Grady Tate’s “After the Long Drive Home” is a soul masterpiece that is greatly under-appreciated. It’s a concept album centering around the reflective solitude one feels after the dissolution of a significant long-term relationship; a meditation on what it means to understand yourself in new ways when you are alone. It reminds me in this regard of Sinatra’s “In the Wee Small Hours…” (it helps the comparison that Tate is supported by an orchestra here, just as Sinatra was on his album).
The songs are mellow, sometimes somber, and sometimes triumphant.
