Ruthie Foster – Stone Love

A gospel soul filled Thursday is empowered b the band Ruthie put together, complete with horns and backup singers filling my ears with a precious stax experience. “You see, your worries, they’ll be alright.” Amen. The stax party continues with Thanks For The Joy, which is sure to be a live crowd pleaser; but works well for me as I prepare my thoughts for Valentine’s Day. “I forgot to give thanks for the joy of living my life with you!” The song works beautifully on two levels, an artist singing to her audience, and a lover singing to their loved one. Excellent deep south home cooking by the band! Thanks for the joy you’ve filled me with this evening! Ruthie Foster
