NPR Studio Cuts, Vol. 1

Recorded live in the studio for NPR's Anthem program, which celebrates American musical culture, these songs cut a pretty wide swath across the fabric of the American tradition. From the contemporary blues of Keb' Mo' to the gospel jazz of Medeski, Martin & Wood to the lamentations of Iris Dement to the irreverent country-rock of the Waco Brothers, this collection presents an intelligent, well-balanced view of what is innovative and interesting on the musical scene. Anthem is not in the business of breaking new artists, but the show often sees quality music far outside of the Billboard charts and recognizes it for what it is. The radio programs themselves are far superior for their depth and breadth, but these recordings provide a small taste of the riches that the show offers.
