100 Years Of Blues is front-porch, down-home music with Bishop and Musselwhite trading licks and vocals on 12 rootsy, spirited, humorous songs, mixing nine originals with three reimagined classics.
“Harmonica virtuoso Musselwhite raises the level of emotional expression on his instrument beyond even the masters he learned from…the grizzled veteran richly decorates his music with telling nuance and chiseled detail.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“Legendary is an overused term, but it’s also the only word that suits this heavyweight blues harpist.” – Time Out New York
“Charlie Musselwhite continues to astonish. Musselwhite achieves an authoritative deep blues sound through spare understatement as only a master can.” – Off Beat Magazine
“His delivery is as thick as molasses and as warm and rich as freshly ploughed soil on a Mississippi morning. He draws from a deep pool of emotion, brings it to life when he plays, and invites us to jump on in.” – BluesWax
“Musselwhite continues to create trailblazing music while remaining firmly rooted in the blues. His worldly-wise vocals, rich, melodic harmonica playing and deep country blues guitar work flawlessly accompany his often autobiographical and always memorable original songs.” – AllAboutJazz.com
“Whether you see him live or listen to him on record, one thing is evident. In a day when so many musicians play blues from a narrow perspective, the risky musical outlook of Charlie Musselwhite always broadens the musical scope.” – Art Tipaldi, Blues Music Magazine
