This is a look at some bluesy-jazzy wimmin singers and musicians who rock my world, musical foremothers whose voices echo as strongly today as they did decades ago. Crooners, shouters, songwriters and bandleaders, sirens and songbirds of years gone by... Let's get hep!
Margaret Young/Jane Green "Margaret Young And Jane Green" (MC Productions, 2011)
About a dozen bluesy songs each from these two 1920's performers -- Margaret Young is the more rugged of the two, with kind of a Bessie Smith-like delivery. Green is a little more genteel, but I prefer her voice -- great material, although with the rough, antique sound quality of rare old songs that have just barely been rescued from the ages. Recommended!
