«Dall’età di due anni, tutto ciò che conoscevo era la musica gospel. È stata una parte talmente importante della mia vita che è diventata naturale come danzare. Un modo per allontanarmi dai problemi, e un mezzo per liberarmi». I fan di Elvis conoscono la venerazione del loro idolo per il gospel. Fan sempre pronti a spendere quando si tratta di aggiungere un nuovo disco alla loro discoteca già estremamente fornita. Perfino quando l’impresa risulta un po’ troppo commerciale… Con questo Where No One Stands Alone, è dunque il lato gospel del King che viene celebrato. Prodotto da Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley e Andy Childs, l’album pubblicato nell’agosto del 2018 contiene alcune versioni rielaborate in collaborazione con artisti che hanno lavorato con Elvis sul palco o in studio, come Darlene Love (che ha cantato con lui per la prima volta durante uno spettacolo televisivo speciale per la NBC nel 1968) e Dr. Cissy Houston (il quale, con le Sweet Inspirations, ha accompagnato la star sul paco a partire dal 1969). Where No One Stands Alone propone inoltre un duetto con sua figlia Lisa Marie Presley, sulla canzone che dà il titolo al disco. « Cantare con mio padre è stata un’esperienza molto forte ed emozionante, scrive l’erede nelle note dell’album. Le parole mi parlano e mi arrivano fino all’anima. Sono sicura che hanno raggiunto allo stesso modo il cuore di mio padre». Tra queste registrazioni troviamo alcuni classici cari al King come Crying In The Chapel, How Great Thou Art, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Saved composta da Jerry Lieber e Mike Stoller, So High, Stand By Me, In The Garden e l’inevitabile Amazing Grace. Insomma, brani essenzialmente tratti dai suoi due album gospel, How Great Thou Art pubblicato nel 1967 e He Touched Me nel 1972. Concretamente, solo la voce del King è stata conservata. Sono state dunque modificate le parti dei Jordanaires, delle chitarre di Scotty Moore, Chip Young e James Burton, il pianoforte di Floyd Cramer e la batteria di D.J. Fontana. Quando si conoscono le registrazioni originarie, l’amputazione è dolorosa. Addirittura insopportabile… Eppure, il lavoro che viene proposto in questo album è più che onesto e non denatura né l’intenzione iniziale del King, né lo spirito delle sue interpretazioni. Logicamente, questa produzione del 2018 apporta un tocco «contemporaneo» senza per questo farlo in un culto ipocrita e vano dei valori di un tempo. Ma più di tutto, la voce del padrone di casa resta intatta e sempre tanto straordinaria. L’unione tra il Re e il Signore non poteva che essere divina… © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Descrizione dell'album

«Dall’età di due anni, tutto ciò che conoscevo era la musica gospel. È stata una parte talmente importante della mia vita che è diventata naturale come danzare. Un modo per allontanarmi dai problemi, e un mezzo per liberarmi». I fan di Elvis conoscono la venerazione del loro idolo per il gospel. Fan sempre pronti a spendere quando si tratta di aggiungere un nuovo disco alla loro discoteca già estremamente fornita. Perfino quando l’impresa risulta un po’ troppo commerciale… Con questo Where No One Stands Alone, è dunque il lato gospel del King che viene celebrato. Prodotto da Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley e Andy Childs, l’album pubblicato nell’agosto del 2018 contiene alcune versioni rielaborate in collaborazione con artisti che hanno lavorato con Elvis sul palco o in studio, come Darlene Love (che ha cantato con lui per la prima volta durante uno spettacolo televisivo speciale per la NBC nel 1968) e Dr. Cissy Houston (il quale, con le Sweet Inspirations, ha accompagnato la star sul paco a partire dal 1969).

Betty Davis, la pantera funk

Senza di lei, nessuna Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse né Janelle Monáe! Scomparsa dai riflettori ormai da anni, Betty Davis resta la pioniera delle soul sister feline. La dea funk per eccellenza. E addirittura colei che elettrizzò un certo Miles Davis di cui sarà un’effimera compagna. Ma chi è Betty?

Jimi Hendrix, il cielo non deve più attendere

Nonostante una carriera lampo, Jimi Hendrix ci ha lasciato un’eredità sconfinata di registrazioni. La pubblicazione della nuova raccolta di brani inediti Both Sides Of The Sky ne è una prova ulteriore. Ma cosa si cela dentro questo tesoro?

E i Nirvana uccisero il rock ‘n’ roll

Trentadue anni fa nascevano i Nirvana: la dirotta punk più inattesa del XX secolo. Una carriera stellare, hits internazionali, orde di fan ed un tragico epilogo per questo fenomeno mondiale. E se la band di Kurt Cobain fosse l’ultima nella storia del rock? Il fenomeno di genere definitivo, se non il suo ultimo mito.
