Dan Gould Posted June 27, 2009 Report Share Posted June 27, 2009 Happily Seduced by the Blues By LARRY ROHTER Published: June 23, 2009 Chicago BOB KOESTER came here in 1958 because he was a jazz and blues fan who wanted to see his favorite music played live in the small, smoky clubs that dotted the city. But he has ended up doing much more than that: as the founder and sole proprietor of Delmark Records he also became and remains the most dedicated chronicler of that scene, now gradually receding into history. “I was seduced by the music,” Mr. Koester said in an interview last month. “You can’t record everything you like, and I missed a lot of good sessions because I didn’t have the money. But there was so much going on. I liked the music, I liked the label, and I did as much as I could afford to do.” More here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
