JD Souther proves once again why he's an American treasure," says Irving Azoff, the music industry icon whose company manages Souther. Called "an American songwriting treasure" (Creative Loafing), with a "musical history that is improbably rich" (San Diego Union Tribune), Souther's Tenderness continues the new path in sound and style that he has forged since his return to recording in 2008; but at the same time, the album is unlike anything he has previously recorded. Joining Souther on guitar and vocals are longtime collaborators pianist Chris Walters.
On his new album, Tenderness, . s debut album on Masterworks, he worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Larry Klein who has produced albums for Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux, Herbie Hancock and Tracy Chapman, to name a few. Tenderness is a late-night masterpiece, haunting and wise and entirely reflective of the persona of this mysteriously brilliant American treasure. JD Souther's "Tenderness" is a strong set. The best track is "Something in the Dark" that has a catchy beat and recalls some of Souther's pop work, but with strings added and a smoky jazz-inflected arrangement that has a slightly sinister feeling, "You could have made a deal when your hands were steady, before you shut the door on your only friend.
