Soulful Music Movie

Dear Reader,

The expert here at diablog on everything soul, music, and movies is Glynsky. At least according to Glynsky.

Since I know little to nothing about Soul and R&B, and according to Glynsky about anything else too, I did some self-education and watched 20 Feet from Stardom a while ago. Yes, the one that won an Oscar this year for best documentary.

Now, this is not a ‘must see movie’. But if you like great voices, it will give you goosebumps a couple of times. Just make sure you are watching the movie – in a theater or at home – with a better than decent sound system.

Two voices stand out, the best is Lisa Fischer, the other one is Janice Pendarvis.

Especially Lisa Fischer is just amazing. Normally I am not too fond of the high register. But this voice is just brilliant. And a pleasure to listen to. Here is a Lisa Fischer tribute, someone put up on YouTube:

Now I am curious, what our ‘expert’ has to say. Probably, I got it all wrong, again.

Enjoying those two voices,

Engine Room

  1. Whats to say?
    Excellent, never heard of her and will have to attend to that.
    I am not a fan of the modern idea of ‘voice aerobics’ (is this an exercise for Mme. to help her knee to full operation?) which always seems a bit contrived to me.
    However, ER, you appear to have made a discovery. Maybe the first since you tried peanut butter at 8 years old.
