The grande dame of Houston blues divas is on a roll. Trudy Lynn is enjoying another Blues Music Award nomination for her latest album, last October’s I'll Sing the Blues For You (Connor Ray), which scatters songs by the likes of Lowell Fulson, Big Mama Thornton, Johnny Clyde Copeland and even Mel Tillis around her funky original composition “Thru Chasin’ You.” As described by the website Jazz Weekly, the collection “[makes] you feel the sweat and blisters from each piece.” This year the Fifth Ward native is up for the Koko Taylor Award for Traditional Blues Female Artist — alongside fellow Houstonians Annika Chambers and Diunna Greenleaf, no less. Sponsored by the Blues Foundation, the BMAs will be handed out May 11 at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, but until then a Saturday night at the Big Easy with Trudy and her band is about as close to a sure thing as it gets in this town.
