Baritone belter Solomon Burke is one of the great comeback stories of recent years: a second-tier ’60s soul star who has transformed himself, in his seventh decade, into an American ballad singer for the ages. On Nashville, Burke teams with veteran producer Buddy Miller and a host of all-star duet partners (Dolly Parton, Gillian Welch) for a country-soul tour de force. Burke can rumble through bluesy barn burners, but he thrives on the slow and stately stuff, wringing every last bit of gravity and grace out of warhorses like ”That’s How I Got to Memphis.” Bring your hankie.
