Bessie Smith was not the first to record a blues yet she stands astride the genre like a colossus. As well as her fame as an entertainer, she was a formidable human being. She refused to countenance opposition - incredibly, one night in 1927, she faced down the Ku Klux Klan. This combination was released as Bessie's first disc. All her skills are on display. I am so glad I added this album to my collection of the ladies of jazz from the 1930's and 1940's.
