She Remembers Everything

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Auf ihrem Blue-Note-Album perfektioniert Rosanne Cash ihre ganz eigene Musikfarbe: ausgefeilten Folk-Pop, gewürzt mit der genau richtigen Dosis “Twang” und Jazz. Co-Autoren ihrer neuen Songs sind ihr Ehemann John Leventhal, Tucker Martine, der schon mit Mavis Staples, Bill Frisell und R.E.M. arbeitete, sowie T Bone Burnett. Als Gäste lud Cash u.a. Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson und Sam Phillips ins Studio. Ihr erstes Album seit vier Jahren überzeugt vor allem auch durch ihre Stimme, die mit den Jahren immer ausdrucksstärker wurde, und ein zeitloses, inhaltsschweres Songwriting, das Bestand haben wird. Ganz in der Tradition der Familie Cash. Das Vorgängeralbum „The River And The Thread“ bezeichnete die FAZ seinerzeit als „das beste, das sie je gemacht hat.“ Das neue Werk von Rosanne Cash dürfte diese Aussage veralten lassen.

Dreams still beckon in a damaged world, and Rosanne Cash renders them with fierce grace on She Remembers Everything, a studio recording arriving November 2 from Blue Note Records. The follow-up to Cash’s 2014 release The River & the Thread, recipient of 3 Grammys including Best Americana Album, the album offers shimmering pop—with hints of twang and jazz—that could find a home in almost any year of postwar American music. But the luminescence and bright production are shot through with a darker vision, trenchant vocals, minor chords, and bent notes that destabilize the landscape. Familiar yet alien, Cash's take on being a woman in the world reveals just how much has gone awry.
Closing out the four decades Cash has spent as a recording artist, She Remembers Everything contains echoes of nearly all her previous styles. Listeners familiar with "Seven Year Ache" or Interiors will recognize the knowing ache of this record. Those who listened to recordings and live shows in subsequent years—which have included residencies at the San Francisco Jazz Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Library of Congress—will likewise find the literary voice that has framed her more recent music. Cash's time focused on roots music also lends a classic form to her songwriting that makes it universal and timeless.
