Blues guitarist and historian

Jealous of the Moon

In 1995, Tom Chapin and I co-produced this, my first solo CD.  It includes passionate interpretations of three Robert Johnson tunes, Stones in My Passway, Come On In My Kitchen, and Travelin' Riverside Blues. The recordings here have deep musical and personal connections to the ancestral traditions of the blues. And while music is the coin of this realm, were it money, the value I place on my apprenticeship in this tradition could never be paid.   Additional songs include: Hard Times, Come Again No More, Date for Church and my original, Jealous Of The Moon. I am accompanied on select cuts by acoustic bass, piano, tenor sax and harmonica.

"These tracks are not just astute: some are simply gorgeous. Ainslie's cover of Van Morrison's 'Crazy Love', for instance, or Robert Johnson's 'Come On In My Kitchen'. And 'Jealous Of The Moon' is a heartfelt love song. Ainslie's voice has never sounded more earthy and emotionally wealthy. Ending with Stephen Foster's 'Hard Times Come Again No More' was a stroke of genius. This album is a prize." [Arden Kelsey, The Spectator ]
