Overview

This is how good it can sound when two master craftsmen combine their talents. REAL TIME finds bluegrass/newgrass stalwart Tim O'Brien continuing his collaboration with bandmate and songwriting partner Darrell Scott, the ace Nashville sideman more often heard backing Martina McBride, Deana Carter, Guy Clark, and Randy Travis. The result is a collection that's neither strictly bluegrass nor country but that will excite fans from each side of that Americana divide. O'Brien and Scott's songwriting reputation -- built on songs for the likes of Garth Brooks -- is confirmed by tracks like Scott's soulful workingman country blues, "There Ain't No Easy Way" and O'Brien's hopeful and bittersweet take on love and friendship, "I'm Not Gonna Forget You." The two team up for a pair of Hank Williams covers, including an inspired take on "House of Gold," complete with a gospel-style call and response. They close the 13-cut set with an improvised rave-up featuring their instrumental prowess: "The Second Mouse" brings in bluegrass, country, blues, rock, soul -- and a toy trombone. True to its name, REAL TIME was recorded live over just a few days in Scott's living room. The resulting album testifies to the musical harmony of the pair. Kerry Dexter
