Susan Tedeschi's first album, "Just Won't Burn" will be released nationally next month by Tone-Cool, a subsidiary of Massachusetts-based Rounder Records, but she's making her L.A. debut tonight at B.B. King's. On her album cover, singer-guitarist Tedeschi looks like the proverbial girl next door. The kind of gal who might help you with your math homework, if you asked her nicely enough.

Blues guitarist Susan Tedeschi has learned her lessons well. Performing Friday at the House of Blues, the Boston-based singer-songwriter played tunes associated with such giants of the genre as Ruth Brown, Koko Taylor, Albert King and Junior Wells.
