William Bell – Walking On A Tightrope

(click song title above to listen)

One of our favorite albums of 2016, This Is Where I Live was William Bell’s triumphant return to Stax Records and his first major release in almost four decades. Released on June 3rd, 2016, This Is Where I Live was produced by John Leventhal, who co-wrote this week’s poignant top tune with Rosanne Cash.

The album is nominated for two 2017 GRAMMY Awards (Feb 12th) – Best Traditional R&B Performance & Best Americana Album. Bell was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting at the 15th Annual Americana Honors & Awards Show, and last month he was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame.

William Bell signed to Stax in 1961 and delivered one of the iconic soul label’s earliest hits with “You Don’t Miss Your Water.” He also co-wrote, with Booker T. Jones, the classic “Born Under A Bad Sign” for Albert King, which was later famously covered by Cream, Jimi Hendrix and many others.

Coming soon to a city near you, don’t miss the amazing William Bell!

“A Memphis Legend is Back” – The New York Times
“It’s resonant, wise, and considered music, the kind of direct songwriting that helped Bell make his name” – Vice Noisey
“Still in excellent form…the most personal work Bell has ever created.” – Chicago Tribune

Nancy Adams – He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again

(click song title above to listen)

While stumbling around in the tape vault a couple of years ago we came across this little gem, the original 1966 demo for Cy Coleman‘s “He’s Stuck in the Chimney Again”.

The music is by Coleman (who was riding high at the time with Peggy Lee’s #1 pop hit “Big Spender”, a song from the Broadway production of his hit musical, Sweet Charity) and the lyrics are by Floyd Huddleston. Coleman and Huddleston had enjoyed some chart success with “Sweet Talk” recorded by Damita Jo for Mercury Records the year before. The vocal is sung by Huddleston’s wife Nancy Adams, who is also the lovely voice behind Maid Marian from Disney’s 1973 film Robin Hood.

Please enjoy this superb version by the Jon Rauhouse Orchestra feat. Rachel Flotard of Visqueen!

Happy Holidays everyone!

(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.
