Many know him as the grumpy but charismatic Dr. Housestar of the famous television series of the same name: but Hugh LaurieIn addition to being an acclaimed actor, he is also a talented pianist and a sincere fan of the blues in all its forms. Hugh Laurie will be the 17 July in Milan at the Auditorium.
After the great success of his debut album 'Let Them Talk"2011', in which he paid homage to and revisited songs from the classic New Orleans blues repertoire, Hugh Laurie released in 2013 his second album 'Didn't It Rain"released by Warner Music Entertainment.
"Didn't It Rain" sees Hugh Laurie follow the trajectory of blues music back to the heartland of America. The disc includes songs dating back to early pioneers of the genre such as W.C. Handy ('St Louis. Blues') and Jelly Roll Morton ('I Hate A Man Like You'), through to more recent artists such as Dr. John ('Wild Honey') and Alan Price of The Animals ('Changes').
Produced by Joe Henry and recorded at Ocean Way Studio in Los Angeles, 'Didn't It Rain' is enhanced by the talents of the musicians who accompanied Hugh Laurie, The Copper Bottom Band. The album also features many guest vocal performances, including Guatemalan singer Gaby Moreno and soul singer Jean McClain. The album is also graced by the presence of a very special name, that of historic Grammy award-winning bluesman Taj Mahal, who lends his voice to a new version of Little Brother Montgomery's 'Vicksburg Blues'.
