Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa collaborated on the Grammy nominated Blues album Seesaw four year ago. The new year finds them together again on a covers release titled Black Coffee (1/26 Mascot Records). Hart and Bonamassa cut the 10 songs on the release in less than a week in Las Vegas in 2016, working with Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (keyboard), Rob McNelley (rhythm guitar), Lee Thornburg horns) and Ron Dziubla (sax).
