Christiansen continues to carry his folk jazz guitar into Americana realms with an experimental edge, this time around drawing out praise from Andy Summers who thinks Christiansen is now kicking Duane Allman's ass, where ever it might be. Refashioning a boatload of traditional tunes told from the female Americana perspective, it's like they say, if you haven't heard it before, it's new to you. Having more in common with Ramsey Lewis' 50s sides than Ry Cooder's vision of Americana from back when, this set is an ear opener, even if experimental isn't your guitar religion. Tasty, stuff that really lets you bite into and ponder the possibilities. Well done.
