The time that has flown is Smokey's 50 years in the business, but it could just as well refer to the number of years since Robinson has released a smooth soul album: almost 20 full years! Smokey, of course, has stayed active during the interim, both on-stage and on record, but Time Flies When You're Having Fun marks a return to the coolly simmering quiet storm that was his stock in trade during the '70s and '80s. Apart from production techniques, not much has changed in Smokey's music during the time off, either: this is still smooth, unhurried soul that vacillates between elegance and supper-club classiness. Of course, since these are two sides of the same coin, they fit together seamlessly, with the only question being whether the immaculately polished music veers toward the corny, but whenever it does, Smokey's impeccably tailored vocals steer it back to toward the sweetly romantic. After all these years, Smokey still makes it all seem easy – so easy that it's puzzling why he hasn't made a record like this in so long, because as this comforting, velvety album proves, nobody does it better than he.

One of the most subtly satisfying electric blues albums of the '70s. Fenton Robinson never did quite fit the "Genuine Houserocking Music" image of Alligator Records – his deep, rich baritone sounds more like a magic carpet than a piece of barbed wire, and he speaks in jazz-inflected tongues, full of complex surprises. The title track hits with amazing power, as do the chugging "The Getaway," a hard-swinging "You Say You're Leaving," and the minor-key "You Don't Know What Love Is." In every case, Robinson had recorded them before, but thanks to Bruce Iglauer's superb production, a terrific band, and Robinson's musicianship, these versions reign supreme.

His Japanese fans reverently dubbed Fenton Robinson "the mellow blues genius" because of his ultra-smooth vocals and jazz-inflected guitar work. But beneath the obvious subtlety resides a spark of constant regeneration – Robinson tirelessly strives to invent something fresh and vital whenever he's near a bandstand. The soft-spoken Mississippi native got his career going in Memphis, where he'd moved at age 16. First, Rosco Gordon used him on a 1956 session for Duke that produced "Keep on Doggin'." The next year, Fenton made his own debut as a leader for the Bihari Brothers' Meteor label with his first reading of "Tennessee Woman." His band, the Dukes, included mentor Charles McGowan on guitar. T-Bone Walker and B.B. King were Robinson's idols.

Non tutti sanno che tra "Le cure domestiche", il romanzo d'esordio con il quale Marilynne Robinson divenne una celebrità negli Stati Uniti, e "Gilead", la sua seconda opera narrativa, premiata con il Pulitzer e primo capitolo di una trilogia completata da "Casa e Lila", sono trascorsi ben ventotto anni: dal 1980 al 2008. E non tutti sanno che in questo trentennio o poco meno la Robinson, ben lungi dal rimanere inattiva, si è cimentata ripetutamente con il genere saggistico, regalando ai suoi lettori una serie ininterrotta di perle. Spaziando dalla meditazione teologica a riflessioni sulla letteratura, dal ricordo autobiografico alla disamina di un'intera nazione e delle sue trasformazioni, i saggi di "Quando ero piccola leggevo libri" affrontano da un'angolazione nuova e complementare i grandi temi che sono al centro della sua narrativa - il clima politico e sociale negli Stati Uniti, la centralità della fede religiosa e la generosità di sguardo che ne deriva, la natura dell'individualismo americano e il mito del West - e compongono il ritratto intimo e ricco di sfaccettature di un'autrice che è considerata un vero e proprio classico contemporaneo.
