Both nostalgic and forward-thinking, Southern Soul embraces all manner of music from the African-American experience: from blues and 1960s-era Deep Soul to modern neosoul and hip-hop. Profiling veteran artists such as Denise LaSalle, the late J. Blackfoot, Latimore, and Bobby Rush--as well as other contemporary artists T. K. Soul, Ms. Jody, Sweet Angel, Willie Clayton, and Sir Charles Jones, David's book seeks to offer a comprehensive take on a movement that edged against faith, race, and place while simultaneously making America swing and shake.
"In this enlightening account of a neglected musical genre, Whiteis profiles some of the genre's leading artists, explores the evolution of modern soul-blues, and insists that soul-blues represents a 'further continuum' of the blues tradition."--Booklist
