Janiva Magness is an artist adept at playing many roles. Her chief endeavor is that of blues chanteuse and keeper of the flame for the legends who lived those songs and travelled our country’s dusty trails. She’s also a published author and passionate advocate for at-risk children.
Her new album, “Change in the Weather,” tackles the songbook of American treasure John Fogerty. The 12 songs are familiar but not tired. The reimagining is a welcome interpretation of classics with a message that repeats itself every generation.
