Stax Records Soul Revue feat. William Bell, N´Dambi & The Soul Children
southern & modern soul
Memphis soul means bluesy soulfulness, majestic melodies, passionate singing and a lean & funky sound, where the spaces between notes
count as much as the played notes. Stax Records Soul Revue offers the best musicians and two dynamite singers: William Bell from the original
roster, the new Stax- artist N’Dambi and The Soul Children.
Memphis-born William Bell first sang R&B in the Del Rios, then studied medicine, but all changed when he signed with the young
Stax/Volt label, whose soon-to-be legendary style he helped to define with songs he sang and songs he wrote for others. Self-sung You
Don’t Miss Your Water and Everybody Loves A Winner and Born Under A Bad Sign, performed by Albert King and Cream and written with Booker
T, hit the charts first, later Any Other Way, Never Like This Before and many others followed. His songs have been covered by Otis Redding,
Rod Stewart and Billy Idol, and they have been sampled by countless rappers. The ever active and productive Bell’s latest album to hit
the southern soul charts is 2006’s New Lease On Life.
N’Dambi from Dallas, Tx, started as a backing singer for Erykah Badu (and visited Pori Jazz Festival in 2001 with her), but now she
has already three albums of her own: Little Lost Girls Blues, Tunin’ Up & Cosignin’ and A Weird Kinda Wonderful. She cites
Nina Simone, Bette Davis and Janis Joplin as her inspirations.
The Soul Children offer the ongoing essence of (Memphis) soul: heartfelt performance paired to rhythm and a thrilling blend of gospel
