Check out this review for Janiva Magness' latest CD, "What Will Love Do" from Harp Magazine's Blurt-online.
"Detroit-born Janiva Magness stands out as far above the competition. The dearth of truly captivating contemporary blues artists with something distinctive to offer beyond a retro rehash or a tepid “update” is the situation to which Magness' music responds so directly. Just as she did with her excellent 2006 album, Move You, Magness brings vibrance, viscerality, guts, and plain unadulterated soul to her Alligator debut, What Love Will Do."
