Danny Kalb, Guitarist Who Gave Blues-Rock an Edge, Dies at 80

His 1960s band, the Blues Project, won a following with a driving, experimental approach to traditional material that was anything but purist.

New York Blues Guitar Stalwart Was 80

Kalb lent his vocals to the blues songs, and his groups were respected by musicians on the scene for their penchant to experiment with new forms.

Danny Kalb, Lead Guitarist of NYC’s Influential Blues Project, Dies at 80

Along with Michael Bloomfield of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Kalb emerged as an early American guitar hero as the hybrid genre of blues-rock came into its own in the mid-’60s. His lead lines, whether high-velocity and stinging or slow and measured, were never less than dazzling, and always packed with emotion; he never sacrificed tastefulness for flash. He learned his craft from the master bluesmen of the era and applied it to the new breed of blues music that was infiltrating rock on both sides of the Atlantic. His work was highly influential, and he was admired by many guitar slingers who rose to greater prominence in his wake.

"Dylan crashed with me for a few weeks in Madison on his way from Hibbing, Minn., to New York," Kalb told AM New York in 2013. "We had so much fun, I dropped out and followed him."

Kalb subsequently met Dave Van Ronk, an influential figure in the Greenwich Village folk music scene. The guitarist quickly became a mainstay of the scene himself, performing and recording with the likes of Dylan, Judy Collins and Phil Ochs.

Two big losses... RIP Greg Bear, whose "Blood Music" showed me a whole other way of thinking. And Danny Kalb, who was always so kind to a 15-year-old trying to figure out how he did such amazing things with just six strings.

The legendary Danny Kalb has boarded The Mystery Train at 80 after a long illness. If you have ever heard his electric work with The Blues Project, you are aware that he was one of the finest guitar virtuosos who ever lived. His astounding, soul drenched revelatory riffs on "Two Trains Running" featured on the LP "Projections" is the stuff of legend. The legacy of Danny Kalb is an important and immortal one. Sleep Well Danny.

His passing marks one more loss in our shared musical history, especially for those of us who came up in the Greenwich Village scene of the late '50s and '60s. Danny was certainly an integral part of that, and our friendship is something for which I'll always be grateful.
