It's Not All Pretty

Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2011-04-12 
Jazz vocals (f), soulful. Piano + voice. Songs are either jazz-blues, honkey-talk, art. Feminist perspective of “Mary Magdalen” myths- Maeve=Mart- text of these songs inspired by “Maeve Chronicle” books- tells an alternative version of a bit of the Christian mythology.

++1.Gospel-blues, vocal & piano. “There will be passion… morning noon and night.” (goes well with next track)
+2. Spoken story over light jazz piano, sets the scene and introduces characters. Interesting tale. A little singing at the end
++3. pretty acapella, text is poem from 1800’s Scotland
4. folk-blues, mid-tempo guitar & gently percussion
5.Blues-walk. Whore or bride? (Like what DaVinci code was about)
+6.overly-pretty guitar, good folk-singing (reminds me of Ann Magnusson)- voices overdubbed for choral quality at end
7.Spaghetti-western music
+8. Acapella feminist ode to moms
+9. Sad & blue vocal & piano, loss of daughter
10. Slow & blue jazz, mourning song
11.slow folk
+12.Track 3 sung by a chorus. If you’re into Polyphonic Spree then you’re probably going to like this too.
++13.Love/spirituality song. Starts with voice & guitar, then piano (yay), then synths (boo)
