Ural Thomas, born in Louisiana in 1939 and living in Portland (OR) since he was a child, being one of the soul singers with the most personality and charisma among his contemporaries who emerged in the 1960s, has not had a career in keeping with his worth or the general recognition that his voice and stage presence have deserved since he published the single "Can You Dig It" in the late sixties and an album recorded live entitled "Can You Dig it Live" released by Revue, MCA's subsidiary label. Decades went by without Ural earning the industry's attention, and he limited himself to performances at clubs within his reach in Portland. It wasn't until 2014 that he met Scott Mcgee, a drummer and DJ also from the city, who admired Ural's uniqueness and recruited a band, The Pain, to perform live together. In 2016 they released their first studio album titled "Ural Thomas & The Pain" and two years later a second studio album "The Right Time". Only two wonderful studio albums in the career of a musician as great as Thomas has not made any sense or explanation. The adventure of both had a splendid result, both fans and media raised these two recordings to the top, he became a touring artist, and a third album entered his projects. The English independent label Bella Union has just released this third album "Dancing Dimensions", with its subsequent European tour, a truly special work, the Soul of Ural Thomas has advanced towards a point of modernity and readjustment that is at the forefront of this music. The musicians of The Pain build a sound universe that includes all kinds of arrangements so that Ural's voice is challenging and electrifying in songs where soul, funk and R&B provide rhythms as advanced as they are prescient. At eighty-three years old, Ural Thomas has made the album that would have made Otis Redding if he were still with us.
