For Aaron Neville, the impact of Hurricane Katrina could only be expressed through music, specifically on songs that are uplifting, meaningful, and close to the heart. Bring It on Home…The Soul Classics is about recovery: a positive response not only to the natural disaster of the hurricane, but undoubtedly to the blasé attitude about it from the federal government. Tragedy can bring out the best in people, and Neville’s disc not only aims to deal with his personal pain, but specifically reaches out to those who survived the storm the best way he knows how. These songs are familiar enough to deliver the listener a sense of warmth which hopefully opens the door to healing, grace, and power. Out of the 13 tracks, four are duets: with Mavis Staples on “Respect Yourself,” Chaka Khan on “Let’s Stay Together,” brother Art Neville with David Sanborn for “People Get Ready,” and Chris Botti on “Rainy Night in Georgia.” Katrina’s aftermath found other musicians reaching out to their audience as well, musicians who have created a few painfully triumphant releases like Dr. John & the Lower 911’s Sippiana Hericane, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band’s reworking of Marvin Gaye’s 1971 album What’s Goin’ On, and the various artists who contributed to Our New Orleans: A Benefit Album for the Gulf Coast. It’s safe to say Aaron Neville’s Bring it on Home…The Soul Classics should be added to that list.
