Blues Piano Day 4 - Marcia Ball

Marcia Ball



I really like Marcia Ball's sound and style. She was born in Texas (I don't hold that against her) but she was raised in Louisiana, and it shows. What with the way she handles a keyboard, is there any question?

The way Wikipedia puts it;
Ball is known for her piano style, which shows elements of zydeco, swamp blues, Louisiana blues and boogie woogie. Most of her most well-known recordings were released on Rounder Records in the 1980s and early 1990s. She was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in 1990.
In the video below, I like the little talk she gives the audience.
