CeeLo Green keeps moving through a quarter-century career full of unforeseeable twists and turns. Between scaling heights with the Dungeon Family, Goodie Mob, and Gnarls Barkley, and minor and major roles in hits by TLC, the Pussycat Dolls, and Bruno Mars, he has grown a solo discography showcasing divergent creative impulses as much as his undervalued vocals and songwriting. Going most recently by isolated moments on The Lady Killer ("Old Fashioned" more so than "Fuck You") and Heart Blanche ("Mother May I"), it was apparent that the Atlanta-born son of ministers could make a whole LP of organic soul evoking an era predating his birth -- if only he had the will, means, and a lack of major-label commercial expectations. That notion is essentially made manifest with CeeLo Green Is Thomas Callaway. The title imparts an intent to humanize an artist whose outsized persona, displayed boldly as ever in 2020 on the British version of The Masked Singer, has sometimes overshadowed his music. Indeed, CeeLo resembles an everyman here more than ever before, welcomed into the extended family of Easy Eye Sound, the authenticity-upholding studio and label operated by Dan Auerbach (whose Black Keys have recorded extensively with Danger Mouse, CeeLo's Gnarls Barkley partner). Producer Auerbach and his crew of mostly elder Nashville and Memphis session pros, some of whom assist CeeLo and Auerbach with songwriting, foster a straightforward set that, on the surface, is fine Southern soul -- late-'60s in spirit -- with a stronger country flavor than expected from CeeLo. In a way, the connection to the CeeLo catalog is a little looser than it is to Easy Eye offspring like Yola's Walk Through Fire and Marcus King's El Dorado, and even John Anderson's Years, as "Slow Down" -- the one song here that CeeLo didn't co-write, a mismatch -- was first heard on that latter LP. As suggested on "People Watching," one of a few feel-good numbers, this is made for summertime porch listening, and it's chock-full of wafting grooves and lingering ballads that are ornamented with strings, horns, bells, and background voices, but are never overdone. Other uplifted and upbeat songs, such as "Lead Me" and "Doing It All Together," are natural picks for singles, but they're outclassed by the Philly-style weeper "Thinking Out Loud," where CeeLo makes like the Stylistics' Russell Thompkins, Jr. with his bittersweet upper register. Everything is direct, whether CeeLo is communicating with a lover, reflecting upon parenthood and mortality, or beset with romantic instability. Moreover, it's thoroughly earnest with a high level of musical detail and a seemingly untreated result attained only by master craftsmen working with a schedule that precludes fuss. (It was recorded in two days, the first of which CeeLo assumed would be spent on writing.) When placed in the context of the singer's previous albums, its clarity, focus, and uniformly wholesome nature are almost stupefying. The restrictions have a liberating effect.

Santana, le lézard de Tijuana

Une place au panthéon du rock assurée dès ses débuts avec sa performance ensorcelante à Woodstock, une dizaine de Grammy Awards sous le bras et des millions de disques écoulés grâce à sa renaissance en star de la latin pop, des featurings plus prestigieux les uns que les autres… Santana fait partie de ces artistes qui ont tout raflé : la reconnaissance du public, de la critique et de ses pairs. Portrait d’un artiste comblé qui enchaîne les mues comme un lézard.

L’âge d’or funk de James Brown

Entre 1967 et 1974, le Godfather transforme sa soul en funk. Entouré par les musiciens les plus groovy du moment, James Brown orchestre une BO en phase avec les changements de la société américaine. Et tout le monde saute à bord de la Sex Machine !

Verve, le son de l’Amérique

En définissant son label comme étant « le son de l’Amérique », Norman Granz avait visé dans le mille. Certes, c’était au siècle dernier. Certes, ça ne concernait que le jazz. Mais aujourd’hui encore, avec un catalogue dans lequel se bousculent Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans, Lester Young, Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson et des dizaines d’autres, Verve reste l’une des plus belles aventures de l’histoire de la musique.
