For soul fanatics, the Motown archives are the musical equivalent to the Wonka building in Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. Every twist and turn is filled with the possibility of resuscitation, preservation, and in some instances surprise discoveries. Such is the case with Blue, which was supposed to be the follow-up album to Diana Ross' wildly successful Lady Sings the Blues, but was shelved when Motown maestro Berry Gordy took Ross back in a more pop direction with Touch Me in the Morning. This direction, while proving successful at the time, is unfortunate, as the performances on Blue rival (and in some instances best) the performances on Lady Sings the Blues. A few of these tracks would later see the day on other albums ("Little Girl Blue" on Touch Me in the Morning and "Smile" on Diana Ross in 1976) but with alternate vocal takes and mixes. But Ross' portrayal of Billie Holiday was effective; it wasn't just a carbon copy reenactment of Holiday, but a cultivation of her essence when placed on-stage or in the studio behind a microphone. Gil Askey's arrangements are top-notch without sounding like dinner theater knock-offs. Blue is an album every bit as bold an artistic statement as her contemporaries Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, who were recording the opuses Where I'm Coming From and What's Going On around the same time, and for Ross fans, Blue is every bit as enjoyable as her sultriest moments as the supreme Supreme.

Neo-Soul in 10 Alben

Mitte der 90er Jahre, als der Hip-Hop sein goldenes Zeitalter erlebte, begann auch der Soul seine Revolution. Mit Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, Jill Scott und einigen anderen gewinnt das Genre die Klasse, Nüchternheit und Raffinesse zurück, die die Alben von Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield oder Roberta Flack belebt haben. Nach den Jahren der ultrakommerziellen sirupartigen R&B-Herrschaft belebt der Neo-Soul (oder auch Nu-Soul), der viel mehr Underground war, die Flamme des ursprünglichen Soul, in seinen Arrangements wie in seinen Texten. Eine kleine aber sehr einflussreiche Bewegung.

Jordi Savall – Musik, Leben, Tonaufnahmen

Es regnete in Strömen in jener Oktobernacht im französischen Bugey, was zu dieser Jahreszeit dort häufig vorkommt. Es war Mitternacht. Wir waren ungefähr fünfzig Musikliebhaber, die beim Festival d’Ambronay schweigend in der Feuchtigkeit und in der Kälte warteten. Dann erschien auf einmal Jordi Savall, lautlos, in einen weißen, nassen Trenchcoat gehüllt, wie Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, einen Kasten in Form eines menschliche Körpers an sich gedrückt. Mit langsamen Bewegungen holte er, nein, kein Maschinengewehr, sondern eine Viola da Gamba hervor, die er mit größter Umsicht behandelte, und begann, sie zu stimmen. Dann geschah im Publikum das Wunder.

Motown, der Sound des jungen Amerika

Das von Berry Gordy gegründete Label feiert bald seinen 60. Geburtstag und ist nach wie vor für Pop und Soul die Referenz schlechthin. Eine Hitfabrik mit Arbeitern wie Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Rick James oder den Temptations…
