Vermillion, 2009, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Mia tells it like it is, singing the blues like she means it. Guitarist Orville Johnson shadows her on guitar leading a band that has a country blues feel. Vermillion mixes a couple of originals with blues classics like Lil Green’s “In The Dark” and Mary Lou Williams’ “Walkin'”. She is the classic blues singer shouting, moaning and delivering sobering doses of reality. The combination of Mia with Johnson and the rest of the band is a blues connection that is greater than the sum of it’s parts. Crack open a bottle of beer, sit back and enjoy it.
