Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-06-08You look at the album cover and hear the first notes of the opener, "Beautiful Rainy Day" and you're ready for an Alison Krauss-type vocal and sweet country sounds. You don't get it. Judy Wright's deep alto voice, bluesy chords, Jazz-influenced delivery and everything's-not-okay lyrics present a much different experience. Wright started singing with her fanily's gospel group, went Opryland country and then sang in a 1940's style band -- and all of these influences combine for a unique Americana approach. I think she's on the right track with the music, but could use additional lyric punch. Nevertheless, I appreciated the fresh direction of the artist and the music. 06/08 MJVD F-Americana
