Gaby Moreno – Hermana Rosetta

(click song title above to listen)

Gaby Moreno‘s Ilusión represents a high-water mark in a musical career that’s never been predictable. It’s one of the strongest statements I’ve heard from a musician who ignores boundaries and genre classifications to create a sound greater than the sum of its parts.” – Felix Contreras, NPR Music

This week we had to spotlight Gaby‘s stunning Spanish language cover of Sam Phillips“Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us” from her recently Grammy-nominated fifth album Ilusión.

Gaby has been one of our favorite singers in L.A. and beyond for some time now. Equal parts jazz singer, blues singer, and Latin American Folk poet, her performances never fail to inspire.

Be sure to catch Gaby tonight with her band at The Roxy or with an all-star band this Sunday December 11th at The Theatre at the Ace Hotel in a Bluegrass Situation Presentation: A Tribute to Linda Ronstadt. The show will Feature performances by friends and colleagues of Linda including Jackson Browne, Maria Muldaur, JD Souther, David Lindley, and several surprise guests. Also appearing will be contemporary artists influenced by her musical legacy including Grace Potter, Dawes, I’m With Her (Sara Watkins, Aoife O’Donovan, Sarah Jarosz), all let the by Watkins Family Hour house band feat. Sara & Sean Watkins. Both Guaranteed to be amazing nights!

All proceeds from December 11th will benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris – Western Wall

(click song title above to listen)

In 1999, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and legendary producer Glyn Johns (The Who, The Beatles, The Clash) took over a house on the property of the historic Arizona Inn in Tucson and assembled a makeshift studio to record their genre-bending Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions. The trio assembled a studio band which included Neil Young, Andy Fairweather Low, Ethan Johns, Bernie Leadon, and Kate & Anna McGarrigle, among others – and the ladies chose material by such diverse songwriters as Sinead O’Connor, Patty Griffin, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Luscious Jackson’s Jill Cunniff, Andy Prieboy, and Jackson Browne. Amidst all these amazing songs, the musical centerpiece of this adventurous project proved to be Rosanne Cash‘s breathtaking “Western Wall.” Originally cut for Rosanne’s wonderfully sparse 1996 10 Song Demo album – and later re-recorded in fuller form on 2003′s Rules of Travel. Western Wall’s eerily hopeful lyrics proved a perfect vehicle for the duo’s angelic harmonies. A classic.
