WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In, Turn Up): Marcia Ball “That’s How It Goes”

Tune into WMSE, for DJ Terry Havel is talking right now to the one and only fiery and talented blues pianist and vocalist, Marcia Ball. Ball is world-renowned for her New Orleans’-style stomp and swagger with plenty of boogie-woogie thrown in, and her latest release, Roadside Attractions [Alligator Records] is a good showing of her talents on rocking up those blues. Her admiration of the legendary Irma Thomas shines through, too.

Listen at  91.7 FM on your radio dial or listen back in the WMSE archives. Ball plays Milwaukee’s Shank Hall tomorrow night for an 8 p.m. 21+ show. Enjoy Ball’s talents in the above video, where she plays pianos across Austin, Texas for her single “That’s How It Goes”.
