Listening to Rhiannon Giddens' debut solo album a few years after its original 2015 release, one can easily see how Tomorrow Is My Turn makes sense both as part of her larger oeuvre and as the opening statement for a solo career that would be defined by a creative tension between the past and the present. After her buzzy success with the Carolina Chocolate Drops' old-timey revivalism, Giddens' first solo outing shifts toward dramatic arrangements of some relatively unheard folk, blues, and country songbook treasures to showcase her clear, powerful voice. Takes on Elizabeth Cotten's "Shake Sugaree" and Sister Rosetta Tharpe's "Up Above My Head" call most clearly back to the vibe of Carolina Chocolate Drops, but for the most part, the album is pointing forward to the rich textural diversity Giddens would explore on future albums. Most of the songs here, ranging from traditional numbers like "O Love Is Teasin'" and a Dolly Parton deep cut "Don't Let It Trouble Your Mind" to more well-known songs like "She's Got You" (made famous by Patsy Cline), evoke the era from which they hail, but the production and arrangements (crafted by Giddens and producer T-Bone Burnett), for the most part, displace them from their origins, turning Giddens into both an interpreter and a new owner. Only one track—"Black is the Color"—fumbles the approach by trying to explicitly merge contemporary production touches with a swinging backing arrangement, but it's followed immediately by a strong, sparse take on "Round About the Mountain" that is emotionally riveting and one of the album's best. Clean, clear production throughout correctly focuses the listener's attention on Giddens' voice, but also allows plenty of room for the organic instrumentation that supports it. © Jason Ferguson/Qobuz

Joni Mitchell: the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, 'Blue' celebrates its 50th birthday this year. And it hasn't aged a day. But why are artists the world over still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter?

Johnny Cash Behind Bars

Two legendary live albums released at the end of the sixties gave Johnny Cash’s career a huge boost and turned him into an international star. They were two records were unlike any others: they were recorded in prison. But how did the Man in Black find himself in such an unusual concert hall?

Daniel Johnston, A Troubling, Troubled Icon

No one ever sounded like Daniel Johnston. The little known depressive artist found fame thanks to his peers’ recognition. He passed away on September 11th, 2019, at the age of 58; his discography has slowly become the symbol of naïve, lo-fi and hyper-emotional music. It’s never too late to (re)discover this bona fide underground genius, and his heartfelt, authentic music.
