre as raízes da música de seu país. Esses cinco discos são sem dúvida uma ótima compilação, uma generosa introdução às gravações, estilos e fases do gênero, em ordem cronológica, desde seu início até o blues tocado atualmente. As primeiras divas, os primeiros compositores, guitarristas slide do Delta, pianistas, jazzistas, poetas, o blues acústico e sua conseqüente eletrificação, suas raízes africanas, gênios da guitarra e alguns nomes recentes, está tudo lá. Logicamente também encontramos ausências terríveis. Todo o amante do blues encontrará algum ídolo esquecido, mesmo porque isso depende do gosto de cada um, e este trabalho está baseado no gosto pessoal de Scorsese e no material contido nos filmes produzidos pelo mesmo. Pode-se notar facilmente que muitos dos temas escolhidos foram regravados por bandas de rock´n roll dos sessenta – e vemos isso claramente nos discos 4 e 5 – e suas razões são óbvias, tendo em conta que Scorsese chegou ao blues através delas – como toda a sua geração. Enfim, na opinião desse que os escreve, o simples fato de um dos grandes diretores de cinema da história criar algo que, na pior das hipóteses, serve para projetar o blues a escala mundial e inspirar novos músicos, já é válido. E com esse blog tento fazer minha pequena contribuição para manter o blues vivo. Aqui estão os cinco discos, deleitem-se:
