Faye Webster's songs are direct lines to the human subconscious, and Underdressed at the Symphony documents what happens once you begin to build a new self from the ashes of your old routines. This rebirth isn't flashy or definitive, but is instead a series of seemingly mundane moments that, scattered across weeks and months, sneak their way toward something like healing. Yes, there's a breakup in play, but Webster is not documenting the heartbreak of a breakup so much as she's navigating the contours of heartbreak itself. Recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Texas with her longtime band, Webster is accompanied on Underdressed at the Symphony by Matt Stoessel's arcs of shimmering pedal steel, the plaintive, unhurried drums of Charles Garner, and, occasionally, additional guitarwork from Wilco's Nels Cline. The title of the album refers to Webster's post-breakup compulsion to visit the symphony on a whim, usually buying a ticket at the last possible second.

Afro-Cuban star Daymé Arocena releases her new album Alkemi released via Brownswood Recordings. It is her first album since Sonocardiogram in 2019. When Daymé decided to switch gears and record her fourth studio album in Puerto Rico with the iconic producer Eduardo Cabra (Calle 13), she never imagined that she would end up moving there. From the cosmopolitan smoothness of lead single “Suave y Pegao” – an effortless fusion of jazz, bossa nova and urbano stylings with reggaeton star Rafa Pabön on guest vocals – to the smoldering neo-soul of “A Fuego Lento,” with Dominican singer Vicente García, Daymé’s latest album relies on sacred formats of the past but rearranges them in a conscious quest to redraw the very definition of what Latin pop is supposed to sound like.

Directed by Southern California–based minister and radio show host Rev. Willie Bernard Avant, Jr., the St. James Gospel Choir’s sound isn’t far removed from the sound of gospel in the American South. Likely a holdover from Avant’s upbringing in Pierce County, Georgia, as well as his years studying in Florida at Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University. It was at the latter institution where he met his soon-to-be wife, Dolly, who is granted a frequent spotlight as a soloist on the St. James Gospel Choir’s album.

Before his songs would be incorporated in the creation of Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” and before being charged with encouraging his members to participate in a pyramid scheme, Rev. T.L. Barnett, Jr., was riding the rippling momentum of his 1971 debut album ahead of a 1973 release on Gospel Truth. On “I Found the Answer,” Barrett boasts that in his Youth for Christ Choir he’s “made something from nothing,” finding his own talent for music without any formal training and harnessing his leadership enough to shepherd a sprawling, young choir to success in the recording industry.

Genre: Blues, Soul, Funk, R&B

As the title suggests, this is the definitive edition of Etta James' Tell Mama long-player. For this single-disc release the original album is augmented with five previously unissued tracks – documented during James' four Muscle Shoals sessions circa '67-'68. The question of why a rural Alabama town became a conduit for some of the most memorable and instantly identifiable grooves may still be up for debate. The evidence exists in droves and Tell Mama could certainly be considered exhibit A. These sessions feature the same impact that would redirect several first ladies of soul. Notable among them are Dusty Springfield's Dusty in Memphis, Aretha Franklin's I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You) and to somewhat lesser acclaim, Jackie DeShannon's Jackie. Tell Mama showcases some of the unique and admittedly darker qualities of what might best be described as R&B noir. "I'd Rather Go Blind," "Steal Away," "I'm Gonna Take What He's Got" all exemplify the essence of the blues – making the best of a bad situation. The flipside of the sombre subject matter is the satisfying conviction in the music – which is where the remastering becomes particularly noticeable. No longer does the brass section sound alternately muffled or harsh as it has on previous releases. Likewise, the churning Hammond B-3 organ swells with rich textures. Perhaps the most sonically evident improvements are the subtle ones, such as the supple fretwork on "Sweet Dreams," "I'd Rather Go Blind," and the jazzy percussive shuffle of "The Same Rope."

“Assisted by the Fenkell Avenue Baptist Church Congregation & Choir” might seem like an odd addendum for Reverend Lee Jackson’s 1971 release “At Calvary,” as congregations aren’t often billed as performers on records. But the stray, echoing hums of churchgoers, calling out in testimony in concert with Jackson during this sermon, render mention of the members of the church necessary.
