Reseña de álbum

The 2003 CD simply called Odetta and released by the Vermont independent label Silverwolf Records is a recording of the folksinger's appearance at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 1996. At the outset, Odetta takes note of the recent death of Ella Fitzgerald (on June 15, 1996) and dedicates her first song, "Black Woman," to her jazz contemporary. After a spirited performance of "The Fox," she spends the bulk of her set in a 27-plus-minute medley of traditional folk songs, seguing from one to another before the audience can applaud, strumming her guitar powerfully or putting it aside to take sections a cappella.

Odetta's mother began saving money to pay for voice lessons for her, but was advised to...
