William Blake: Echoes of Etta

William Blake—not the visionary 18th-century English poet and artist, silly, but the high-flying local tenor—returns to Joe's Pub to celebrate a live recording of his high-energy salute to the late Etta James. If any white man can pull this off, the gifted Blake might just be the one. He's got an uncanny sound that won't quit.
