Symphonic Blues Recordings

“Just as with Chamber Blues, the Symphonic Blues compositions explore various juxtapositions (not a blend) of classical and blues. While Siegel-Schwall (head-over-heals in love with the blues) was in residency with the masters, like Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Willie Dixon, in the iconic blues clubs of the 1960’s, I was also mentored at the same time by Maestro Seiji Ozawa and composer William Russo. My heart was suffused with classical music. In 1968 we all performed together with the Chicago Symphony in the very first ‘symphonic blues’ experience. I wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that these two huge selling DG recordings and what has been given to me is a magic carpet ride.” – Corky Siegel

The Book - By Corky Siegel and Peter Krammer

 

“They say 'Play from the heart, more expressive, more musical!'  Guidance like this (and there is a lot of it) tells us where we want to be, but does it show us how to get there?” – Corky Siegel

“Corky Siegel’s methods for finding dynamic expression inside yourself will forever change the way your band, chorus, or orchestra approaches music. It is that profound a tool …”   –  David Roche, Ph. D. Arts Education – Chicago Public Schools
