More Trial Music

More trial music: Greg Trooper’s Perfect World, also from his Noises in the Hallway CD.

Best line ever: “I’m not the prince of darkness; tonight I am its king.”

Buy the album. Then buy every other Greg Trooper album. Then buy everything by Slaid Cleaves and Eric Taylor. Impossible to go wrong with these singer-songwriters. They’re the sole practitioners of the music business.

  1. I’ll check it out. I’m a Slaid Cleaves fan already but hadn’t heard of the other two. A lot of my favorite artists come out of Houston: Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle. Too bad you couldn’t make it to Dallas- It was great.

  2. This week, I’ve been listening to a new disk by Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Band — with vocals and guitar by Willie Nelson. They seem an unlikely grouping, but the disk is fantastic.

    Houston is a live music ghetto. It is pretty depressing how many great artists play in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio, but completely bypass Houston.

    I’m still urging everyone I can to do their Christmas shopping through New Orleans E-Tailers. Too late to help now though.
