T Bone Burnett

Editorial Reviews

Backed by a superb acoustic band including David Hidalgo, Jerry Douglas, Byron Berline, and Jerry Scheff, Burnett's vocals are in superb form here, and while the album is a bit short on top-shelf T-Bone originals half the album's songs are either covers or collaborations, what is here is compelling and listenable. T-Bone Burnett in many ways sounds like a casual project sandwiched between Burnett's "real" albums, but one listen confirms it's still the work of a major talent.
