From A Whisper To A Scream
RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2014 .
Justifiably hailed as her âcareerâ album, FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM re-established the late Esther Phillips as a prominent soul and jazz artist in 1972, starting her most fruitful period as an international chartmaker through her five-year association with jazz industry veteran Creed Taylorâs Kudu Records.
Originally a chart-topping child star with the Johnny Otis band in the early â50s, Little Esther battled drug addiction off and on throughout the â60s during which she achieved some success with âRelease Meâ (1963) and âAnd I Love Himâ (1965). Esther recorded some critically acclaimed albums for Atlantic before entering rehab in 1969.
The sessions for FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM in December 1971 found her surrounded by stellar players such as Gordon Edwards (bass), Bernard Purdie (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion), Cornell Dupree and Eric Gale (guitar), Richard Tee (keyboards) and labelmate Hank Crawford (on sax on selected tracks).
Handpicking the material herself, Esther included some Ramp;B hits of the time â The Originalsâ âBaby Iâm For Real,â Eddie Floydâs ââTil My Back Ainât Got No Boneâ â alongside two songs penned by Allen Toussaint, including the stirring title track. The albumâs most notable cut was her true-to-life version of Gil Scott-Heronâs âHome Is Where The Hatred Is,â which she was initially reluctant to record given its direct references to heroin addiction.
Notes by SoulMusic.com founder David Nathan include quotes from a 1973 interview with Esther.
