Shine A Light: Elton John and Leon Russell

Either of these artists is deserved of a post by themselves, but I wanted to draw your attention to the tour they are doing together. They seem unlikely to work together, don’t they? I thought so, but surprises like that often bring the richest stuff.

Such is the case. From the songs I’ve heard the tracks are great and vocals really cool. Elton is so strong and clear as a singer, then Leon comes in with that lazy, swampy vibe that is such a compliment to Elton.

I love it when guys like these choose to make great art in the back half of their careers. It’s just cool, that’s all there is to it. Go pick up a copy !
