Album Review
Mandy Khoshnevisan
Reviewed 2004-03-23 
Starlight and smoke from an acclaimed vocalist; smooth and laid back, with really husky vocals. Jazz combo, almost beat poetry sound: muted acoustic guitar, upright bass, heavy on the bongos. Or maybe it’s like soft bossa nova; lots of latinesque percussion and intricate rhythms. Most songs are pretty similar in feel: Seduction music? Some covers, some originals.

*1. *(4:37) melancholy bossa nova, Sting cover: “Fragile”
2. (4:12) wandering tune, some scatting. strange eerie harmonica chords
3. (4:21) faster, train harmonica, chugging tempo, beat-poetry like.
*4. *(5:29) meditative laid-back. cover: “If Lovin’ You is Wrong”
*5. *(5:08) Soft jazzy wandery Dylan cover: “Lay Lady Lay”
6. (3:02) quiet Willie Nelson cover: “Crazy”
7. (3:19) pretty, watery smooth jazzy with vocal harmonies
*8. *(5:06) quiet jazzy magical, with harmonica
9. (4:48) twangy banjos, ratchet n’ washboard; Muddy Waters cover: “Honey Bee”
*10. *(4:14) soft jingly bossa nova dream
11. (4:37) slow train song, chugging drums
*12. *(4:36) just upright bass n’ vox, and snapping (cover?)
