    I feel music is something without color creed or religion. The song doesn’t tell us anything, but does reveal that blues is black in origin, or so the artist alludes. Not that white people can’t feel blue, so within reason curtis was neither white or black. Just blue and enjoyed playing it his entire life, while other enjoyed listing with him.

  2. Music does tend to have culture, but I think that is from the environment more or less, what would happen if you where put on the planet with no reference to any of the historical influences and given an instrument would you naturally gravitate into, blues, jazz or any other “style” for lack of better words, or maybe you would create something never heard because you have nothing as a reference.

  3. So to further that thought, I just re-listened to the song, and I actually pictured two very different people or scenes, the images where created by my personal experiences, the story it’s self for me just paints the story or life of a street performer, the first image I had was of the last street performer I saw which happened to be a white man playing some pretty amazing blues guitar, and the next one that came to mind was actually from a duo that has a pretty familiar story which if you have never heard of is worth looking into – “The story of Satan and Adam”, so in short I guess my point if I had one would be that music opens the doors and your experiences or environments paint the pictures.

      Yes, seen on Netflix excellent story, one man band. It was cool to see Adam join in once he was able to establish a relationship with “Satan” the street performer a warrior without a cause showing his skills and talents to any and all willing to stop stand and listen. +1
