I dig...music

Okay...I said I'd be back to tell you about some of the music I've been listening to and enjoying recently. 1. Raising Sand - this is the album put out by Allison Krause and Robert Plant. It's produced by T-Bone Burnett and like most things he does, it's great. My favorite track right now is "Killing the Blues" I want a pedal steel guitar. 2. The Story - this is Brandi Carlisle's lastest...also produced by T-Bone Burnett. The songs are great and her vocals are really strong. I particularly like the last song which I can't recall the title of right now. 3. Flyover State - this is the upcoming release by Dave Brusie. Dave and I are in a songwriting group together though you would never guess because neither of us have actually attended for quite some time. Dave's been working on this record for a while and it is now in the final mixing stage. Look for updates on release shows and get yourself a copy when it comes out in May or June. 4. I saw Lucy Kaplansky and Storyhill at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul a week or so ago, and it was sweet. I hadn't seen Lucy before, and she was excellent live. She did perform "10 Year Night" which is one of my favorite tunes by her. Storyhill was excellent as always. By far the highlight of the night was the three of them performing John Gorka's "Gypsy Life" at the end of the show. Damn. What have you been listening to?
