Product description

Netflix celebrates the Blues in the biopic ''Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'' starring Academy Award-winning ''Viola Davis'' as the ''Mother of the Blues'' opposite Chadwick Boseman in his final role.

Ma Rainey has come to be recognized as one of the towering figures of early blues, pioneering the recording of blues by female artists during the earliest years of electric recording.

Born in 1896, she became popular as a traveling minstrel, and during her touring across the southern states in the early years of the 20th century absorbed blues songs which she incorporated into her act. Turning to the vaudeville stage, she was heard in Chicago theaters and signed in 1924 by J. Mayo Williams at Paramount, for whom she recorded for the next five years, working solo, or with piano or guitar accompaniment, or more often with jazz ensembles, which were billed on record as her Georgia Jazz Band. Her accompanists during that time featured Louis Armstrong, Fletcher Henderson, Coleman Hawkins, Buster Bailey and Don Redman as well as blues musicians like Tampa Red, Blind Blake and Thomas Dorsey.

This great-value 94-track 4-CD collection comprises all of the titles she recorded for Paramount during her career (she recorded more than one take of some titles, but we only include one of those versions), until the Wall Street Crash and the Depression put an end to her recording.

Featuring classics like ''See See Rider'', ''Ma Rainey's Black Bottom'' and''Stack O'Lee Blues''.
