CHAMBER BLUES CDs ”In most of these compositions, the seemingly apposing forces of classical and blues are placed side by side. Their brilliant contrasting musical personalities are cherished and maintained, producing joyful sparks. Watching them work so well together gives me hope for the world.” – Corky Siegel
SYMPHONIC BLUES CDs "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 recording projects with Seiji Ozawa and the Sanfrancisco Symphony are historic." Note: - Corky Siegel (Please choose "Street Music, 3 Pieces" - both historic works on one CD)
SIEGEL-SCHWALL CDs. "From 1965 through 2005" Siegel-Schwall recorded for Vanguard, RCA, Alligator, & Deutsche Grammophon. There are three distinct periods. The early recordings show innocence, young energy and learning. The mid recordings are the best songs and arrangements of original material that we composed and performed during our hey-day. The later recordings of 1987 and 2005 was when Siegel-Schwall became more of a blues band with the addition of the blues master and Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Sam Lay." (Reunion Concert is the best representation of Siegel-Schwall from 1987 onward and the Flash Forward CD is a studio recording when I talked Sam into writing a bunch of new songs - Corky Siegel (MORE SIEGEL-SCHWALL BELOW AND INDIVIDUAL DOWNLOADS)
