Album Notes
"Here I am next to the Mississippi river, it seems I have already crossed a thousand times in my blues turnarounds…
But you can't really understand the sound of Louisiana until you are there feeling it gets you right down in the belly!
In this album, I hope to have transmitted all the joy I experienced when singing in a very special place, rediscovered in myself, thanks to New Orleans!"

“Roman Blues Woman”, is a spot I wrote about myself, it's business sound card to show, when I travel and play around the world, that the river Tevere is just like the Mississippi!

"I was born in Rome under the blues sign, October 3th, the night before Janis Joplin died in Los Angeles .. and I celebrate my birthday every year with Steve Ray Vaughan and Albert Collins at a party between heaven and hell!"

"I start up my career in the school church choir and soon I discover that my spirit is more in line with the pace of the Devil.. So I'm leaving Rome to get away from the influence of the nuns and the Vatican ... I hitch hike to London to play "4 tips Only" form home bathroom to Hyde Park corners... when it does not rain! So, missing the sun, I decide to slide over to California!

Artistically grown in England and especially in the U.S. where she performed at the House of Blues and BB King Blues Club in Los Angeles, has his recording debut in 2002 with the so-called "Dues Blues", recorded live at Big Mama, the home of the blues in Rome, following a dense concert season, getting a great response from audiences and critics.

Cerri and Gege Telesforo; Fussy Blues with Willie Murphy, Trasimeno Blues, Blues Festival Aventine in Abruzzo, Hard Rock Cafe in Rome, from which is extracted a television special; Rome meets the World at Villa Ada with Alex Britti and Louisiana Red.
She collaborated with Massimo Nunzi & Jazz Orchestra for the event "History of Jazz" at the Teatro Sistina in Rome, in theater she has worked next to director Francesco Apolloni, at the Sala Umberto in Rome and at the Giffoni Film Festival.
She is acclaimed by the press as "the Blues made in Italy most beautiful hope" , high class singer and grit guitarist ,
featuring an intense personality that is reflected in his voice, sensual and scratchy, and in his guitar phrasing, with the slide guitar and Dobro."

Blues between Mississippi and Tiber banks!
Great disc capturing the many facets of New Orleans! From the opening harmonica and guitar blues of ‘Evil Gal’, the soulful keyboard-oriented ‘I’d rather go Blind’, the marching brass band arrangement of ‘Hello Dolly’, the self-penned titled track ‘Roman Blues Woman’, the unusual ukulele and glockenspiel pairing on ‘Southern Nights’ and the introspective Dobro guitar and voice of ‘Ice Cold Water’, all the tracks are sung with the warmth, energy and inner understanding which characterizes all Francesca De Fazi’s vocals.
