Product Overview

Ace Blackman plays the Blues because it had been deeply ingrained into his soul, just like it was in the soul of Joe Makery his Bass Player.

Ace's great grandpa Jack, a tenant farmer in the Tidewater area, was brutally murdered in the presence Ace's grandpa, Johnny, who turned away from playing church music. He blamed God for not protecting his father. Johnny played the Blues, instead of spiritual music like his father had. A white agent was in the process of raping Johnny's wife, Mary, and Johnny caught him in the act. The rapist shot Johnny between the eyes and escaped.

The only child to survive Mary's derangement was Andrew, Ace's father. He contracted TB and his wife Courtney got it from him and died. Andrew went mad. Ace grew up in an orphanage.

Ace had learned to play the Blues from his sick father before Andrew died.

Author Info
William James
William James was the son of the theologian Henry James and the eldest of five children, including the novelist Henry James (Jr.) His family traveled frequently between the U.S. and Europe, a practice which William maintained throughout his life; the many friendships he cultivated oversees secured him an international reputation. After completing his liberal arts education, James was torn between a career as a painter or a scientist. He chose the latter, receiving an M.D. from Harvard in 1869, where he taught for 35 years in the departments of anatomy, physiology, philosophy, and psychology. Of his many accomplishments, James set up the first psychology laboratory in the U.S., helped organize the American Society for Psychical Research in 1884, and received numerous awards and honors. James's lifelong fascination with human nature and culture is evident in his work, which explores the ways in which the spheres of philosophy, science, and religion intersect. William James is considered one of the great American thinkers.
