BLACK MUSIC MONTH SPECIAL: GREEN IN BLACK AND WHITE

In case you haven't yet had a gander at it, behold the glorious cover of our Black Music Month special, featuring the great Al Green.

Green is one of many artists who stretched the boundaries of R&B, blending churchy fervor and straight-up sexual fever into an unforgettable, falsetto-fueled amalgam. Such is the miraculous, intimate chemistry of this musical form, as the Rev. Al and countless other artists (many of them chronicled in our issue) demonstrate. Stay tuned for much, much of the story.
