Format: Audio CD
Unlike the 1990s album Mermaid Avenue where singers put new folky melodies to go with unpublished lyrics by Woody Guthrie this CD (in cooperation with Woody's daughter Nora and the Woody Guthrie Archive) provides musical backgrounds for some of Woody's prose pieces. A very diverse collection of jazz, blues and rock artists come together to interpret the texts and I'm amazed to report that I liked all the tracks - even Lou Reed who I normally can't stand. I'm not a jazz fan but I particularly liked the jazz tracks from Kurt Elling and Studs Terkel's spoken word piece. I thought that Madeleine Peyroux's track was wonderfully successful and that Chris Whitley's contribution "On the high lonesome" was particularly stark and powerful.

I can't really pin down why I like this album so much, I'm not particularly a Woody Guthrie fan or a big fan of any of the contributors but it just comes out of left field and seems to work as a whole - possibly because of Rob Wasserman's fabulous bass playing which features on all the tracks. Nice to see Woody's old colleague Pete Seeger taking part as well.

I was hoping for some Guthrie covers not a potted pastiche of his life/works of variable quality. Don't know what the CD is trying to achieve, lost on me.
