“I Feel So Good:  The Life & Times of Big Bill Broonzy”

“Um, Clapton? Sounds better than Clapton, though.”

–Musician guessing the identity of the guitar player in a YouTube clip featuring legendary bluesman Big Bill Broonzy.

Looking for a superb Father’s Day gift for the dad/husband/son/brother into blues music?  (or not — the book’s a great read regardless).

Check out “I Feel So Good:  The Life and Times of Big Bill Broonzy,” by Bob Riesman.

Now racking up plaudits from publications ranging from The Wall Street Journal to Boston.com, the book is a fascinating account of one of the towering — if overlooked — figures in American Blues.

Overlooked until now, that is.

P.S.:  The author, Bob Riesman, is not just a terrific and insightful writer — he also happens to be my brother-in-law. 

Way to go, Bob!
