Music by Jonatha Brooke
Lyrics by Woody Guthrie
Our newest album of Woody's unpublished lyrics from The Guthrie Archives is a very significant project. For the first time ever a woman has composed, arranged, produced and performed a complete album of Woody Guthrie songs. The gods must be shaking their heads, "'bout time!" Jonatha's antennae honed in on Woody's love songs, which are still relatively unknown. Some are sweetly childlike, other's more spiritual. Some are downright pissed off or downright sexual! But they all swirl around Woody's broad concept of love, as a complete theme in and of itself.
With Joe Sample, Steve Gadd and Christian McBride. Special guest appearances by: Keb Mo', Derek Trucks, Glen Phillips and Eric Bazilian.
