    Music Box: T Bone Burnett, Sam Phillips Stand-Outs on New Plant/Krauss CD
    Jesse Dylan

    In the latest issue of The Music Box, writer John Metzger reviews the new Robert Plant / Alison Krauss collaboration, Raising Sand. Metzger has kind words for the two singers but saves his highest praise for the album's producer, T Bone Burnett. He calls the project "Burnett's baby" and expects that fans of T Bone's work on Sam Phillips’s A Boot and a Shoe, in particular, will appreciate Burnett's efforts on the new record.

    "He did a magnificent job finding the right songs and sculpting the perfect arrangements for Plant and Krauss to perform," Metzger writes. Included among the tracks is Sam Phillips's "Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us," which, he says, "is delivered as a moody hallucination that comes in the wake of crushing heartache."

    Sam's own version of the song will appear on her follow-up to A Boot and a Shoe called Don't Do Anything, due out early next year on Nonesuch. Burnett's own record is also slated for release sometime next spring.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
