Harmonica player, singer, and songwriter Charlie Musselwhite reaches back to his childhood in Memphis for One Night in America. It was an era when country, blues, and rhythm and blues blended seamlessly into the aural landscape of the American South, and in Musselwhite’s musical palette they all blend together as naturally as the colors in a sunset on the Mississippi River. He paints R&B singer/songwriter Ivory Joe Hunter’s “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” as a sad country ballad. Johnny Cash’s “Big River” is a roaring, Americana-tinged blues with Musselwhite’s harmonica wailing next to G. E. Smith’s fired-up guitar. Country singer Kelly Willis joins in on vocals for the hymnlike “Rank Strangers to Me,” and guitarist Robben Ford is featured on several cuts, including a rousing version of Jimmy Reed’s “Ain’t That Lovin’ You Baby.” One Night in America is not Musslewhite’s first foray outside of the strictly defined blues genre, but as Americana fans have come to understand, the line between roots genres is best when blurred or nonexistent.
