Mighty Sam McClain

Time and Change - Last recordings AlbumPurchased

Mighty Sam McClains testamente Han var amerikansk soul-legende og norsk spellemannprisvinner etter sin død. Hans siste opptak kommer ut på CD i juni Et unikt samarbeid med iranske Mahsa Vahdat, Kirkelig Kulturverksted og Knut Reiersrud gjorde at den amerikanske soul-legenden Mighty Sam McClains siste plateutgivelser fikk et hjem i Norge. Den 15.juni – på dagen ett år etter hans død - kommer CD’en “Time and Change - Last recordings” på Kirkelig Kulturverksted. Her fremfører MIghty Sam 10 egne låter pluss én skrevet av hans mentor Melvin Underwood. Albumet er produsert av sangeren selv i samarbeid med mangeårig sparringspartner, multi-instrumentalisten Pat Herlehy. Bandet består av musikere som Mighty Sam turnerte med i USA og Tyskland de siste årene av sitt liv. Foruten Pat Herlehy på gitarer, bass, sax og keyboards deltar bl.a. Michael Rossi på el-bass, Rick Page på trommer, Joe Deleault på keyboards og B3. I en nekrolog på omslaget hevder Knut Reiersrud at Mighty Sam McClain gjennom 5 tiår leverte noen av de mest majestetiske vokalprestasjoner i bluesens og soulmusikkens historie. Han var en av de få som maktet å bringe ”deep soul” inn i det 21. Århundre. I 2015 fikk de to sammen Spellemannprisen for platen ”Tears of the world”. Selv hevder Mighty Sam at han og Pat Herlehy brukte 12 år på å produsere “Time and Change” før den ble ferdigstilt like før han døde: - ”It is funky, silky soul, blues and gospel. So listen up, everybody, this is good!!! We hope you enjoy the ride”! I 2009 inviterte Erik Hillestad i Kirkelig Kulturverksted Mighty Sam McClain til et samarbeid med den iranske sangerinnen Mahsa Vahdat. På den platen de lagde sammen; ”Scent of Reunion - love duets across civilizations” var Knut Reiersrud bandleder, og slik innledet Mighty Sam et 7 år langt samarbeid med Norge og norske musikere med Reiersrud i spissen. Nå utgir Kirkelig Kulturverksted hans siste testamente – på dagen ett år etter hans død.
