Jakob Dylan and T Bone Burnett discuss 'Women + Country'

Biography

"I knew going into this record that I wanted to hear something full and vibrant," says singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan of Women and Country. "I wanted horns and fiddle, for it to be as big and beautiful sounding as it could with instrumentation. That changes the lyrics and tone of what you're writing."

Those instincts are evident across the album's tracks, a ... Read more in Amazon's Jakob Dylan Store

Editorial Reviews

Women + Country is Jakob Dylan s highly anticipated sophomore album following his critically acclaimed solo debut, Seeing Things. Women + Country is soulful yet striking, ripe with sublime beauty. Paired with Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe award winning producer T Bone Burnett (Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Crazy Heart) and joined with the stirringly rich vocals of Neko Case and Kelly Hogan, Women + Country creates a compelling and powerful experience for the listener.

First off - why albums are released at different times around the world is a source of great frustration to me. The US had the initial release on the 6th, Europe on the 19th and Japan [rest of the world] when someone can be bothered. Fortunately import versions are available to anyone prepared to pay a little extra. And simply this album is worth paying a little extra for. The mix on the album and the overall sound is quite beautiful.

I read some criticism of this album, complaining that Jakob and his vocals had been, somehow, dumped into backing tracks and a different genre that was totally inappropriate. I just dont hear that at all, the sound and the mix for me is almost perfect. Very sympathetic. I also dont think this a country recording as other listeners suggested, sure some songs have a slight country tinge, but I even have problems labelling this Americana. At any other point in time eg. 10 years ago this would be a rock album to everyone and it is too me.

Jakobs lyrics are interesting and his voice is great, the backing and playing is just top-notch. As a producer T-Bone Burnett does not have many peers, and it was inevitable that they would work together again, considering the success they had with "Bringing Down The Horse".

Its hard to pick out particular songs - but I will try.

The song "Lend a hand" sounds like it would not be out of place on a Tom Waits album, around the raindogs period, a great New Orleans/Jazzy feel to it. "Nothing but the whole wide world" - a great lilting ballad which has beautiful harmonies from Neko Case. Actually on most of the album the harmonies are great and give a very warm feel. The country-tinge continues on the gentle "down on our own shield".

Jakob Dylan's solo debut "Seeing things" was a largely stripped acoustic affair produced by Rick Rubin. His sophomore disc is produced by T Bone Burnett and features harmonies by Neko Case and Kelly Hogan set against a fuller musical backdrop.

The gentle "Nothing but the whole wide world" has sweeping strings, fiddle, and beautiful female harmonies intertwined with Dylan's for a lovely Country song. Even more melancholic but startingly lovely is "Down on our own shield".

The dramatic "Lend a hand" has a whole different pseudo-Jazzy feel with horns, plodding marching beats, and dramatic lyrics. "We don't live here anymore", also with gently plodding beats and fiddle is darker.

"Everyboby's hurting" is a sweeping Country song with lovely harmonies, while the ever so gentle lilting "Yonder come the Blues" reminds me of Bruce Springsteen's more tender moments.

Every song is a delight really; the gentle "Holy rollers for love", the more upbeat but still forlorn-sounding "Truth for a truth", the Folky "They've trapped us boys", the swaying "Smile when you call me that", and the horn-sprinkled upbeat "Standing eight count" (with gently thumping beats and chugging bass).

Much as his debut was beautiful in it's simplicity, I feel this is even better and another winner.

I'm a huge fan of this collection of related and interwoven songs. They're all of a piece, certainly, but each song stands on its own, too. There's a clear T-Bone Burnett stamp on this music, in much the same way that he orchestrated the magic between Robert Plant and Allison Krauss in the phenomenal Raising Sand, and before that with The Wallflower's Bringing Down the Horse. At this point, I'd probably buy anything T Bone produced.

However, the excellence of T-Bone's production aside, this is a beautiful and haunting collection of songs. Jakob has most definitely assumed his own place in the firmament of musicians apart from the very large footprints his dad left. I've been listening to and rooting for him since his first outing with the Wallflowers back in the 90's. He constantly proves himself more grounded as a musician and surer of his voice, as this wonderful disc shows. (Check out Dylan + collaborators on the net performing several of these of these songs at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.)

This disc has been in my car's six-disc player since it came out and I can't see replacing it anytime soon. I really love this music.

I love this project, but I think it would have been much better without T-Bone Burnett.

Neko Case lends Dylan herself as backing vocalist, and her whole damn band, including on the tour. How many artists with her solo career would do something like this? Awesome.

The songs are good, and Neko and Hogan sound great on the harmonies... when you can hear them. Unfortunately, they are mostly buried under totally inappropriate bouncy bass lines and overall syrupy soft overproduction. If you want to hear how good these songs can sound, try the "Tiny Desk Concert" of 3 songs on NPR's website/podcast, or fish around on youtube. Incredible!

So, it's 5 stars for the project and 1 star for the production, averaging out to 3.

This is a very impressive CD release by the talented singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan, titled "Women And Country". He composed all the songs on this solid CD & was produced by the legendary T-Bone Burnett (John Mellencamp, Counting Crows, etc). His sound on this CD is quite similar to what his father does (but different to his band 'Wallflowers') : folk rock with a countryish touch and rather well crafted for this 'young man'! The CD opens this a solid track/gem, "Nothing But The Whole World" : a beautiful folk rock track with 'countryish base track'. The song does give an overall impression/drift of the album. "Down On Our Own Shield" is another solid track/gem with great melody & harmonies. "Lend A Hand" is a great track : great saxophone/drums combination, great guitar with 'patchy' vocals. "We Don't Live Here Anymore" is a good track : good Spanish guitar, violin & vocals. "Everybody Hurting" is a solid track/gem : a beautiful violin & drum combination with matching great guitar & great vocals. "Yonder Come The Blues" is another solid track/gem : wonderful violin & bass combination with great melody & harmonies. "High Rollers For Love" is a good track with good violin/bass/rhythm guitar combination. "Truth For A Truth" is great track with simple but yet effective lyrics. "They've Trapped Us Boys" is a solid track/gem with a beautiful Spanish guitar/banjo, a great chorus & melody. This is my favourite track from this great album. "Smile When You Call Me That" is another solid track/gem with great guitar, beautiful chorus & harmony. The album closes with a great track, "Standing Eight Count". On overall, this is a very impressive compositions (Jakob Dylan) & well crafted production (T-Bone Burnett). His legendary father (Bob Dylan) would certainly be pround of his son's (Jakob Dylan) effort on this album, but it's not easy walking on the shadow of a great legend. I was rather surprisingly blown away by this solid CD release, "Women And Country", a highly recommended listening.
