Zora is also a regular at the Chicago Blues Festival and a frequent headliner in both European and American Blues Festivals. Her soul-drenched voice is easily recognizable to any blues fans. On this Blues CD, she is backed by New York City stalwarts, Little Mike and the Tornadoes.

After touring and recording with Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Louis Meyers, Jimmy Rogers, Roscoe Gordon and Big Daddy Kinsey all throughout the eighties, Little Mike and the Tornadoes started recording and releasing successful recordings on their own. It was only natural that 25 years later old friends got together for a collaboration of this sort.
