Yea, it's pretty cool, I think. Nice covers of songs by a diverse group of composers. Here's a list...
Tower Of Song (L.Cohen) (I Want To) Come Home (P.McCartney) Hit Or Miss (Odetta) Love And Blessings (P.Simon) Soul Of A Man (Blind Willie Johnson) Bad As Me (T.Waits) Dimming Of The Day (R & L.Thompson) Travelling Shoes (V.Hall Ward) All Blues Hail Mary (J.Henry) Charlie Darwin (Low Anthem)
Kind of mellow for a singer with such potential for power and drama. A nice change of pace for him.
I was on an out-of-state trip last weekend and listening to a jazz station on the car radio early Sunday morning when the DJ played a song called "Morning Pace." I got where I was going but had to sit in the car and listen to the end. It was exactly what I needed to hear at that moment. So I made a note to order the CD, and it came in the mail the other day.
When I played the CD, did "Morning Pace" sound as good as it did that first time? Well, no, it didn't. Nothing can reproduce the "click" that sometimes happens when you come upon a piece of music by chance. But I still believe that discovering albums by serendipity is as good as any other method.
