Justin Townes Earle, son of Steve Earle with a most significant middle name, did not trouble himself with doubts, as record after record, he firmly staked out an identity of his own, never trying to fight against his weighty patronym. Quiet. Cool. Unassuming ... with their mix of vintage rock 'n' roll, gritty blues, street folk and alternative country, his eight albums shaped a career rooted in false nonchalance and solid writing. And whether he was referring to his run-down country and its left-behind folk or his own soul, weathered with its own addictions, Earle Jr. sang with a sincerity that got you in the gut... in August 2020, everything abruptly stopped. A fatal overdose carried him away at just 38. Six months later, his illustrious father dedicated an entire album to his repertoire. An opus from which the income will be donated to a fund intended for Etta, Justin Townes's 3-year-old daughter. Ten covers (including the hits Harlem River Blues, Far Away in Another Town and Champagne Corolla) that must resonate painfully for their performer. "This record is called J.T. because he was never called anything else until he was nearly grown. Well, when he was little, I called him Cowboy... For better or worse, right or wrong, I loved Justin Townes Earle more than anything else on this earth.  That being said, I made this record, like every other record I’ve ever made… for me. It was the only way I knew to say goodbye.Supported by The Dukes (Chris Masterson, Eleanor Whitmore, Ricky Ray Jackson, Jeff Hill and Brad Pemberton), this father could not have made a more beautiful tribute: everything here has been done to underscore the strength of the son's writing. No tears, no self-pity, just songs written down straight and the father's chiselled voice that makes them even more timeless. This enthusiastic celebration of a life lived with passion, however, closes on a heart-breaking note with Last Words. It is the only original song on J. T. and it was composed by Steve Earle for his son. An intense track that opens with I was there when you were born and closes with Your last words to me were I love you too. Breath-taking. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
The Pioneers of Rock’n’Roll

Rock’n’roll isn’t dead. But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. They’re 84 and 82. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll. Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Going from Little Richard to Chuck Berry, not forgetting Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams, Qobuz pays tribute to the precursors of rock.

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?
