Only Sun

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Singer-songwriter Judith Edelman's music occupies a sort of no-man's land between roots-rock and bluegrass; her regular band consists of herself on guitar, bassist Ben Winship, mandolinist Matt Flinner and fiddler Brian Wicklund, and their sound bears more or less the same relationship to rock & roll that David Grisman's does to jazz.

"Only Sun" and the elegant "Some Will Run" are two of her better melodies, and on "Luggage and Dancing Shoes" she harmonizes sweetly and wistfully with Winship.

Overall, though, this is a very strong effort from a top-notch artist.
