Black Rabbit - Blues & Rock for everyone...


Ana & Milton Popovic - Blue Room

My dad Milton is the reason I’m into music. It was his impressive blues and soul collection and nightly jam sessions in our modest apartment on the 11th floor in New-Belgrade, Serbia that kept me awake at night and drawn to this great form of American art. 

It was on my to-do list for quite some time to record with Milton. I wanted to record the songs we use to play together while I was still living at home. As a memory of my youth days but also to give people, who are into my music, an idea of how and where things started. 

It took ten years to convince him to record an album together. At last I got him to the studio with an argument he could not reject: ‘Just do it for your grandchildren.’ He did. With producer Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana) Dave Smith (bass) and Steve Potts (Drums - Gregg Allman band). We started recording songs we really love. Roots blues and great songwriters. 

This album might be the most personal record I’ve done. It gives the audience a peek into my living room. The little secluded part of the apartment, stacked with amps, guitars and music magazines we used to call: “Blue Room“. We invite the listeners to our «Blue Room» for a private father - daughter jam session!
