07-04-2019 12:00:00 07-04-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Sock it to Me: A Classic Rhythm & Blues Revue with Amy Black Brunch at The Loft - 4/7 | 11:30AM DOORS / 12:30PM START Join Nashville-based songstress and songwriter Amy Black for a soulful evening of classic and original music by Etta James, Al Green, Wilson Pickett, Mavis Staples, Otis Redding, Ann Peebles, Albert King, Bobby "Blue" Bland and many others. Amy Black has always been drawn to soul singers. But it wasn't until she began exploring her own southern soul roots for her third album, The Muscle Shoals Sessions, that she found her musical sweet spot — and knew her next stop had to be the place where blues and soul converge (and where she herself was conceived); where Al Green, Otis Redding and so many others turned grit and groove into some of the world's most beloved tunes. Black then hunted down several top musical architects to help her lay down the sound she was meant to make — the sound of Memphis. Her new album, Memphis, puts Black — already considered "a bluesy, R&B heavy hitter" by Elmore magazine — on the same continuum as soul sisters from Dusty Springfield, Ann Peebles and Mavis Staples to Bonnie Raitt and Shelby Lynne. The players on the album include members of the Hi Records and Stax rhythm sections who played on all of Al Green's albums. Infusing her vocals with Saturday-night sultriness and Sunday-morning gospel, slow-dance sexiness and fast-dance exuberance, Black goes from silky smooth to raw and rough with equal ease. The result is pure and authentic —and she wouldn't have it any other way. Black says she hopes her albums Memphis & The Muscle Shoals Sessions inspire listeners to dig into this music as she has, and to explore "the history, the people, the stories" of these fabled place. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359174 City Winery City Winery
