Unsere Anmerkungen

Sneaking in a solo career in between production work, Joe Henry is completely focused on this acoustic collection, and a variety of guests further color the long night. These are tunes worthy of a nightclub in a simpler era, when patrons sat back and let the music wash over them. There’s a touch of jazz and cabaret, as if Henry were a distant cousin of Tom Waits. Guitarist Marc Ribot (who's worked with Waits, along with Elvis Costello and many other esteemed names) sits down for a few, while Irish singer/songwriter Lisa Hannigan adds her touch. The tracks were recorded live in Henry’s home studio. There’s a dry naturalness to “Odetta,” a tune that’s halfway to gospel and the Americana cadences of The Band. “After the War” has the somber tone of recovery striking at the tune’s heart. “Room at Arles” is a tribute and spiritual wail for Vic Chesnutt, the late, great genius singer/songwriter from Athens, Ga. “Deathbed Versions” evokes the Delta blues of the early 20th century.



Joe Henry has returned to something like the sound that he developed so well on the albums "Civilains", "Blood From Stars", and "Tiny Voices". Fans of Mr. Henry who want the growly and abrasive sounds of "The Phoenix" or "Swamp Dawg" can stop reading and go elsewhere. These songs resonate nicely, both musically and lyrically, with Ryan Adam's new "Ashes and Fire", Bob Dylans recent work (particularly "Time Out of Mind"), and the gentler ballads by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (hybrid playlist magic in the offing). The arrangements are relatively sparse, but not necessarily 'ragged' as Henry has declared. They are certainly less elaborately produced and are restricted largely to a simple ensemble of piano, guitar, drums, and bass. The lyrical images generally do not quite hit the heights of the bests songs from the three kindred albums mentioned above, but they do seem to be intended for discerning adults who are seeking a certain complimentarity between calm playing and thoughtfully constructed stories or metaphors. Please believe me when I say that this album is not as bland and boring as this review.
