13) Bessie Smith: The empress of the blues. Chosen by Dana Gillespie: When I was 11, my sister threw out an EP, which I rescued, and it had a track on it by Bessie Smith. I loved her voice from the moment I heard it. I sang along to Empty Bed Blues, not understanding the lyrics but engaging with the emotion. But, with shades of Howlin’ Wolf, it exudes perfect theatre, his early bar-floor view of the world’s deadbeats and lost souls infused with a sense of romance that’s pure Americana, a world of diners and classic cars, Edward Hopper’s paintings and Jack Kerouac’s pie-eyed ramblings. And in recent years he’s become ever more inventive. Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith were pivotal influences on the singer who producer John Hammond called an improvising jazz genius and soon the teen was working with Teddy Wilson, Lester Young and Artie Shaw.
