Mavis Staples: “You Are Not Alone”

My review of You Are Not Alone— the new, Jeff Tweedy-produced album by Mavis Staples– is posted at CT.

This one just keeps growing in stature and richness the more I listen to it; honestly, I’m ready to call this the best-produced set of music Mavis has recorded, at least in the latter part of her career– and given that she’s worked with names like Joe Henry and Ry Cooder, that’s pretty high praise. She and Tweedy turn out to be not an odd couple pairing, but a match made in gospel music heaven.
