Old Blues. Followers. It’s a painting belonging to the series “Jazz and Blues” by Roman Nogin.
The orchestra that plays. The fast pace. The black voice of the singer. Everything comes out of the picture and lives again in the spectator’s eyes. Here Nogin’s ability is very pronounced. The colors that pile up and create a play of lights that highlights the action of the various characters. The empty tables that let us understand how people go wild dancing this rhythm, the progenitor of pop. Show. The blues and its characteristic characters. The roots of the blues are to be found among the songs of the African American slave communities in the plantations of the southern states of the United States of America (the so-called Cotton Belt). Starting from these humble origins, the blues grew to become the most recorded form of popular music in the world, ending up strongly influencing, or even giving birth to, many of the styles of modern popular music and becoming, starting from the 1960s, one of the dominant influencing factors in pop music.
