Blues Hall of Famer and five-time Grammy-nominee Bettye LaVette returns with a new album, Blackbirds, produced by Steve Jordan. It features songs primarily popularized by peers, other iconic women in music who she respects and admires. The album 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," and more, all in LaVette's rich and raspy tone with a touch of the blues.
