- Betty LaVette with Walter Wolfman Washington
- @Dimitriou’s Jazzy Alley
- May 12-15 at 7:30 PM
Bettye LaVette, the inimitable and legendary R&B songstress released her album, Worthy (2/27/15), and on a new label — Cherry Red. Worthy (a 2015 Grammy-nominated release for “Best Blues Album”) reunites her with GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter and producer Joe Henry, this time with both of them co-producing. On Worthy, Bettye revisits Dylan with the opening track “Unbelievable,” with a funky urgency introduced into the song, not present in the original. On “When I Was a Young Girl,” she slides effortlessly into a slinky groove, which Chris Youlden of Savoy Brown probably never imagined. “Bless Us All” is as relevant now as when Mickey Newbury wrote it decades ago, while her rendition of Joe Henry’s own “Stop” is jazzy, soulful and reminds one not to dare try to stop her.
