Synopsis

Product Description
Finally, with the release of RHYTHM COUNTRY AND BLUES, someone has had the courage, the vision and the commercial horse sense to acknowledge what several generations of musicians have recognized without reservation: That for all of their seeming differences in posture and attitude, the enduring soul of R&B and country music remains one and the same.The resulting music is never less than excellent, and in some cases, the emotional chemistry is absolutely remarkable: The quavering falsetto of Aaron Neville and the rich, mellow moan of Trisha Yearwood enliven Patsy Cline's signature "I Fall To Pieces." Little Richard and Tanya Tucker illustrate how R&B and country gave birth to rock 'n roll on a raucous rendition of Eddie Cochran's "Somethin' Else." Chet Atkins and Allen Toussaint evoke strains of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans on the elegant jazz-funk of the later's "Southern Nights," while both Patti LaBelle with Travis Tritt and The Staple Singers with Marty Stuart engage in a series of epic gospel exchanges on "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" and "The Weight."Performances throughout are delightful and ingenuous, and ringing with mutual respect. That many of the songs have been hits in both genres only adds resonance ....Thankfully nothing's too deep here except the roots....
