Curtis Salgado Reveals Inspiration For 'The Beautiful Lowdown'

Curtis Salgado

(The Blues) Curtis Salgado combined his interest in history and music to create his latest album The Beautiful Lowdown, he's explained. The follow-up to Soul Shot includes forays into every sector of the R&B genre, and reflects his interest in the past along with his passion for the sounds.

Salgado tells KMUW: "This record is basically everything under the umbrella, including reggae. I love reggae, the whole history with mento, ska and bluebeat. I'm a history freak - I want to know what makes things tick. At the same time, the only way I know how to make a living is through music."

He began merging his two interests when he first heard Paul Butterfield covering Little Walter. "It led me to Little Walter - that just blew my mind," he recalls. "I never heard Paul Butterfield again." Read more here.
