Flo Morrissey And Matthew E. White Gentlewoman, Ruby Man
Release Date: January 13, 2017
Gentlewoman, Ruby Man, in some ways a straightforward duets record, Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White record a collection of great songs as a one-off, Marvin & Tammi-style. In other ways it’s a more unique animal, less typical back and forth duets, more subtle and complimentary spotlight sharing. An album of covers could have slipped into mindless eclecticism, commercial efforts at popularity or crate digging cred, but White and Morrissey simply picked good, sometimes unexpected songs that they love and feel connected to, from “Grease” (1978), to a spine-tingling take on James Blake’s “The Colour In Anything” (2016).
