The Devil’s Music: The Life and Blues of Bessie Smith
$36.50, $69.50, $99
Suggestive and racy, blues singer Bessie Smith was the definition of a "Red Hot Mamma" and the most successful entertainer of her time. On the eve of her tragic death in 1937, Bessie takes center stage in a Memphis "buffet flat." Now, among friends, she tells the story of her amazing life, career, her loves and losses. Audiences soak up the blues as Bessie Smith comes to life and sings the songs that made her so unforgettable, "St. Louis Blues," "Need a Little Sugar in my Bowl" and "Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out."
