Jazz and Blues Lyrics of the Month
Her material is the ordinary stuff of which the blues are made - bad relationships with two-timing men - but the subject matter does not receive the usual treatment! Viola is not pining away or begging the man to come back. Instead, she tells her unfaithful men where to go, and advises other women to do the same. Some of the lyrics from this CD are featured in this month's lyrics, listed above.
Also of note in this collection is a fine rendition of West Indies Blues, with its beautiful harmonica accompaniment by an unknown artist.

Video of the MonthPlease refer to our collection of video reviews.
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona and Arkansas, for the beginning of our series about baby names derived from states. Bigmama's, written and illustrated by Donald Crews, author of two Caldecott Honor books. This children's picture book is an autobiographical portrayal of summers spent with grandparents in the rural South in the early-middle part of the 20th Century. The lush water colors and the details provided as the children explore Bigmama's home, making sure that nothing has changed, evoke the excitement, warmth and love of the author's experience. The critical test of the success of a children's book is how well children like it; both of my children loved this book.
