The comparisons to Aretha Franklin are inevitable, but Juanita Williams' voice and passion are her own. Her debut, Introducing Juanita Williams, features a wide-ranging sample of modern and classic blues tunes, everything from Ike and Tina Turner's "Crazy About You Baby" to Freddie King's "That Will Never Do" and Bobby Bland's "Two Steps from the Blues." Anybody who has doubts about the future of women blues vocalists should pick up Williams' impressive debut.
