Day: July 4, 2011

The great thing about a Ruthie Foster song is that you never quite know where it’s going to go. It might start as a quiet ballad before morphing into an up-tempo song built on a New Orleans-style rhythm, as on “Woke Up This Mornin’,” from her first live album, Live At Antone’s.In this performance recorded at Austin’s famed blues club Antone’s, opening number “Stone Love,” an original composition, exemplifies her standing in the blues world: the soulful, 1960s-inspired number is nothing fancy – just Foster getting the chance show that she’s not a “blues singer,” but rather a singer, period, capable of zeroing in on the heart of a song regardless of genre.The highlight of both the CD and the DVD is Foster’s original “Runaway Soul,” from her 2002 album of the same name.
