“Jazz Blues….Blues jazz, really. - Blues jazz festival. The Isle of Lucy jazz and blues festival.” - This is Spinal Tap
In the early to mid 1960s, a number of people rediscovered and located the original folk and bluesmen of the South and resurrected their careers by presenting them to white rock and roll audiences in the late 60s and 70s. San Francisco Promoter Bill Graham in particular liked to mix up bills and expose “the kids” to other types of music, from country blues to Latin jazz and everything in between.
