It's the end of an era, as for over half a century, Etta James has all but defined the role of the quintessential rhythm & blues vocalist.
The album features her one-of-a-kind renditions of Otis Redding's “Cigarettes and Coffee” and Bobby “Blue” Bland's “Dreamer” to Ray Charles' “In the Evening” and Guns N' Roses' “Welcome to the Jungle.” Wait – Etta does Axl?? Amazing!
Throughout her career, James created a remarkably deep and diverse catalog of R&B, Blues, Soul, Pop and Jazz recordings. She crossed all musical genres and styles and has been cited as a major influence by a wide range of singers from Janis Joplin to Irma Thomas to Christina Aguilera and Adele.
Many have tried to copy or follow her style, but there is only one Etta James.
