"I Am What I Am" is a disc that seems to lean a bit closer to jazz than usual, giving the music a new feel with many unexpected flourishes. It is fantastic. Give it a listen, but put aside any assumptions that you'll be listening to a rehash of his popular tunes of years gone by.
I hope that Merle continues to record many more wonderful CDs for Vanguard Records, as they seem to have given him the freedom to be what he is...
Much of this cd is in a quiet mode, but Merle sounds invigorated on every track. I'm glad that Merle Haggard is what he is -- one of the finest performers and songwriters in American music history. Highly recommended.
Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesny, etc. none of them are worthy of holding Merle Haggard's hat, but their soulless crap will outsell Merle's honest and heartfelt music.
"One day when our dream world finds us..." ( that one by Roger Miller--Train of Life) Where did it all go? Well pick this one up and you will find it again...

I think you must have been drunk or high I have been to five of his concerts in the last two years and he has been fantastic at all of them!! He can show a lot of the new country won a bee's a few things or two. I love the Haggards and will not miss a concert that is close to my area. JB.
