Breakfast in New Orleans Dinner in Timbuktu

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.
