Soul legrend Don Bryant releases his third solo album

If you turn your ears a certain way, You Make Me Feel by soul great Don Bryant can be heard as a love letter to his wife of 50 years, Ann Peebles. That killer horn riff that kicks off the album? Think of it as a fanfare preceding the reading of a royal decree; or maybe it's a funky version of a wedding march.

Written by Bryant and producer Scott Bomar, "Your Love Is to Blame" has the chorus of a good blues song: "Nothing in my life is the same/Your love is to blame." But here, "blame" gets a halo. "I tried to turn this one around," Don says with a slight grin. Then he explains, "Your love is to blame because we are together!"

Produced by Scott Bomar, who recently scored Dolemite Is My Name and mixed by Matt Ross-Spang (Elvis Presley, Al Green, John Prine), You Make Me Feel continues Don's resurgence with newly written music and a revisit to Don's celebrated back catalog, where he's interpreting some of his songs for the first time. Musicians include members of the Hi Rhythm section — Howard Grimes, Archie "Hubbie" Turner and Charles Hodges, who played on his by Al Green and Ann Peebles — with members of St. Paul and the Broken Bones and The Bo-Keys."It feels good to have found my own voice," says Don, who never stopped writing. "Music has always been a part of me, I've never given up on it, never let it go. If I'm walking around, I'm humming songs. Now, I'm trying to let it all out. What I had, what I got, and what I'm gonna get."

Don is nearing the age of 80, and You Make Me Feel is his third solo album.
