The Covid-19 Blues ... The Story of US
Blues Legend BB King
By JV Howard

Although instrumental accompaniment is almost universal in the blues, the blues is essentially a  vocal form. Blues songs are lyrical rather than narrative; blues singers are expressing feelings rather than telling stories.

The emotion expressed is generally one of sadness or melancholy, often due to problems in love. The COVID-19 blues could be serenaded into problems feeling about life during a pandemic.
 
Yet nothing speaks to the story of us - in some ways - than the silence of clubs and musicians in the city of New Orleans. It’s said NO has never been so quiet especially with the passing of notable jazz pioneer Ellis Marsalis, to Covid. Taken Covid-19 fallout and NO silence with no carnival together one could sense with immense sentiments the reverberation of BB King’s “the thrill is gone.


  
It’ been a long year.
