Many great blues artists have come from the Texas area but, arguably, none so adorable as Ms. Bonnie Lee. With a career that has spanned more than fifty years, Lee stirs the mixture of jazz sophistication, deep rooted blues feeling and southern charm to come with a style that’s all her own.
Sweetheart of the Blues can be looked at as a celebration of friendship. Bonnie Lee has spread her warm sensitivity around Chicago making lasting connections that can be heard here. These bonds are one of the highlights of the album. It is an aggregation of companions congealed by the music.
