Wikipedia : This day (July 30, 1948), in Chicago, Illinois, is born Otis Taylor, an American blues musician and singer.

Otis Taylor : While his music, an amalgamation of roots styles in their rawest form, discusses heavyweight issues like murder, homelessness, tyranny, and injustice, his personal style is lighthearted. I’m good at dark, but I’m not a particularly unhappy person, he says.

@allmusic : Bluesman Taylor never skirted tough subject matter in a career that took him from the Folklore Center in Denver to a brief stay in London, England, to retirement from music in 1977, to being a successful antiques broker and, since 1995, back again to the blues.

@last.fm : His music is uncompromising and fierce, and it walks the line of gritty and gorgeous well. He incorporates elements of the blues masters Johnson, Jefferson, McTell and others, but always makes the resulting music his own.
