A public domain (in Australia & Germany where Soundcloud is located) Bessie Smith song.

Thinking Blues

From Wikipedia:
Bessie Smith (April 15, 1894 – September 26, 1937) was an American blues singer widely renowned during the Jazz Age. Nicknamed the "Empress of the Blues", she was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and was a major influence on fellow blues singers, as well as jazz vocalists.

We modernized the song a little.

Janice - Vocals
I played the guitars.
Bud - recording and muse.

The trumpet whilst "bluesy" did not play the blues so I edited what he played in Melodyne.
