Album Review
MC Dizzy Jackson
Reviewed 2013-08-04 
Bratcher is based in Vermont and bass player of The Starline Rhythm Boys. On this solo project he channels old-timey American music in the style of Leon Redbone. Eclectic instrumentation of violins, horns, cello, jews harp, jug, gtr, bass, dobro, piano, etc. Mostly ‘good-time’ tunes, all played solidly. No FCC’s.

*My Favorites*: All are fantastic.

1. (2:22) Mid. Upbeat Dixie romp.
2. (3:27) Mid. Nice horn section.
3. (5:10) Slow / Mid. Bluesy mourner.
4. (3:13) Mid. Upbeat, classic Redbone.
5. (4:13) Mid. Fun story-song.
6. (4:41) Slow / Mid. Relaxed and jazzy.
7. (3:05) Mid. Fun w/ jews harp, castanets.
8. (3:09) Mid. Upbeat Dixie vibe.
9. (3:29) Mid. Easy-going w/ Dixie flair.
10. (3:21) Slow / Mid. Jazzy mourner.
11. (2:24) Mid. Bluesy w/ stop/starts.
12. (2:48) Mid. Heartbreaker w/ brushes.
13. (3:03) Mid. Classic tune, w/ nice gtr.
14. (3:00) Mid. Mellow w/ Hawaiian steel gtr.
15. (2:49) Mid. Back-porch bluesy country vibe.
16. (2:47) Mid. Bluesy, jazzy traveling tune.
17. (2:17) Mid. Upbeat folky, country vibe.
18. (4:42) Slow / Mid. Mellow Dixie vibe.
