Throughout this live album, Cyrille Aimee holds the audience in the palm of her hand. Rapt during quiet moments, raucous as the spirited band swings into high gear, roaring with laughter at her charming and quirky banter, or singing along with a Michael Jackson medley, the crowd is an essential part of the buoyant show.

This recording kicks off Power Women of the Blues, Rory Block's latest series of recordings dedicated to blues pioneers. Bessie Smith was rightly called 'The Empress of the Blues' for her 160 classic recordings between 1923 and 1933. Block's unique acoustic blues interpretations of Bessie Smith's material remind us how the powerful songs stand the test of time. 

Heaven And Earth

Kamasi Washington's sophomore album not only fulfills its overarching ambition, but illustrates the dialectic between seen and unseen, real and imagined, citizen and culture, self and self, as well as self and other, and does so through the lens of a mature but never jaded revolutionary consciousness.
