In his ever-fascinating book, Dr. Mark Winborn goes where few authors on the blues have ever gone: into the profoundly psychological implications of the genre. A Jungian by training, Winborn argues convincingly how the blues communicates for reasons that extend to the symbolic language of the unconscious. His results are sure to inspire future research in not just the blues but in other areas of traditional culture and the creative act. —Dr. William L. Ellis, Saint Michael’s College, Colchester, Vermont, Ethnomusicologist - Musician - Music Critic
Just like a fine bluesman, Winborn ‘riffs’ on the various psychological aspects of his topic: the genesis of the sound, the unitary reality created in playing and listening to the blues, its archetypal manifestations and healing potential, and the influence of the personality of performer and performance. As he states, ‘the blues belongs among the great arts because of its extraordinary capacity to embrace, embody, and transcend the opposites, especially as they become manifest in the experience of tragedy and suffering.’ Using original lyrics throughout, Winborn invites us to reimagine the power of the blues in its ability to deepen our own soulfulness. —August J. Cwik, Psy.D., Jungian Analyst & Musician

When you have a moment I invite you to stop over at The Literary Afficionado to read the review of Deep Blues by novelist Malcom Campbell.

Deep Blues is now officially available! Deep Blues, a psychological interpretation of the blues genre, began shipping today from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Fisher King Press. It is also available at lulu.com as an Adobe Digital Editions e-book. The Kindle-Nook edition is forthcoming. Thanks.

Hi Mark. Big congrats on the upcoming book. I know several people here in the community have expressed interest via the Forum already--it seems to be a very unique and fascinating topic. Best of luck with it!
