Diane Blue’s debut album on Regina Royale Records features blues royalty: The masterful blues guitarist, Ronnie Earl, and Boston’s Queen of the Blues, Ms. Toni Lynn Washington singing along with Ms. Blue on a few tracks. Ms. Blue performs vocals and harmonica in this soulful collection of original and cover tunes, paying homage to Nina Simone, Koko Taylor, Dinah Washington, and Aretha Franklin. Her ensemble includes drummer Lorne Entress and pianist/Hammond B3 organist Dave Limina (both of Ronnie Earl’s “Broadcasters”), along with Boston’s Bobby Gus on guitar, Johnny “Blue Horn” Moriconi on trumpet. Scott Shetler does double duty on saxophone and horn arrangements.
