Product Description

On her sixth album So Good, So Right: Nicole Henry LIVE, Henry demonstrates her gift for sublime interpretation as well as her love for the emotionally tinged soul, pop and rock songs that were staples of the 1970s. The 13-track live album, which was recorded at Henry s sold-out performances at Feinstein s in NYC in May 2012, showcases her soulful, inspired interpretations of some of her favorite classic hits of the decade from iconic artists including Bill Withers, Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, The Commodores and Gladys Knight.

Review

While watching the singer Nicole Henry go through her paces at Feinstein s at Loews Regency on Tuesday evening, I had the sense of being in the presence of a pop-soul superwoman whose every gesture and inflection conveyed confidence and mastery.

Her singing is as a sleek and shapely as her perfectly chiseled arms. As she tossed her hair, she recalled the younger Carly Simon girding for world conquest.

Her show, So Good, So Right, is an anthology of 1970s pop and soul, from Joni Mitchell to Aretha Franklin to Bob Marley. Scanning the set list I wondered what she could possibly bring that was new to Ms. Mitchell s Big Yellow Taxi, or Bill Withers s Use Me. But time and again she invested familiar songs with an extra fillip of conviction and made you reconsider the words. Her band (Kevin Hays on piano, Adam Rogers on guitar, Vicente Archer on bass and Clarence Penn on drums) percolated unobtrusively.

The Stealers Wheel hit Stuck in the Middle With You, whose original version seemed content to clone the sound of the Beatles, became a pointed expression of paranoid discomfort felt by a performer surrounded by sycophants. Big Yellow Taxi took on an extra edge of exasperation at the way we blithely take valuable things for granted.

Use Me built steadily in intensity, so that its title phrase became a repeated cry of ecstasy during lovemaking. If her Spirit in the Dark smoothed out the raw gospel edges of Ms. Franklin s matchless original, it still emanated from deep within and had it own majestic arch.

The show reminded me that the oft-maligned decade Ms. Henry was saluting was the twilight of the well-made song, before MTV turned pop music into a flesh and fashion parade, and technological innovation hardened its sound.

The evening suggested that Ms. Henry, who was a child during the 70s, may have been born in the wrong decade. Based in Miami Beach with frequent performances in New York, she has enjoyed some success, but the fact that she is over 30 and not a niche artist is an obvious career hindrance. How many other worthy talents face the same obstacles? --Stephen Holden of The New York Times

Being a person who grew up listening to many of these tunes, I have always loved the music of the 1970s. I believe that the decade is underrated musically due largely to the great music made during the 1960s, but the 70s showed a particular strength in terms of musical variety musicianship, lyricism and the overall quality of performers. And while nothing can substitute for the originals, you don t have to lower your expectations to enjoy listening to a master interpreter such as Henry rework these classics. --Howard Dukes of Soul Music

If Henry had been around in the 70's, she would have given Gladys Knight and Aretha Franklin a run for their money. She has a powerful and sultry voice, and I loved the song choices.

The opening song Stuck in the Middle With You is a song I can remember my mom singing, it was her favorite and a great way to open the CD. Gladys Knight got a shout-out with Henry's soulful rendition of Neither One of Us.

Although known as a jazz/R&B singer, Henry puts her spin on some pop songs too, including Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi, James Taylor's Fire & Rain and a plaintive Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word by Elton John.

Home Alone, Bob Marley's Waiting in Vain and a gospel-tinged Spirit in the Dark that would have made Aretha proud. The soulful Use Me is a highlight as well.

Henry's last song is of my favorite 70's songs, Stevie Nicks' Landslide, which the Dixie Chicks also had a hit with a few years back. I adored Henry's take on this song, maybe even more than Nicks' version.

If you enjoy jazz, R&B and 70's music, I can't recommend Nicole Henry's So Good, So Right enough. Recording it live at Feinstein's allows us to hear Henry's stage banter, and you feel like your right there down front, but there is no minimum drink charge.

Nicole has a fantastic voice. I can listen to her all day long. We are lucky because we also get to see her live in Miami. If you really want to be blown away. See her live at Christmas and she will melt your heart with Christmas songs.
