Review: A more unlikely combination I cannot imagine and it works beautifully! The band ROCKS throughout, playing jazz with a western tinge, and the gravelly voice of Williams fits right in. She doesn’t sing on every track, and the instrumentals have a life of their own. Bill Frissell plays his ass off.
If You Like: Emmylou Harris’ “Wrecking Ball”, Wayne Shorter, Neil Young’s “Weld”
