After several graceful albums of original material blending country, folk and torch pop, not to mention digressions for gospel and a Loretta Lynn tribute, Eilen Jewell may well have said to herself, “Why not the blues next?” Why not, indeed? Featuring 12 covers, the engaging Down Hearted Blues barely qualifies as a departure for the Idaho-bred singer-songwriter, whose languid delivery, regardless of genre, has often suggested a descendant of Billie Holiday, or a down-home cousin of Madeleine Peyroux.
