In Watersnake Blues, Linda's poetry, joined by jazz, blues, Native American and world music, magic trances the listener on a hypnotic journey through blues landscapes both ancient and modern. In her 'Rattlesnake Blues' and 'Watersnake Blues' cuts, humor, sensuality and totemic symbols combine to blow the blues wide open. 'Black Ice', 'Plastic Tablecloth Blues', and 'Road Kill' rocket the blues right into the 21st century. And 'Joy in the Morning' and 'Sideways Rain Blues' lay out a defiant, uplifting, and inspirational take on the earthy world of the blues. This CD comes packaged in a FREE Watersnake Blues Booklet. Linda's uniquely expressive delivery floats over the smokey and sensual music making Watersnake Blues a album that is built up from the ground and goes the distance for your repeated listening pleasure.
