After all the Bonnie Raitt albums I’ve played again and again, after the live concerts I’ve attended, after all her songs I’ve sung along with, the thing I remember most vividly about Bonnie Raitt is a concert moment. I’ve seen her several times, but I think this time was in Austin. Everyone in the band left the stage, she put down her guitar and sat at a keyboard. The lights dimmed to a single spotlight. She sang “Angel from Montgomery.” Just the piano and her voice. It was moving and melancholy and utterly beautiful and touched me deeply. I know much about Bonnie Raitt’s life and work and art, but that one quiet performance is my most vivid impression of her.
