Don’t mean to be your t.v. guide this evening (how boring), but this is a night for soul sisters in blues. It’s speaking to me. Awesome. First Alicia Keys, and now the astounding Annie Lennox.
I remember how popular Annie Lennox was, back in the days. But, I never realized how much more beyond alt-pop she went. Her program this evening on Great Performances’ “Annie Lennox: Nostalgia Live In Concert” (PBS/Channel 2, or your local US station, if available and programmed) has, so far, included those kindof smoky, dreamy, and also bluesy classics, like “Georgia On My Mind” (yeah; had to belt out my squeaky voice along with that one — and, G-d, that felt great), “Summertime”, and “I Put A Spell On You” (oh, yeah…). Hope you’re watching it.
