One can quibble about packaging and marketing decisions regarding this music, but not the music itself. Sure, it is a little phony to see Merle Haggard dressed up like a hard-hat worker on the front, and making a joke about him leaving his lunchbox behind on the back certainly will bring to mind the line about someone being a couple of sandwiches short of a box lunch. And then there's the stupid note about the problems of the working man signed by "the girls at the office." The country fan would have been much better served by a list of the pickers on the album, because the playing is simply impeccable. This is one of this country legend's well thought-out combinations of hardcore traditional material from Hank Williams and the Delmore Brothers, combined with his own brilliant songwriting from some of his tried and true perspectives, such as the lonely loser of "The Running Kind" or the bittersweet, moderate beer drinking narrator of the title tune. Riding high on the success of the tongue-in-cheek "Okie From Muskogee," Haggard appears comfortable in his role as a philosopher, going way out on a limb on "I'm a White Boy," but, suprisingly enough, the limb doesn't break and he is home free. The hard to count highlights include the charming tribute to Lefty Frizzell, made up almost entirely of lines from his songs, "Blues for Lefty." Backup is simply credited to the Strangers, and it sounds like a well-recorded distillation of one of their typical sets, plenty of twangy picking with a bit of jazzy horns thrown in. There's a cliche about music being so good it goes by really quickly, but in this case not only sheer genius but a total running length of about 24 minutes contribute to this phenomenon.

Merle Haggard, der Bösewicht der Country Music

Alkohol, Gefängnis, Drogen, Misere. Merle Haggard kannte sich bei allen gut aus und sang sein Leben lang über Amerika mit seinen Außenseitern und Zukurzgekommenen. Er, der den Bakersfield Sound bekannt machte, läuterte die Country Music, weil er seine Aussage noch beißender machen wollte.

10 Songs mit Norah Jones

Auch wenn ihre Alben beim Label Blue Note erscheinen, war Norah Jones nie eine reine Jazzkünstlerin. Seit Anfang der 2000er Jahre hat die amerikanische Sängerin und Pianistin immer alles getan, um stilistische Grenzen zugunsten ihrer eigenen staatenlosen Musik zu verwischen oder gar zu beseitigen, die sie gerne mit anderen Musikern unterschiedlicher Herkunft teilt. Eine kurze Rundfahrt durch ihre Welt in 10 Songs.

Ray Charles im Wandel seines Stils

Ray Charles, der Gründervater der Soulmusik, dessen Karriere ein halbes Jahrhundert andauerte, lässt sich nicht mit einer Handvoll Hits zusammenfassen, die jeder kennt. Er ist vor allem ein Meister des musikalischen Crossover, der High-End-Variante, die aus der Vermischung von Genres eine Kunst macht, indem sie sich dem einen annähert, um das andere besser zu erschließen. Ray Charles säkularisierte den Gospel, bereicherte den Blues, spielte Jazz, sang Country und kam dem Rock'n'Roll nahe. Ein Blick auf seinen einzigartigen Stil anhand der fünf genannten Genres.
