Amy Winehouse Essentials

Amy Winehouse Essentials

Boasting a full-bodied alto, a deeply felt love of soul music, and a bleakly honest sense of humor, Amy Winehouse became one of the aughts' hottest R&B upstarts after releasing her debut, Frank, which includes the lover's indictment “Stronger Than Me” and the Nas-sampling sashay “In My Bed.” Her breakthrough, Back to Black, leans into and spins forward ‘60s soul, fusing the precision-grade horns of her backing band The Dap-Kings with hip-hop-informed beats on the brooding “You Know I'm No Good” and the stormy title track. Her final recording, a duet with pop-jazz legend—and personal hero—Tony Bennett, further reveals her shrewd interpretative skill and undeniable talent.
