When singer Barbara Morrison arrived here from her native Detroit in the early 1970s, she quickly found herself at the center of a rich, roaring blues scene. Mentored by the brilliant alto sax badass Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Morrison was able to bask in the glorious twilight of South-Central R&B, hobnobbing with such fellow wizards as Etta James, Joe Turner, Bullmoose Jackson and bandleader Johnny Otis, with whom she worked for 20 swinging years. Along the way, the singer developed a deeply expressive jazz vocal style, loaded with adventurous phrasing and soulful smolder. Equal parts tradition bearer and high-adventure stylist, Morrison is always to joy to hear, and this Mother’s Day brunch affair will most assuredly poach your eggs to perfection.
