Lou Rawls: vocals

Singer Lou Rawls’ unique style is ageless, encompassing Soul, Jazz, R&B, and Pop in a fashion that is always true to its roots, yet rewardingly contemporary. This special DVD is packed full of the belting blues, beautiful ballads, soulful demeanor, and glorious gospel that has established Rawls as one of the premiere voices of the past 4 decades.

This historic performance also includes the larger-than-life Duke Ellington on two selections and the impeccable voice of Freda Payne (singer of the hit song “Band of Gold”) on two others. When Rawls and Freda Payne lead a chorus on “Oh, Happy Day,” you feel just how joyous it is. Witnessing the legendary Duke Ellington playing his standards “Satin Doll” and “Sophisticated Lady,” with Rawls’ precious vocal interpretation adding a new dimension, only helps us to see why the Ellington genius is so timeless.
