For Mavis Staples, 'One True Vine' Brings Together Kindred Spirits

Produced by Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, the soul singer's new album follows a narrative arc of struggle, acceptance and salvation. Tweedy's arrangements leave room for Staples' full range of vocal expression, from an R&B growl to gospel fervor.
