Matriarch of the Blues, as Etta James is
called many times, is an 2000 album marking her return to the blues,
after recording country, jazz, and pop songs. The album reached a peak
position of number two on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart, and was
nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 44th Grammy Awards. Matriarch of the Blues includes
earthy renditions of Bob Dylan's “Gotta Serve Somebody,” Al Green's
“Rhymes,” Otis Redding's “Try a Little Tenderness,”, Ray Charles' “Come
Back Baby” and Rolling Stones' “Miss You.” It's pure magic, with her
incredible vocal range and impressive blues versions of these classics.
She reclaims her throne and does this with the best she has to offer.
