Breakfast in New Orleans Dinner in Timbuktu

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
Weaving in and out of cultures and musical threads, Bruce Cockburn offers a flowing and multicolored tapestry of song ideas on this sprawling album. Moving among images of time passing in "Use Me If You Can" to a vision of time stopping in "Last Night of the World," BREAKFAST IN NEW ORLEANS captures the rush of a newly global community. There is the lush and lusty tropical afternoon of "Mango," deftly illuminated by the notes of Daniel Janke's African kora and Cowboy Junkie Margo Timmins's vocal's. Cockburn offers a pointed political commentary in "Let the Bad Air Out," and creates a film noir scene with "Embers of Eden," where Jonell Mosser adds harmonies. In a soulful...

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
Weaving in and out of cultures and musical threads, Bruce Cockburn offers a flowing and multicolored tapestry of song ideas on this sprawling album. Moving among images of time passing in "Use Me If You Can" to a vision of time stopping in "Last Night of the World," BREAKFAST IN NEW ORLEANS captures the rush of a newly global community. There is the lush and lusty tropical afternoon of "Mango," deftly illuminated by the notes of Daniel Janke's African kora and Cowboy Junkie Margo Timmins's vocal's. Cockburn offers a pointed political commentary in "Let the Bad Air Out," and creates a film noir scene with "Embers of Eden," where Jonell Mosser adds harmonies. In a soulful reworking of a familiar classic, Cockburn and Timmins combine their voices for a passionate venture to "Blueberry Hill," and the instrumentals "Down in the Delta" and "Deep Lake" resonate with energy and creativity. From the heat of New Orleans to the shifting mirages of the desert, Cockburn's eating tour is a journey worth taking.
All Music Guide - Martin Monkman
Breakfast in New Orleans Dinner in Timbuktu is Bruce Cockburn's 20th studio album. Lyrically, Cockburn doesn't stray from the impressionist poetic lyrics that he's honed over the years, nor does he stray from his favored topics: travelogs, including those drawn from his trips to Third World nations that emphasize his social concerns; reflections on the dynamics of relationships between men and women; and a spiritual mysticism rooted in Christianity. Musically, too, there's a consistency to his folk-jazz-rock amalgam. The album features the vocal contributions of a rotating cast of three women who appear throughout the album. Jonell Mosser sings on two songs, including the single "Last Night of the World." Margo Timmins of Cowboy Junkies lends her breathy pipes to two songs: the sultry "Mango" and a cover of the Fats Domino nugget "Blueberry Hill" that turns up the "rock" and de-emphasizes the "roll." Most important, Lucinda Williams appears on four tracks. The standout track on the album is "Isn't That What Friends Are For." This tender song of friendship is made more poignant by Williams' voice, which always manages to convey a deep sense of hurt. While the lyrics are sure to be enjoyed by those who are willing to listen and think, fans of Cockburn's guitar playing won't be disappointed, either. There are two instrumental pieces, both band efforts, which feature Cockburn's acoustic guitar. "Down to the Delta" is an up-tempo tune, while "Deep Lake" is a quiet, more reflective piece that is close to the impressionistic style of Michael Hedges -- except, of course, that Cockburn has been playing this sort of thing since 1971's High Winds White Sky.

    A new fan

    Rhythmic, sultry, inspirational. His playing is exquisite and the lyrics are thought provoking. "Mango" is sensual; "What Friends are For" and "Last Night of the World" are sensitive. I espicially liked "Look How Far". I hope to add more of his work to my collection.

    Cockburn's 25th Release!

    Bruce Cockburn is a veteran folk/rock artist, and enjoys a large and faithful following in his native Canada, as well as in Europe. His fan-base in the US is smaller, but devoted to this amazing and prolific performer.
