Synopsis

Amazon.com
Dedicated to the late Charles Brown, Maria Muldaur's Meet Me Where They Play the Blues smokes and sizzles. A tightly packed collection of 12 songs on slow burn, the CD begins with the sensual "Soothe Me," highlighting the smooth-as-silk quality of Muldaur's voice. Other highlights include a duet with Brown on the classic "Gee Baby, Ain't I Good to You," a naturally sassy take on "It Ain't the Meat, It's the Motion," an affectionate tribute to both Brown and the late Johnny Adams with "He Don't Have the Blues Anymore," and a rousing conclusion (complete with gospel-style backup singers) with "The Promised Land." The liner notes indicate that Brown was the inspiration for this album, and one can hear it in every note of Muldaur's soulful voice. --Genevieve Williams

CD Reviews

Happy Blues, Sad Blues, Sweet Music.
Alex Karan | Colorado Springs, Colorado | 01/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I heard one song of Maria's on the radio, and thought "I have to have this CD." Bought it, and I believe this to be the best CD I've ever bought. Muldaur has a way of singing blues that will take you through the range of emotions... from very blue to "Happy Blues" if there is such a thing. Muldaur doesn't deserve all the credit. The band is absolutely wonderful in their own right."
The blues never sounded so good!

"Those of you who have only spent midnight at the oasis with Maria Muldaur, should visit again. After being written off as a one hit wonder, Ms. Muldaur moved south and has been releasing some of the best vocal blues albums for over the past 10 years. The albums, including this one, are more than blues albums...they are steeped in the feel of the south. Warm nights on the porch, lazy Sunday afternoons under the weeping willow...with a just a touch of spice. This cajun spiced Stevie Nicks smooth delivery of these songs will have you packing your bags for New Orleans."

"Maria Muldaur has always been one of my favorite vocalists. No matter what recordings I listen to (the early jug band stuff, the initial "hit" solo period on Warner Brothers, the countless recordings on countless lower profile labels, the gospel testifying, the recordings of really great songs for really great children, or the "bluesiana" resurgence of the past decade or so), one threaded needle of gold holds it all together - that amazing voice, which just gets sweeter, richer, more expressive and sexier with each release. And while it's really difficult for me (who really likes everything she does) to review Maria's albums, her latest - "Meet Me Where They Play the Blues" - is in my top three. Dedicated to the late, great Charles Brown, the disc features a bittersweet duet with the blues legend (Brown's last recording before his passing), plus many other standout performances, including a must-be-heard-to-be-believed vocal on "The Promised Land."
