Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A person can use up all the applicable superlatives on recent Charles Brown titles such as All My Life, One More for the Road, Blues and Other Love Songs, and Someone to Love. That series of recordings established Brown, who's career dates back to the '40s, as less a admired senior statesman than the most consistently engaging bluesman of the '90s, age be damned. Brown's latest release is every bit the treasure the aforementioned albums are. The centerpiece of the 10-track collection remains Brown, whose deft and regal phrasing is framed by his own expert piano as well as the full ensemble (guitarist Danny Caron, saxophonist Clifford Soloman, bassist Ruth Davies, and drummer Gaylord Birch) that supports him on stage. In addition, producer Ron Levy has brought strings and horns into the mix without robbing the recording of too much intimacy. --Steve Stolder

Biography

“Driftin' Blues,” “Black Night,” “Merry Christmas Baby” - these are but a few of Charles Brown's recordings that topped the R&B charts in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Charles Brown's mellow, sophisticated brand of blues was tailor-made for postwar Los Angeles nightclub audiences, who found it a refreshing contrast to the aggressive blues ...

Format: Audio CD
Charles Brown was a true gentleman and an amazing performer, whose CDs always featured remarkably sophisticated, smooth, classy songs that clearly gravitated toward the jazzy side of the blues. Perhaps his sophistication even bars one from calling it blues, but blues it is. This CD was one of the several few he recorded before his death in the late 90s (all of them terrific), but it shows no signs of aging! This man remained on top of his game right up to the end of his life, still underappreciated or relatively undiscovered, and this CD is a clear indication of his level of musicianship. Whenever I play it, it brings me joy and fulfilment and makes me admire the beauty with which Charles Brown executed his songs.

It's also clear from this CD what a piano master he was: he launches into cascades of complicated chords with amazing virtuosity and wouldn't smear a note doing it. Just listen to "I Stepped in Quicksand" - this CD contains perhaps the most exuberant, vibrant version of this song.

The trademark tune that he penned back in the 40s, which brought him intial fame, "Driftin' Blues", is also on this disc and is performed in full glory. It punctuates Mr. Brown's attention to detail in performance and the organic rapport with the band.

As if Brown's playing wasn't already a spotlight-stealer, his vocals are also gorgeous: soulful, sophisticated, precise, and just dripping with romance and life experience. I can picture him singing over a smile that seemed ever-present on his face.

In my opinion, just "Driftin' Blues" and "I Stepped in Quicksand" are worth the CD price, but pretty much every song is excellent with varied feel, so there are no negative comments I can offer about this disc, and I am a very picky listener.
