Back Door Memories

Tom Mazzolini speaks proudly of his San Francisco Blues Festival. But each musician is proud for a different reason.

But Mazzolini seems satisfied with the way things are. "For me, the quest for the Holy Grail was to reach as many people, educate as many people as possible about what blues music is all about. That was the goal, the motivational force. Then one day I realized it got there. Now it's about trying to keep something. It's about mythology. Every time I drive by the Great Meadow I think of the moments. There is a history there."
