Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★★

When not launching all voicings of the beauty of its time, that of the earliest and crispest eras of POC art, it's highlighting the timbre, grace, and passion of the people within all of the notes and speaker-foam. The haunting presence of swing, a sound long gone, and Chadwick, a face gone too soon. A good reminder of two things the world took from us.
