Joe Cocker has had an ace up his sleeve ever since he exploded into international prominence in 1969. Possessing a gloriously gritty voice and passionate performance style, this perennial blue-eyed soulster has also always displayed unerring taste in the repertoire he records. Heart and Soul is not only no exception to the rule, it may well be the best example of Cocker’s second-nature discernment when it comes to a just-right song. Here Cocker returns to the mother’s milk of his art: timeless R&B classics and well-crafted pop-rock ballads. Cocker digs deep into a song’s tissue, finding himself in the words and music of others. He visits the turf of Aretha Franklin (“Chain of Fools”), Paul McCartney (“Maybe I’m Amazed”), and John Lennon (“Jealous Guy”); pays tribute to two recently deceased legends, fellow Anglo belter Robert Palmer (“Every Kind of People”) and Nina Simone (“I Put a Spell on You”); and brings his inimitable magic to contemporary favorites like U2’s “One” and R.E.M.'s “Everybody Hurts.” It’s obvious that all these songs, whatever their vintage, are personal favorites. Assisting the ageless singer in this most heartfelt of projects are two other Brit-rock giants: guitarists Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck.
