Trudy Lynn - I'll Sing the Blues for You (2016)

 

Trudy Lynn

I’ll Sing The Blues For You

 Conner Ray Music


Blues music at its finest is wonderful stories delivered with an emotionally-charged singing voice.  Based on those criteria this new release from Houston’s Trudy Lynn completely fills the bill.  I’ll Sing The Blues….. is destined to be as highly regarded as her 2014 Royal Oaks Blues Café (reaching #1 on Billboard Blues Chart), also on this label. 

  

Big Mama Thornton’s Alright Baby begins this 10 song set, with Steve Krase providing the superb harmonica intro, then fills here and throughout the CD.  Lynn has the perfect blues voice - smooth and subtle on ballads like Black Night by Lowell Fulsom, and Memphis Minnie’s World Of Trouble, then rough and gravelly like Koko Taylor on dance tunes such as Honky Tonk Song, and Rambling Blues.  In her original tune Lynn tells her man that she’s Thru Chasin You, I’m replacing you!    

 

The Latin-beat inflected Still My Little Angel Child is another very danceable number as is the bouncy If Its News To You.  Johnny Clyde Copeland’s classic Down On Bended Knee closes a most enjoyable disc for both home and on road trips. Available at www.connorraymusic.com
