To the general good of the universe, Etta James was still going strong in 2006. ALL THE WAY is miles removed from the gritty, bluesy R&B James is best known for, and with its lush arrangements, smooth grooves, and dinner club vibe, the album is anything but raw. But none of this is to say that James has lost her touch; her voice is still expressive, rough-hewn, and passion-filled.
James shows her familiarity with late-20th century pop here, offering renditions of John Lennon's "Imagine," Prince's "Purple Rain," Simply Red's "Holding Back the Years," and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On." The choice of material may seem a bit obvious, but James imbues each song with her world-weary grace. And with the mark of a true singing genius, she makes each song sound like a standard written solely for her.
