ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ruby Dee & the Snakehandlers make American music with rockabilly, swing, country and R&B inflections, and their latest album, Little Black Heart is a tour de force of exemplary musicianship. Ruby wrote every song on the album, with the exception of a Jack Scott chestnut that was a favorite of the band. Little Black Heart is a fantastic album with tight, catchy lyrics, it’s a testament to Ruby’s return to the level of musicianship she had to struggle to regain from a brain injury. Her smoky, expressive alto and the dynamic band lifts swing, rock n’ roll, R&B and rockabilly songs that cover everything from her accident to social commentary on certain music scenes and their cliques, to love gone wrong. The title track “Little Black Heart” is an old-fashioned minor-key murder ballad with steel guitar providing the spooky atmosphere.
