Janiva Magness: Blues Breaker

Last year Janiva Magness gave us her Grammy nominated album LOVE WINS AGAIN.  And she had already won the highly prestigious BB King Entertainer of the Year Award a couple years ago. This year she looks forward by looking back, with a six song set of classic blues, made famous by Bo Diddley, Al Kooper, Nina Simone, and Freddie King. With guest appearances by Kid Ramos, T.J. Norton, and Sugaray Rayford.  Why blues from the canon?  Why now?  She’s one of the top blues vocalists of her generation.  She doesn’t have to prove anything.  And here’s the proof!  BLUES AGAIN is the name of her release.  And here she is, with Kid Ramos on smoking guitar, on a Bo Diddley song.  “I Can Tell.’
