CD reviews for Steve Martin and Edie Brickell

So Familiar CD review - So Familiar
Much as the duo of Steve Martin and Edie Brickell are reaching toward each other on their second album's cover, their second pairing bridges musical spectrums. Unfortunately, not entirely successfully. Acoustic sounding - fresh, uncluttered, and lively - but distinctly pop oriented - less narrative-based than even their last recording "Love Has Come For You" - "So Familiar" expands their sound further afield. Less Americana, more polished, MOR fare. »»»
Love Has Come For You CD review - Love Has Come For You
No,no, not that Steve and Eydie, the husband and wife duo Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme who had a couple minor hits in the pre-rock era and after that were on every telethon or second-rate variety show in the '60s and '70s. The new and improved Steve and Edie features actor, comedian, novelist, playwright and all-around wild and crazy Renaissance guy Steve Martin. He's had a banjo in his act since the arrow-through-the-head days, but nobody knew until his recent work with the »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Henry comes out the other end a better man – Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although the songs from this fine new album do not address his illness directly, they many times touch upon the big issues of human existence (life, death and the meaning of it all).... »»»
Concert Review: What's in a name? Strings lives up to it – Billy Strings may not be his real name, but the bluegrass performer more than lives up to his adopted moniker. Bluegrass may not be the first style of music when one thinks of William Apostol's (yup, that's Billy's real name) home state of Michigan, but with more miles on the bus and shows like this outstanding, lengthy, lyrical night... »»»
