One of my favorite female voices is surely Joss Stone’s. All that she transmits is just pure love and passion for music and I think this is more than enough. What is more, she does so with intelligence and a superb elegance, and all her works demonstrate this.
With her latest album she achieved what I mean for musical perfection. The Soul Sessions Vol. 2, released in July 2012, consists of 11 cover versions magically interpreted both in singing, but also made to perfection by the musicians who worked at her side. What you can find in this record is the energy and funk of “(For God’s Sake) Give more power to the people” and “Stoned out of my mind” (both originally recorded by The Chi-Lites) or the sweetness of “Pillow Talk” and “The Love We Had (Stays on My Mind) “. In one word you’ll find tons of Soul and probably yours too!
This live version played at the Highline Ballroom in New York on June 20, 2012, will better explain my love for this work.
