Memphis is Elvis, and Memphis is Beale Street, and Memphis is the Mississippi and the heartland. The city’s namesake is an ancient capital, adjacent to one of the most ancient of rivers, that was the final resting place of the gods; this was not an accident. There is heavy mojo here. The music is in the air, in the ground, it is everywhere. It comes from the church, from gospel, from ancient rhythms.
