Fans in the Puget Sound area have had the opportunity to hear and enjoy the music of Bill Engelhart of “Little Bill and the Blue Notes” for more than 50 years and already appreciate what an amazing contribution the man has made to the Pacific Northwest music scene. During his long (and still busy) career, Bill has garnered countless awards, including recognition by the Experience Music Project, as a Northwest music pioneer. With more than 12 albums to his credit, Bill has also given us many wonderful original songs, beginning with his national hit, “I Love An Angel,” and continuing through decades of blues compositions. He has also been a role model and mentor for countless musicians in the Pacific Northwest. One of these - blues trombonist, former “Blue Note,” and close personal friend, Randy Oxford - decided that the time was right to put together a tribute to Little Bill and his music.
With Bill’s enthusiastic consent, Randy gathered the resources necessary to create a CD of Little Bill originals, featuring a stellar line-up of musicians, each creating his/her own interpretation of a Little Bill composition. The music is as varied as musicians, who include many of Bill's associates and friends old and new, as well as long-time admirers eager to pay tribute. Big Blues for Little Bill: A Tribute to the Music of Little Bill Engelhart consists of 15 songs, recorded by 62 musicians, including Duffy Bishop, Chris Carlson, Henry Cooper, Merrilee Rush, Patti Allen, Randy Oxford, Alice Stuart, Paul
Green, Billy Stapleton, Dick Powell, Mark Whitman, Mark Riley, Dick Powell, Polly O'Keary, Leanne Trevayan, Billy Stoops, Rod Cook, and many more. It's the Blues, people, although some of the songs rock and others swing, shuffle or glide. Together they present a glimpse into the life of the consumate working musician. It's a tribute to Little Bill that this project has resulted so many beautiful performances.
