Soul legend Solomon Burke harbored a desire to sing country tunes ever since his early days at Atlantic, but the powers-that-be wouldn't let their golden goose take the gamble. Four decades down the line, he finally got the opportunity, and he embraced it with open arms. Produced by twang titan Buddy Miller, NASHVILLE is the third album of Burke's "comeback" period that began with 2002's DON'T GIVE UP ON ME. NASHVILLE's two predecessors found Burke tackling often ill-fitting tunes by a bevy of rockers, but taking a country turn sounds completely natural for the 66-year-old soul man.
Crucial to this aesthetic success is the fact that Burke and Miller avoided the obvious dusty honky-tonk warhorses. Instead, Burke invests Tom T. Hall's "That's How I Got to Memphis" with stirring pathos, plays the scorned lover on Miller's "Does My Ring Burn Your Finger," and fills Kevin Welch's "Millionaire" with warmth and grit. New tunes written to order by Gillian Welch and Patty Griffin keep things fresh, and guest vocals from Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton keep King Solomon squarely rooted in the NASHVILLE of his dreams.
Artist Overview
While not as widely known as such contemporaries as Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett, Solomon Burke was one of the true pioneers of soul and R&B in the 1950s and 1960s. Gritty and passionate, Burke made music that carried an almost evangelical fervor--fitting for a man once known as the "Wonder Boy Preacher." A major influence on rock & roll, Burke has achieved legendary status after decades of hard work and great, passionate music. In 2006, nearly a half century after his debut, Burke released the critically acclaimed country album NASHVILLE.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.124) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[H]is music is electrifying, one part testament, one part lament."
Entertainment Weekly (p.80) - "[A] country soul tour de force. Burke can rumble through bluesy barn burners, but he thrives on the slow and stately stuff..." -- Grade: A-
Q (p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Spare instrumentation and warm intimacy give Burke's burnt mahogany voice space to breathe..."
Q (p.118) - Ranked #65 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006."
Down Beat (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "When the big man finishes with them, the songs belong to him and are beyond categorizing."
Vibe (p.165) - "It's all tasteful retro treatment for a '60s soul icon, but Burke approaches it with brio -- playing along but not tamed."
Living Blues (p.40) - "[With] a warm, vintage soundscape in which Burke clearly feels at home, and even with all the guests Burke's miraculously expressive voice remains at the center in all its glory."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Burke's new record is entirely devoted to exploring the country idiom, ranging from galloping, fiddle-driven hoe-downs to honky tonk ballads and dustbowl dirges."
