If You Love Women Who Sing, You’ll Love
|Concord Records is celebrating Black History with a new compilation featuring some of our favorite female singers.
Every year during the month of February, Concord selects great performances from African American artists and puts out a tribute CD. But this year it will carry over into Women’s History month in March because of the talented women on display in this collection. Included are Shirley Brown, The Emotions, Carla Thomas, The Staple Singers, Irma Thomas and the late Teena Marie, even though she’s not technically African American. Also look out for stand-out performances by Esperanza Spalding, who not only rocks the bass but also has the voice of an angel; Lalah Hathaway, who sounds so much like her late father, Donny, that it’s scary; and world-class drummer Terri Lynn Carrington with song stylist Cassandra Wilson, whose voice is like warm honey. It’s “Soul Sisters: A Black History Month Celebration” on Concord Records. Put it on and let it play!
