Don't feel at all guilty if you miss church this weekend. Just make sure you spend a little extra time with the new album from Mavis Staples,
"One True Vine," because it's got all the soul and spirituality you'll need. The legendary voice, Mavis Staples, returned to the studio with Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy to record this new collection. It only makes sense since their first collaboration together, 2010's You Are Not Alone, earned Staples the first Grammy of her illustrious career. That spirit and connection that emerged a few years ago was harnessed and reinvigorated in the sessions for this latest album, One True Vine on ANTI Records.
Gospel-rock legend Mavis Staples played a powerful set accompanied only by a guitarist for the downstairs Non-COMM crowd at World Cafe Live. Her performance touched on Staples Singers staples such as “The Weight” and “I’ll Take You T” along with selections from her new Jeff Tweedy-produced LP One True Vine. Check out photos from the performance and see the setlist below.
