Summary Solomon Burke was one of the pioneers of Soul music in the late fifties and early sixties, blending R&B, Gospel and Blues to create a new and distinctive sound that would be the dominant force in black music through to the mid-seventies. Described by Jerry Wexler of Atlantic Records as the greatest male soul singer of all time he had his greatest success in the first half of the sixties but carried on performing right up until his death in 2010. Solomon Burke played at Montreux several times in the 2000s and was always popular with the festival crowd. This performance from 2006 showcases his still magnificent voice, his humor and his spirituality on a selection of classic Soul, Gospel and Blues songs for the ultimate goodtime party!
