Another Place and Another Time...

Just got an advance copy of the next Tony Joe White album. It's called "Deep Cuts" and it features him revisiting ten of his early songs in a new setting. Son Jody backs the old man by offering a dizzying palette of new loops and beats that transform some familiar songs for todays ears and technology. After a couple of listens his lengthy take on "Willie And Laura Mae Jones" is essential listening.

An old dog learns some new tricks and shares them with us. The perfect way to kick off summer.
