Humour Me

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
After seven years, Jesse Winchester returned to record stores with a well-crafted pop album made up of new originals in his familiar, winning style. He mixed elements of folk, rock, country, R&B, and gospel on the songs, employing a first-rate backup group featuring new grass stars Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer, and Mark O'Connor, plus saxophonist Jim Horn.
