One of our finest blues singers died yesterday. Koko Taylor had an amazing voice. She stayed close to her home in Chicago, so she didn’t get the recognition that come with lots of road exposure. But I don’t know anyone who could belt out the blues like she did. (Ernestine better watch out!)
Via Hilzoy, here is a clip, apparently of recent vintage, when she was nearly 80 yrs. old.
