Solomon Burke wowed the Blues Stage crowd with his larger-than-life voice and presence, and more than lived up to his billing as "The Bishop of Soul".
Chuck Prophet choked his guitar, and sang with his whole body. Potent, American writing and playing, backed by Stephanie Finch and the whole kick-ass band.
Derek Trucks was a challenge to photograph. All his energy and focus goes into the music. He barely moves any part of his body that's not essential to pulling music out of his guitar. His expression rarely, and only slightly, changes. But the music moves melifolously and expressively, encompassing a world of musical and spiritual influences.
