It's Not Big It's Large

Lyle Lovett convenes his Large Band -- 36 members strong at this point -- for a record as wide-ranging as his '90s hallmarks. From country to jazz, gospel, blues, and back, it's all here, including the first Large Band instrumental since 1989, Lester Young's "Tickle Toe." The album, recorded completely live, captures the virtuosity of country music's most ambitious songwriter and his redoubtable outfit.

I think Lyle Lovett has a great voice,and I usually love his CDs, but this one was a disappointment to me. I have listened to it repeatedly and have tried to like it, because I like him, but I just can't like this one.

Lyle's song writing is about the best in the business, and the musical arrangement of this album is spectacular. Listen to I will rise up, Don't cry a tear, South Texas girl and the Alley song and see if you can question Lyle's ability to write a powerful song that conveys emotion. Also buy the album that has the DVD, it has recording studio stuff in it that is excellent.
