Chicago singer Christy Bennett has been influenced by and performed the work of her share of jazz legends, but her specialty is uncovering the gifts of lesser known songwriters, especially women. On her new album, Good Morning, Heartache: The Music of Irene Higginbotham , she explores the work of an overlooked ‘40s composer (niece of the great swing trombonist J. C. Higginbotham) who is perhaps best known for her work with Billie Holiday but also wrote songs recorded by Anita O’Day, Dinah Washington, Peggy Lee and Nat ‘King’ Cole. Bennett, whose collection of songs written by Django Reinhardt with rarely heard lyrics dips into Higginbotham’s songbook as well as other lesser-known artists at regular appearances around the city of Chicago. Those interested in Bennett’s research will find videos, recordings and written material at her website www.nerd-mountain.com.
