Unlike Aretha Franklin, she doesn’t have a big, commanding voice. But just as some actors are able to do as much (or more) with less, so, too, with singers. And when it comes to expressing heartache and vulnerability, a voice that’s smaller, less powerful isn’t necessarily a liability—it can be a strength.

(Yeah, I posted this last clip before, when Willie Mitchell passed away. [And the next day I posted a track that samples it.])

Presence, immediacy, feeling: the way his records sound, you’d swear they were nailed in just one take.

What higher compliment could you pay a record producer?
