Tuesday 12am: Feature LP: Marc Cohn & The Blind Boys of Alabama – Work To Do (2019)

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter MARC COHN and gospel titans BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA have announced the August 9th release of WORK TO DO, via BMG. Produced by John Leventhal, the unique collection combines the songwriting talents of Marc Cohn with the soul stirring harmonies of Blind Boys of Alabama and falls on the heels of more than a year of live collaborative dates. WORK TO DO is comprised of three studio tracks by COHN and THE BLIND BOYS, (two originals and a version of the gospel standard “Walking To Jerusalem”) and seven intimate live performances recorded at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, CT, during a taping of the PBS series The Kate, which premiered on May 24th, 2019. Original plans were to release an EP containing the studio tracks, but the excitement and magic captured during the taping inspired the decision to create this unique hybrid album.

The live performances on WORK TO DO feature the Grammy award-winning BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA adding their trademark harmonies and vocal textures to six songs drawn from the breadth of Cohn’s venerable career including the mega-hit, “Walking in Memphis,” “Ghost Train” and “Silver Thunderbird.” THE BLIND BOYS’ striking rearrangement of the traditional hymn “Amazing Grace” completes the collection. Grammy award-winning artist MARC COHN has solidified his place as a highly acclaimed and compelling singer-songwriter, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Hailed as “gospel titans” by Rolling Stone, THE BLIND BOYS first rose to fame in the segregated south with their thrilling vocal harmonies and roof-raising live show. They released their debut single, “I Can See Everybody’s Mother But Mine,” on the iconic Veejay label in 1948, launching a 70-year recording career that would see them rack up five Grammy Awards (plus one for Lifetime Achievement), enter the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, collaborate with everyone from Mavis Staples and Stevie Wonder to Prince and Lou Reed, and perform on the world’s most prestigious stages.

MARC COHN and BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA have announced a string of summer tour dates in support of WORK TO DO beginning in June. This rare combination of the incredible soul of MARC COHN mixed with the stirring vocal harmonies of BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA is a moment not to be missed. (Ctsy Amazon.Com)

Thursday 10pm: Feature LP: Rosanne Cash – She Remembers Everything (2018)

Dreams still beckon in a damaged world, and Rosanne Cash renders them with fierce grace on She Remembers Everything, a studio recording arriving November 2 from Blue Note Records. The follow-up to Cash’s 2014 release The River & the Thread, recipient of 3 Grammys including Best Americana Album, the album offers shimmering pop—with hints of twang and jazz—that could find a home in almost any year of postwar American music. But the luminescence and bright production are shot through with a darker vision, trenchant vocals, minor chords, and bent notes that destabilize the landscape. Familiar yet alien, Cash’s take on being a woman in the world reveals just how much has gone awry.

Closing out the four decades Cash has spent as a recording artist, She Remembers Everything contains echoes of nearly all her previous styles. Listeners familiar with “Seven Year Ache” or Interiors will recognize the knowing ache of this record. Those who listened to recordings and live shows in subsequent years—which have included residencies at the San Francisco Jazz Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Library of Congress—will likewise find the literary voice that has framed her more recent music. Cash’s time focused on roots music also lends a classic form to her songwriting that makes it universal and timeless. – Amazon
