Americana
Review of compilation CD

By Julius Timmerman
Posted Monday, September 17, 2007

This compilation of easy listening songs by contemporary singer-songwriters from America has rural roots, with the occasional sprinkling of jazz, folk and blues. No cutting edge material here, just good old-fashioned relaxing sittin’ on the porch material. Good chill-out stuff for a hectic world.

Artists include Robin Ella, Mulehead, The Little Willies (with Nora Jones on vocals), Robert Earl Keen, Eliza Lynn, Old Crow Medicine Show, Chip Taylor, Tim O’Brien, Alison Brown, Terri Hendrix, Josh Ritter and Ruthie Foster.

The level of artistry in both arrangements and performances is consistently high, making for a quality album that will soothe your cares away.
