Betty LaVette - Blackbirds - CD
Blues Hall of Famer and five-time Grammy-nominee Bettye LaVette returns with a new album, `Blackbirds,' produced by Steve Jordan.
Features songs primarily popularized by peers-other iconic women in music-who she respected and admired. It finds her in top form delivering powerful renditions of songs that touched her personally. Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit", Nina Simone's "I Hold No Grudge" & more, all in LaVette's rich and raspy tone with a touch of the blues.
