Joss Stone – The Soul Sessions
This wasn’t supposed to be the world’s first taste of Joss Stone. We just got lucky. As Joss was preparing to record what was supposed to be her debut album, she was introduced to some of the legends whose classic records she loved: The “Clean Up Woman” Miss Betty Wright, Timmy “Why Can’t We Live Together” Thomas, Willie “Little Beaver” Hale, and Latimore, whose single “Let’s Straighten It Out” still ranks as a peak of the sultry 70s soul.
Release dates be dammed, Joss put her own songs on hold in favour of spending some time in the studio with those architects of the Miami Soul sound. From there she ended up in Philadelphia with the masterminds of contemporary soul and R&B, The Roots.
What started out as a side project grew into an obsession for everyone involved.
Complete in only four days, The Soul Sessions is a collection of classics and little-known soul gems alongside some contemporary tracks re-interpreted by Joss and her titanic band of accomplices.
