Marcia Ball is one of the best-known artists to come out of the fertile Louisiana-Texas delta that spawned such greats as Janis Joplin and Lonnie Brooks. Her Boogie-Woogie piano playing draws from Swamp Rock and Zydeco to achieve a unique flavor, while her songwriting always returns to the blues. Authentically southern and unforced, these tracks illustrate Ball's great feel for both slow blues and Boogie-Woogie. Her smoky, intriguing vocals do justice to every tune, while the piano swings mischievously behind her. A southern artist to her core, Ball draws on the best music of her region to impressive effect.
