During her remarkable 21-year recording career, Mindi Abair has garnered 2 GRAMMY Nominations, recorded with some of the biggest names in music, and built a substantial following among jazz and blues audiences with her soaring melodies and powerhouse style. The Best of Mindi Abair is a 19-song collection of her biggest hits, previously unreleased gems, a few of Mindi’s personal favorites, and her brand-new song “April.” It features a 16-page booklet of personal liner notes written by Mindi, and photos spanning her career drawn from her archive. Hits like “Lucy’s,” “Bloom” and “Come As You Are” appear as radio edits, available here for the first time, so you can listen as you originally fell in love with them on the radio. “Make It Happen,” written and recorded with legendary soul icon Booker T. Jones, has never been released until now. Other inspired collaborations include “I’ll Be Your Home” featuring Keb’ Mo’, “Just Say When” penned and recorded with Gregg Allman, and her woman-powered blues anthem “Pretty Good For A Girl” featuring guitar hero Joe Bonamassa. Fan favorite “Be Beautiful” checks into the compilation, as does a previously unissued take on the John Lennon classic, “Imagine.” “I Love To Play The Saxophone” and “Good Day For The Blues” hail from her albums as Mindi Abair and The Boneshakers, and the brand-new song, “April,” recorded as the world was shutting down in 2020 rounds out the collection. It brings Mindi's path full circle as it’s an instrumental reminiscent of her classic hits and provides the perfect jumping off point for the next chapter to begin. Follow the arc of Mindi’s unique musical journey with this 19-song collection featuring songs from 11 different albums, 28 stunning photos, and Mindi telling her story in her own words … a must for any Mindi fan.
