Ma Rainey was also known as the “Mother of Blues,” and was among the first professional blues singers to hail from Columbus, Georgia. “Slow Driving Moan” starts off with easy sounds from the piano and trumpet all the while building up a stage for Ma Rainey’s signature vocals. Known for her ‘moaning’ style of singing, “Slow Driving Moan” illustrates this divine talent remarkably. With her powerful vocal abilities, Rainey’s performance in this number surely brings back the late 1920s for every listener to experience in a three minute time span. Ma Rainey’s legacy stays alive with each listen. Enjoy!
