My True Story
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Blue Note Records
Aaron Neville's first album in four years finds him remembering the doo-wop sounds of his youth. With help from co-producers Don Was and Keith Richards, and a backing band that includes Benmont Tench from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, he interprets these classics as softly swaying adult contemporary soul. He doesn't change them much as far as arrangements, and that's fine -- with a perfect song like the Impressions' "Gypsy Woman," it's better to leave it as is. A particular highlight arrives on his version of the Jive Five's "My True Story," which soars on his indelible falsetto voice.
