Description
Before Lizz Wright was an international jazz star, she was a minister's daughter from Georgia, and this uplifting disc hews close to home with ten gospel-tinged numbers. With simple arrangements built around guitar, piano, and upright bass, Wright's voice shines in all its glory on "Barley," "Grace," "Stars Fell on Alabama," Allen Toussaint's "Southern Nights," and Bob Dylan's 1981 "Every Grain of Sand," while she picks up the pace for the gospel standard "Singing in My Soul" and Ray Charles's "What Would I Do Without You." It's all first-rate material here, but the best songs might just be Wright's own "All the Way Here" or her blissful cover of k.d. lang's "Wash Me Clean."

"The sound of [this disc] is live and immediate—from the crackling, finger-popping groove that underscores 'Barley,' a hymn of strength written by up-and-coming band Bird of Chicago, to the tight, swinging take on Sister Rosetta Tharpe's 'Singing in My Soul.' Elsewhere on the album, Ray Charles's 'What Would I Do Without You' is plucked from its late-night gloom and transformed into a snappy, confident shuffle."—Slant Magazine
