Tom Jones: Spirit In The Room (CD, EU Version)

(2012/Island) 10 Tracks - 12 page booklet incl. all lyrics. A fantastic roots album of haunting ballads (in the style of Johnny Cash's American recordings) plus great rockin' stuff with a slap bass! Universally graced with critical and commercial success – reaching No 2 in the UK, ‘Praise and Blame’ saw Tom mark a return to his roots and emerge with a powerful body of work drawn from the American spiritual repertoire. Now moving forward with ‘Spirit In The Room’, Tom draws on an evocative range of compositions executed with an unprocessed passion that make them his own. There is a raging interpretation of Tom Wait’s ‘Bad As Me’, a wonderful rendition of Odetta’s ‘Hit Or Miss’, the front porch blues of Vera Hall Ward’s ‘Travelling Shoes’ and a stunning reading of the other-worldly ‘Charlie Darwin’ by Low Anthem— all revealing Tom as he continues to explore his artistic landscape. ‘Spirit In The Room’ once again brings together producer / guitarist Ethan Johns (Brit Award Producer of the Year 2011) and Tom for intimate performances with a very considered and select group of musicians— multi instrumentalist Johns, Richard Causon on vintage keyboards and piano (Ryan Adams, Kings Of Leon and Rufus Wainwright), Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa on drums, and Ian Jennings and Sam Dixon on bass. Recorded at Bath’s Real World studios, ‘Spirit In The Room’, like it’s predecessor, allows an unvarnished Tom Jones to bring a voice to songs as only he can. Accompanied by Ethan Johns throughout, the album includes gems from a diverse choice of writers – Richard Thompson, Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon and Paul McCartney amongst others. Simple, raw and soulful, welcome to ‘Spirit In The Room’. As we’ve been reporting, Tom has also graced a recent single on Jack White’s Third Man label . Featuring Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Evil’ in his own inimitable style and produced and played by White and some of his Raconteurs, the single comes backed with a reworked version of Frankie Lane’s classic ‘Jezebel’ and has already picked up widespread praise .

Artist description "Jones, Tom"

Tom Jones

Geboren am 7. 6.1940 in Pontypridd - Wales Der Sohn eines Bergmanns arbeitete sich mit Zähigkeit an die Spitze des Welt-Showbusiness. Nach ersten, freilich dünnen Erfolgen besang Tom Jones 1965 eine erste Langspielplatte mit iazzigen Evergreens, die unter dem Titel „FromThe Heart' erschien. Wenig später folgte der Titel „What's New, Pussicat“, der ihn erstmals in die Hitparaden schickte. Dieser Erfolg jedoch schien nicht von Dauer, denn es brauchte ein weiteres Jahr, bis Tom Jones sich endgültig einen Dauerplatz in den Hitparaden eroberte. Das gelang ihm zunächst mit dem Song „The Green Green Grass Of Home“.

Nach diesem Sentimentalerfolg begann eine unaufhaltsame Karriere, die besonders in den USA extrem dauerhaft ist. Zu Traumgagen tritt der ehemalige Maurer, der von sich behauptet, nichts außer Champagner zu trinken, bevorzugt in Las Vegas auf, während sein Stern auf dem europäischen Kontinent, den Tom Jones bewußt vernachlässigt hat, mehr und mehr verblaßt. Der Star, der seine Auftritte schon stets mit einer gehörigen Portion Sex zu würzen pflegte, lebt heute in London und Hollywood.
