The first major blues and jazz singer on record and one of the most powerful of all time, Bessie Smith rightly earned the title of "The Empress of the Blues." Even on her first records in 1923, her passionate voice overcame the primitive recording quality of the day and still communicates easily to today's listeners (which is not true of any other singer from that early period). At a time when the blues were in and most vocalists (particularly vaudevillians) were being dubbed "blues singers," Bessie Smith simply had no competition.

Vegetarians beware: Los Angeles meat masticators The Bombastic Meatbats are back with another platter of instrumental jazz-rock, funk and fusion. The twelve-track More Meat (recorded in early 2009 and left to marinate until now) follows last year’s Meatbats debut, Meet the Meatbats, and carries on the quartet’s mission to emulate seventies fusion: think Jeff Beck circa 1976, Return to Forever or The Tony Williams Lifetime.While the cartoonish cover art, the exaggerated name and titles like “Mountain of Meat” and “Lobster Legs” might give the feeling of a joke too many, these guys are serious students of classic jazz fusion who have a solid sense of humor. The group is led by drummer Chad Smith (The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot) with ample assistance from guitarist Jeff Kollman (who has a long list of session credits, over a dozen solo ventures and numerous film/TV projects), keyboardist Ed Roth (an arranger and sideman who heads Ed Roth’s Funktone Express) and bassist Kevin Chown (who has performed with other California artists and released solo work).
