Once In A Very Blue Moon (Rounder, 2002)

Nanci Griffith

Reviewed by Rick Teverbaugh

"Once In A Very Blue Moon" is one of the signposts to Nanci Griffith's career. The mesmerizing begins with "Ghost In The Music," the disc's first cut and never lets go of the listener. By 1984, when this disc was first presented, this Texas songstress was full of self confidence and comfortable with the direction of her career and music. Several songs come from other writers including the title cut. Lyle Lovett's "If I Were The Woman You Wanted" is one of the many gems. Lovett adds harmony vocals to two cuts and Griffith also gets assistance from B+la Fleck and Mark O'Connor. Griffith is an eclectic artist capable of attracting a wide variety of listeners.
