Maybe it's a good thing Kacey Jones waited 26 years after meeting songwriter Mickey Newbury to record an album of his songs: Four years after his death, Jones, known for her comedy albums and hanging out with Garrison Keillor at Lake Wobegon, breaks your heart so many times on this exquisite disc, you have to think just a bit of her life experience adds to the genius. Country blues have never been bluer, or more eloquent, and Jones' seen-it-all voice is the perfect match for Newbury's poignant worldview. From the ache of "Ramblin' Blues" to the infectious bounce of "San Francisco Mabel Joy," Jones honors a singular talent as only another singular talent could.
