Why Blues is blue

I was just listening to Dion‘s album “Bronx in Blue” when it occurred to me why Blues is called Blues: It’s because it is not Black and White.

Why then Blues is not Reds? Nonsense! But, why listen to a liar like me if you could as well listen to Dion? E.g. at NPR‘s World Cafe “Dion Rediscovers the Blues on ‘Bronx’“. Enjoy.
