Billy Bragg “January Song”
from Tooth & Nail (Cooking Vinyl 2013) —35. This album showed up on a few best of lists, including DJ Rob Levy. Bragg's show at the Old Rock House was one of the most memorable of the year.
Gregory Porter “Movin'”
from Liquid Spirit (Blue Note 2013) —34. Bill Withers meets jazz Lou Rawls on this excellent release. Featuring Yosuke Sato and Tivon Pennicott, saxophones; Chip Crawford, piano; Aaron James, bass, Emanuel Harrold, drums.
Grace Basement “Water Flowing Over a Mountain”
from Wheel Within A Wheel (Avonmore 2013) L —22. Not counting Son Volt's "Honky Tonk," this is pretty easily the most accomplished record to come out of St. Louis this year.
Mavis Staples “What Are They Doing In Heaven Today”
from One True Vine (Anti- 2013) —6. Such a pleasure to see Mavis, live and charismatic, at the Blues and Heritage Fest this past year.
Dawes “Something In Common”
from Stories Don't End (HUB Records 2013) —5. This band put on my favorite show of 2013 at Off Broadway, and a record of well-told, quotidian stories.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
