Al GreenJazz & Heritage Festival | New Orleans, Louisiana | 2012
“In that room that day, in California, He saved me.” Badly burned by a girlfriend, Al Green gave up the star system to devote himself to “the Savior,” “the Lord.” In his church, in Memphis, when he strikes up a hymn, the Reverend still climbs high in the sky as his voice rises in the treble. The singer’s appearances are rare today. Sadly. His medleys are like reading a chart: Let’s Stay Together, You Are so Beautiful, Tired of Being Alone, Love and Happiness... all with the same incredible moans.
