From the DVD Burning Down the House (2002) “At the time, Etta was carrying a little extra weight so it was hard for her to stand for long… but still she was at the top of her game… man could she deliver a song like no other. We cut the solos down for the live DVD/video shoot but most times she would tell me to ‘ keep on blowin’ Jimmy Z!!!’… and, as you might suspect, I didn’t need much encouragement! (LOL)”
