Product Description

Recorded live at Ardent Studios in Memphis, In the Cool is a collection of deep-grooved songs that are full of meaning and images…some fixed, many open to interpretation. They represent not only her own experiences, but also a very real musical conversation with guitarist/co-producer Bo Ramsey (Greg Brown, Lucinda Williams). When Pieta was 17 she went to see Ramsey play for the first time, and leaning all alone against a barroom wall, she was mesmerized. She remembers thinking matter-of-factly, "Someday I’m gonna play music with that guy." They’ve been friends ever since, and years later, their connection can be felt tangibly throughout In the Cool, lending the record a quality of home, of words unspoken.

In the Cool is remarkable and real, a truly human catch-in-the-throat, a sequence of personal moments simmering beneath a surface of professional edge, stellar production and exceptional musicianship. Contributing to this is an all-star lineup including bassist Hutch Hutchinson (Bonnie Raitt), bassist Dave Jacques (John Prine), keyboardist Kevin McKendree(Delbert McClinton, Etta James, Lee Roy Parnell) and drummer Bryan Owings (Buddy & Julie Miller, Shelby Lynne).

Eight seconds into track one, there's the voice: calming, hypnotic and seductive, it stands inimitable, disembarking like a sultry Midwest breeze and sticking to the ribs like a Delta afternoon. But the singer is also a talented songwriter, and Pieta Brown crafts sharp-eyed and spiritual tunes in the inherent mold of her folksinger father Greg Brown--and with the spirit of the Alabama upbringing by her mother--for a unique soundtrack of country blues, whispered folk and front-porch lullabies. Recorded live at Memphis' famed Ardent Studios, Pieta's third record expands on the minimalist production of her self-titled debut, and guitarist Bo Ramsey returns to ride shotgun, wrapping his inconspicuous blues licks around complex arrangements and the sessions' barn-burning rhythm section. Yet that slide guitar on the sizzling title song belongs to Pieta, and she resonates like the queen of cool, begging to "put on Jimmy Vaughn" so we can "dance all day long." If the next dance is in the cool, I'm there. --Scott Holter
