Album Review

The Orchard is an intimate, intensely personal album that ranks among the most compelling of the artist’s career. With help from singer/songwriter Toshi Reagon, Marc Anthony Thompson (who records under the name Chocolate Genius), and members of Ollabelle, Calexico, and Bob Dylan’s band, Wright has created a beautiful, organic feel on The Orchard — one that is the perfect vehicle for her expressive voice and original songwriting vision. Yet it is Wright herself who shines through most powerfully here, whether on stunning originals such as “When I Fall” or her treatments of Ike & Tina’s “I Idolize You” and Led Zeppelin’s “Thank You.”

I'm still dreaming wide awake

I first bought and listened to "Dreaming Wide Awake" and totally loved it. Listen to the title track and "Wake up, little sparrow" and be touched. It quickly became my favorite album, and I keep playing it over and over again. Then I bought "Salt" and got disappointed; nothing more said. When I loaded "The Orchard" I was pleased to hear that Lizz had kept the warmth in her voice she introduced in "Dreaming Wide Awake". "The Orchard" is more "jazzed up" and more "groovy", but it works well. I'm looking forward to spending more time with this album in the days to come, and I'm already seeing this one being played after supper whereas "Dreaming Wide Awake" takes over as day goes to night. Well worth a buy, and surely worth the listen.
