Aaron Neville – My True Story

Blue Note Records

Aaron Neville may be turning 72 this year, but you’d never know it by his voice. Sounding as smooth and silky and soulful as ever, Neville leads an all-star band of players through 12 tracks of luscious doo-wop goodness on his new album My True Story – an album guaranteed to put the rama-lama-ding-dong and the ooh-mau-mau back into your smile.

The doo-wop setting is a natural one for Neville, whether he’s laying it down to a New Orleans groove on “Work With Me Annie”, letting “Gypsy Woman” sway in the moonlight, breaking your heart with “Tears On My Pillow”, or getting playful with the slow bump of “Ting A Ling”. Co-produced by Blue Note president Don Was and Keith Richards, My True Story sounds just exactly like what it was: a legend having fun.
