Let It Rock Review: Cornell CC Carter “Vindicated Soul”

19 Jul

814519022985

“Back to the well of inspiration, San Fran soulster takes time-tested classics for a new spin…there’s a true vindication of largely forgotten gems.”

“Unpredictability may not be your typical R&B artist trait, but Cornell Carter doesn’t dwell on a carpe diem disposition of “In The Moment”and looks back to move forward. A covers collection, “Vindicated Soul” is a snapshot of the singer’s adventures in deep cuts perfectly capturing the spirit of mid-’70s Motor City music, yet there’s a contemporary shimmer on these timeless tracks.

Without muddling it in a melismatic manner, CC concentrates on emotional expression that’s stripped of sentimental tinsel and is sincere enough to seep into the listener’s psyche, and his take on “How Can I Get Next To You” could challenge CHAPTER 8’s original in enchanting stakes, whereas Willie Hutch’s “Brother’s Gonna Work It Out” and SLAVE’s “Watching You” open a street-smart perspective to Carter’s cinematic delivery of tribal funk. Name-checking his heroes in short intro, Cornell creates a concept of sorts and allows the songs’ flow to carefully carry their message, from the silky “All The Way Around” to “Look What You’ve Done For Me” in a way Messrs Gaye and Green would approve of: with a grain of grit rubbing against seductive vocals.

CC might be a tad too respectful to the source sometimes, yet he totally appropriates it, that’s why there’s a true vindication of the largely forgotten gems.”

Music in Belgium Review: Cornell CC Carter “Vindicated Soul” (translated)

21 Jun

814519022985

“As the title of the album suggests, we are immersed in the atmosphere of soul music, with an American artist who takes great standards of the genre by traveling between neo-soul, R & B, disco and fresh- Contemporary jazz. Recorded in various studios in San Francisco, Cornell CC Carter, who started his career in 1996 and who was awarded the UK Bright Award twenty years later , pays tribute to the illustrious musicians and composers of soul, funk and even gospel. Proposed in a more contemporary remix while respecting the spirit of all these great black American currents and artists, the songs refer to icons such as Marvin Gaye , Leon Ware , Willie Hutch or Al Green , not to mention a Barry White intro .

Accompanied by international musicians such as Meleccio Magdaluyo (saxophone), Niecey Robinson (chorus), Ernest McKone (organ and keyboards ) and Kirk “KC” Crumpher (drums, bass, organ and keyboards ), Cornell offers a collection of songs Rhythm and vocals are of course essential to transcribe the soul or funky spirit. Starting from fathers like James Brown or Ray Charles , he sprinkles his work from the ” The atmosphere of formations like The Temptations or Kool and The Gang , not to mention Natalie Cole or even Michael Jackson .

Having finally worked with such luminaries as Neil Schon (Journey) or Dionne Warwick , he is also joining the services of the great Carlos Santana , in an album where he proves his great professionalism and great vocal abilities. Concerning the transmission of the timeless spirit of these great musical movements (soul music, funk or jazz), Cornel CC Carter fulfilled his task of offering to all those who love these tempos hot and chaloupés, By producing a collection that is both faithful and modernist, which transpires the imprint of all the great artists mentioned in this chronicle.”

SoulWalking Review: Cornell CC Carter “Vindicated Soul”

14 Jun

814519022985

Cornell C.C. Carter, might best be described as an artist with ‘old school sensibilities’. ‘Vindicated Soul’ was released on the 19th of May, on this San Francisco based singers own label. I think, all told, that C.C. and many Soul Music fans have very similar tastes in music. For instance, one of my absolute favourite Marvin Gaye songs, ‘All The Way Around’, is featured here in a beautiful re-interpretation, which takes nothing away from the brilliant original, but carefully relocates the song into 2017. Leon Ware must have kicked himself, when he handed over that album to Marvin, however, the finished product marked a superb addition to both of the late men’s C.V.’s. Cornel rework’s two Willie Hutch compositions, namely ‘Brother’s Gonna Work It Out’ and ‘I Choose You’, very competently, and I was delighted to hear an old Chapter 8 tune, which I don’t think I have ever heard, covered by an artist, in the form of ‘How Can I Get Next To You’ (penned by the late Patrick Moten). That was originally featured on the group’s ‘This Love Is For Real’ album back in 1985. There are further covers of an Al Green tune (‘Look What You Done for Me’), along with some Cornel originals, including the fine ‘Where Do We Go’, which I featured in the site chart a few months ago. Musically, the line-up features Melecio Magdaluyo (from the Pete Escovedo Orchestra), along with the U.K.’s very own Ernie McKone (brother of Vivienne). A very worthy release indeed, and a very welcome choice of material as well. Highly recommended.”
