Susan Tedeschi – Just Won’t Burn


Just Won’t Burn, Susan Tedeschi’s 1998 debut, alerted blues and rock fans that there was a new chick on the scene. She was very good looking, and she could wail – on vocals and guitar. What an incredible talent! People took serious notice, and a new, deserving star was born. Tedeschi can flat out play guitar, and her singing is accurate, passionate but perfectly restrained. Everything is proportionate on this album, a true masterpiece. Tedeschi turns in seven outstanding originals and four well-chosen covers.

The very idea of a lady slinging a guitar sets traditional blues fans swooning. But with the release of her debut, Susan Tedeschi slings, aims, and hits her target. What a talent! Singer, songwriter, player, performer, and more, the lady from Boston can do it all. Effective, she does justice to John Prine’s classic “Angel from Montgomery” while making her own efforts known. Her tunes include “You Need to Be with Me,” “Found Someone New,” and the title cut. Leading her own band, she has what it takes to keep the boys in line while she wails away. Big Mama Thornton and Bessie Smith must be proud, and B.B. King must be impressed, since she has opened for that blues master on several occasions. Just a little taste of things to come, Just Won’t Burn blazes a trail that Tedeschi is pioneering for herself and younger women in the blues world. A brave heart with spunk and plenty of soul.
