Bruce Springsteen’s soul tribute to the Big Man

Bruce Springsteen showed his most soulful side last Sunday in Asbury Park, at an extraordinary tribute concert at the Wonder Bar. The reason: a tribute to Clarence Clemons by The Sensational Soul Cruisers, accompanied by vocalist JT Bowen, former singer of Clarence Clemons’ Red Bank Rockers in the early 80’s. After a break from the band, Springsteen joined them during the second set and one by one performed on some of the best songs in the history of soul: «634-5789», «Sweet Soul Music», «Ain’t Too Proud to Beg», «Shake», «You Can’t Sit Down», «Knock on Wood», «Raise your Hand» and two Springsteen-penned tunes: «Savin ‘Up» (which Clarence recorded and released) and the rare «Action in the Streets», occasionally performed on the short 1977 tour.
