Bob's new disc is quite good!
Perhaps I'd go so far as to call it fantastic.
It's in keeping with the tone of his recent live shows - kind of with a country review flavor and a little swingin'.
I could see Willie stealing a few of these gems, Leon Redbone, too.
No clinkers in the lot, great lyrics, and Bob uses his voice in ways that allow him to be nicely expressive and emotive.
I'd give it a solid endorsement!
Now, pardon me while I go try to figure out the difference between expressive and emotive in that last sentence.
