Buddy Miller – Midnight And Lonesome

Nashville-based Miller's stock has never been higher: Emmylou Harris' musical director for the past five years; superb 2001 collaboration with wife Julie narrowly edged out by Dylan's Love & Theft at the Grammys. Four albums in, this is his finest solo foray yet, remarkable for Miller's skilfully-woven fretwork and plaintive moonlit moan. A couple of throwaway rockers aside, its ambitious scope reins in cajun, dirty blues and old-time country.

Nashville-based Miller’s stock has never been higher: Emmylou Harris’ musical director for the past five years; superb 2001 collaboration with wife Julie narrowly edged out by Dylan’s Love & Theft at the Grammys. Four albums in, this is his finest solo foray yet, remarkable for Miller’s skilfully-woven fretwork and plaintive moonlit moan. A couple of throwaway rockers aside, its ambitious scope reins in cajun, dirty blues and old-time country. Emmylou duet “A Showman’s Life”, Southern soul corker “When It Comes To You” and slowie “Please Send Me Someone To Love” are guaranteed to elicit envious glances from Miller’s peers.
