Editorial Reviews

Jesse Harris is a singer/songwriter from New York City. In 2003 he won the Grammy Award for Song Of the Year for Norah Jones's rendition of 'Don't Know Why'. He wrote also four other songs for that album. His songs have been recorded by many other artists as well, including Willie Nelson, Bright Eyes, Feist, Madeleine Peyroux, Lizz Wright and Pat Metheny. Mineral features virtually no electric guitar or bass. Instead, Harris describes a process of discovery in the studio, adding accordion, vibes, chimes, glockenspiel, kalimba and marimba to his skeletal songs. Mineral will appeal to fans of Norah Jones, Jack Johnson, Amos Lee, Ray LaMontagne, Madeleine Peyroux, Paul Simon, James Taylor. Secret Sun. 2006.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with repeated listening March 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album, I liked the sound but the songs didn't take. The album seemed kind of self-indulgent and sad, sort of this artist's "Blood on the Tracks" but without the incredible Dylan lyrics and general songwriting. The lyrics are very simple, and repeated often. Repetition, like water drops, is kind of a theme. Maybe that's the clue to the name of the album: an apparent simplicity.
The more I listen to it, the variation and complexity starts to unfold. And the songs are pretty searing, even if they don't carry Dylan's kind of poetry: Very emotionally honest stuff. At times, this isn't an easy album to listen to, in the way that Lucinda Williams' recent albums are tough. But, I now think it has some of Jesse's very best songs on it. Wolleson and Goldings sound great...the musicians are listening closely to each other. The whole album's aural quality and production are really sublime. So, recommended...don't give up on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mineral March 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album carries the same sound as all of Jesse's works, a sound I've come to know and love. But this is a simpler version of his work. Instrumental songs are brimming with feeling and vocal songs are simpler, with many phrases being repeated. Beautiful as always, but a new side of this artist with a more sophisticated air. I love it and only hope Jesse Harris will continue to give his gift to the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesse's best album yet February 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jesse takes a more ambient approach here with a stripped down trio. with Larry Goldings on Hammond organ, piano, and Wurlitzer and Kenny Wollesen on drums and percussion. Jesse's songs are framed in subtle washes of sound and moody rhythms. I love it!
