Ruby Wilson - A Song For You


Ruby Wilson
is the undisputed Queen of Beale Street, a Memphis legend whose powerful, emotional, voice has been applauded worldwide. Prior to a stroke earlier this year, she was the headliner at B.B. King's, the epicenter of nightclub entertainment in the Mid-South. Ruby recorded over 10 albums and performed with B.B. King, Ray Charles, Robert Goulet, The Four Tops, Jerry Butler, Willie Nelson, and Isaac Hayes. 

She was also an accomplished actress, with roles in Black Snake Moan, Cookie's Fortune, The People vs. Larry Flynt, The Chamber, The Client, and The Firm. (Watch her live performance with the Climax Jazz Band in Japan.)  

Producer Norbert Putnam masterfully showcases Ruby at her best on A Song For You a collection of classic standards superbly rendered.

Highlights on this album:  AT LAST, A SONG FOR YOU, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MADE .
