Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2007-05-14Elana James was handpicked to be in Bob Dylan’s band & spent many years supporting & playing as part of the Hot Club of Cowtown, on this her first solo release you know how gifted of a musician & song writher she is. Elana has the fiery style of Violin playing that could easily be compared to Stephane Grappelli & the swing sounds of Djano Reinhardt. You combine those qualities with Elanas beautiful & seductive vocal quality’s & you have a disc of musical magic. In addition to the obvious swing sounds you can hear the country flare in her voice on tracks like “The Little Green Valley’ & “I don’t Mind”. It’s truly a shame that this terrific CD has not been picked up by a major label because Elana deserves a lot of attention. - Gregg Saur
