Techniques on show, which include a collection of snorts, quick-breaths and tongue pops may impress professional woodwind players -- as they should -- but the sense of story telling obvious in other tunes is missing.

 African Americans - Music - "The Blues" with Musicians and singers such as W. C. Handy, Jelly Roll Mortan, Mamie Smith, Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, and Bessie Smith
African influences are apparent in the blues tonality; the call and response pattern of the repeated refrain structure of the blues stanza; the falsetto break in the vocal style; and the imitation of vocal idioms by instruments, especially the guitar and harmonica.
To express this musically, blues performers use vocal techniques such as melisma and syncopation and instrumental techniques such as "choking" or bending guitar strings on the neck or applying a metal slide or bottleneck to the guitar strings to create a whining, voice-like sound.
Blues derived from and was largely played by southern black men, most of whom came from the milieu of agricultural workers.
