LIVE (Stream): Misty Blues Band @ Universal Preservation Hall 02/12/2021

Gina Coleman and her band, Misty Blues, celebrated the release of their 10th CD, None More Blue. The album contains all originals, most were penned by Ms. Coleman, some with the help of her bandmates, Ed Moran, Seth Fleischman, Benny Kohn & Diego Mongue. All written during the pandemic. The concert actually consisted of two separate sets of music. The first was the CD release itself. The second was a tribute to Women in the Blues as represented by songs originally performed by Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton, Ruth Brown, and Koko Taylor. All giants in a male-dominated genre who were active from the 1920s on.

    Great photos Rudy, and thanks for doing the review. We have the new CD and it was so wonderful to see them perform the whole CD, even it was via a livestream.
