Description

"In such a crowded music universe it is a pleasure to witness triple uniqueness; Pianist, songwriter, singer and at such a level. And who does he sound like?....The answer is; himself A.J. Croce." - Allen Toussaint "A.J. Croce has wisdom beyond his years. With his music, he represents his generation with a profound sense of honesty in his lyrics and quality in his delivery. The future of entertainment is safe in his hands!" - Willie Nelson Produced by legendary soul singer-songwriter Dan Penn, an all-star cast including Steve Cropper, David Hood, Vince Gill, Colin Linden, Bryan Owings, Jeff Taylor, The Muscle Shoals Horns, and The McCrary Sisters come together on Croce's ninth studio album, which includes his first recording of "The Name of the Game," an unreleased song by his father, Jim Croce and "The Heart That Makes Me Whole", written by A.J and the late great Leon Russell. As Croce, who now calls Nashville home, explains, "I wanted to make a real soul album, but not a throwback Stax album or a Motown album or anything like that - even though Dan was producing and there are great players from that world and Muscle Shoals on these tracks." Sonically and in every other way, the intention on JUST LIKE MEDICINE seems to keep things real. "We recorded this album in mono, to analog tape, primarily to two tracks and we never used more than sixteen tracks," says Croce. "Dan explained that when he worked with the Box Tops, they only had like three tracks - one for the band, one for the vocals, one for string and horns. So that became our starting point." As one listen to JUST LIKE MEDICINE confirms, that turned out to be an excellent place to start. Album highlights include "The Heart That Makes Me Whole," written by Croce with the late great Leon Russell and "The Name of the Game," the only known completed and unreleased song written by the elder Croce and the last song that he wrote.
