Overview

Amy Winehouse's inspired fusion of blues, jazz, R&B, soul, and classic girl group dynamics into a compelling whole reveals an artist who knew how to listen to music and pull what she needed from what went before, which is why this 26-track playlist of some of the records that influenced her is so interesting. The range and variety here are illuminating, from jazz, bop, pop, soul, and R&B to Motown and the great girl groups of the '60s, from Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" to Carole King's "I Feel the Earth Move," Ray Charles' "Lonely Avenue," Lloyd Price's "Stagger Lee," and Ella Fitzgerald's "Body and Soul," and it all flows well together -- so well, in fact, that this set can be easily enjoyed even without the Amy Winehouse angle in the background.
