Bonnie Raitt

More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. The release of Souls Alike, her eighteenth album, marks yet another brave, exhilarating step in a legendary body of work.

Born to a musical family, the nine-time Grammy winner is the daughter of celebrated Broadway singer John Raitt (Carousel, Oklahoma!, The Pajama Game) and accomplished pianist/singer Marge Goddard. She was raised in Los Angeles in a climate of respect for the arts, Quaker traditions, and a commitment to social activism. A Stella guitar given to her as a Christmas present launched Bonnie on her creative journey at the age of eight. While growing up, though passionate about music from the start, she never considered that it would play a greater role than as one of her many growing interests.

Bonnie continues to use her influence to affect the way music is perceived and appreciated in the world. In 1988, she co-founded the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, which works to improve royalties, financial conditions, and recognition for a whole generation of R&B pioneers to whom she feels we owe so much. In 1995, she initiated the Bonnie Raitt Guitar Project with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, currently running in 200 clubs around the world, to encourage underprivileged youth to play music as budgets for music instruction in the schools run dry.

Her commitment to the redemptive power of music is expressed in the foreword she wrote to American Roots, the book based on 2001's PBS series of the same name:

"I feel strongly that this appreciation needs to be out there so that black, Latino and all kids can understand the roots of their own musical heritage," she explains. "The consolidation of the music business has made it difficult to encourage styles like the blues, all of which deserve to be celebrated as part of our most treasured national resources."

Bonnie Raitt and Friends, was recorded live at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ on September 30, 2005, ands feature never-before-seen performance and interview footage, including four duets not included in the VH1 Classic broadcast of the concert. With two hours of concert and interview footage, the concert which was filmed in Hi-Definition and is presented in 5.1 audio, features Raitt performing 17 songs with her longtime band - George Marinelli (guitar), James "Hutch" Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums) and Jon Cleary (keyboards). Included are such classic Raitt hits as "Something To Talk About," "Love Letter" (with Mo'), "You" (with Krauss) and a knock-out encore of "Love Sneakin' Up On You" with Raitt, Jones, Harper, Krauss and Mo' as well as highlights from her latest studio album, Souls Alike, including "I Will Not Be Broken," "God Was In The Water", "I Don't Want Anything To Change" (with Jones) and "Unnecessarily Mercenary" (a duet with keyboardist Cleary, who wrote the song). The accompanying CD features 11 tracks, including the radio single "Two Lights In The Nighttime" (featuring Ben Harper).

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Norah Jones, Ben Harper.
Muze PNote This CD/DVD release presents a 2005 concert by Bonnie Raitt in which the revered blues-rock singer/guitarist is joined by a number of high-profile guests. Although the audio portion of the set features fewer tracks than its visual companion, the CD still makes room for appearances by Alison Krauss (the delicate "You"), Ben Harper (the slightly funky "Two Lights in the Nighttime"), and Norah Jones (the gentle "I Don't Want Anything to Change"). One of the most notable highlights of the show, however, is Raitt's duet with her own band's keyboardist/vocalist Jon Cleary on the playful "Unnecessarily Mercenary," which allows Raitt to alternate her stinging six-string lines with groove-laden riffing, and match her wonderfully raspy voice with the soulful singing of Cleary. Also boasting a number of stellar Raitt solo tracks woven into the set list (including the beautifully atmospheric "God Was in the Water"), this offering is a must-have for her devoted fans, and its appeal is only widened by the presence of her well-selected collaborators.
