Joanna Connor:
To understand what sets Joanna Connor apart from most of her fellow musicians on Chicago's blues scene, you only need to consider the last verse of "Nothin' But the Blues," a song on Connor's CD, "Slidetime." "I'm a woman, born in '62," Connor sings smoothly in her sassy alto, "had to sing about what I know and make it all true." Rather than work variations on established blues traditions, Connor shapes the music to fit her perspective as a woman who came of...more.
