I found this incendiary Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa collaboration on YouTube recently.
This blistering live performance was luckily captured on DVD and CD. I was so impressed I ran out and bought a copy of Live in Amsterdam for the library – a performance this good needs to be shared. Beth can really sing the blues and for the 9.44 minutes of this performance I believe every word she sings. Raw talent, life experience and artistry come together in a scorching and passionate performance. Joe Bonamassa’s sizzling guitar playing adds to the emotional power. You can compare this performance to Etta James’s wonderful original recording as the library also has the CD, Etta James; her best. Both women can really sing the blues.
In a fabulous stroke of luck, Beth Hart will be performing at this year’s West Coast Blues ‘n Roots Festival. I aim to be in the front row!
