Viktor Krauss is a quintessential supporting player. The brother of bluegrass superstar Alison, he's recorded with Lyle Lovett, Jerry Douglas, Chet Atkins, and Emmylou Harris. Yet in 2004 he authored a nearly perfect album of ambient Americana, Far from Enough, that was full of delicately shaded instrumental moods and electrically charged textures. Much of that came from Jerry Douglas and guitarist Bill Frisell, who were both all over the disc. Frisell, with whom Krauss often plays, is only on a couple of tracks here. He's replaced by Dean Parks, a veteran session player who's recorded with everyone from Steely Dan to Andrea Bocelli. A guitar chameleon, Parks seems to exacerbate the fuzzy compositional focus of Viktor Krauss II. The opening track, "Hop," is promising, with a grinding country power-trio groove that's more Explosions in the Sky than Chet Atkins. But many of the instrumentals sound like jam-session vamps, including "Pinky Ring" and "No Time Like the Past." As he did on Far from Enough, Krauss works better at the atmospheric edges, like "Eyes in the Heat," with Dean Parks soloing freely over a moody modal groove while Indian singer Shweta Jhaveri vocalizes wordlessly, literally moving through the background. Jhaveri's three guest appearances are among the best pieces on VKII, especially her multitracked scatting on "Ecotone." The vocal tunes with Lyle Lovett and Ben Taylor sound half-hearted at best, but Shawn Colvin gives a sweet read on a countrified reworking of Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond." Far from Enough was an album that dedicated itself to a sound; Viktor Krauss II has its moments, but doesn't want to commit. --John Diliberto
