This is the debut album from 27-year-old Pyeng Threadgill, whose father is free jazz saxophonist Henry Threadgill and mother is a founder of the Urban Bushwomen. On this CD, Pyeng performs the songs of blues legend Robert Johnson, presenting new arrangements that combine the old and new: quot;Love in Vainquot; is done with a reggae back-beat, quot;Sweet Home Chicagoquot; has a New Orleans marching band ambience, while pop, hip hop, jazz and latin monotonous find their way into other songs. Accompanied by trumpet, trombone, guitar, cello drums, piano and back up singers, all of her arrangements are compelling and original.
