THE LITTLE WILLIES
Avis aux amateurs du jazz langoureux de Norah Jones : il y a de fortes chances d'être décontenancé par cet album, qu'elle partage avec quatre compagnons de musique. Avis aux amateurs de country : il peut y avoir de la surprise de voir ses classiques du genre interprétés avec autant de modernité.
Pourtant, The Little Willies n'ont d'autre ambition ici que de rendre hommage à ceux dont ils idolâtrent les mélodies depuis longtemps. Ainsi, le « Roly Poly » de Fred Rose est ici réinterprété, tout comme « I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive » de Hank Williams, « Gotta Get Drunk and Nightlife » de Willie Nelson ou encore « Best of All Possible Worlds » de Kriss Kristofferson.
Reprendre ces standards déjà débordant de charme n'est pas tâche aisée, et The Little Willies relèvent le défi avec brio. Le chant délicat et suave de Norah Jones se marie à merveille avec celui de Richard Julian, tout simplement envoûtant. The Little Willies ne se résume cependant pas à une succession de reprises, l'auditeur a également le droit de découvrir des compositions originales comme le savoureux « Lou Reed ». Ce morceau termine avec panache cet album humble et authentique.

The little Willies est vraiment un tres bon groupe de Country music, les musiciens subliment ce style de musique, ça n'a rien de demode ou de ringard, c'est l'essence même de la culture musicale U.S, comme le blues et le jazz... Je recommande cet album
La demoiselle Jones a réussi une fois de plus;)
Cet album est réussi et montre bien la diversité des talent de l'artiste, accompagné bien sur d'autres musiciens tel que Richard Julian(guitare, chant)ou bien Lee Alexander(basse)...
Un album qui plonge dans l'ambiance de la veille Amérique.
A posséder ;)

The band is Lee Alexander (bass), Jim Campilongo (electric guitar), Norah Jones (piano, vocals), Richard Julian (guitar, vocals) and Dan Rieser (drums). Here's a list of the songs, whether they're originals or covers (and who popularized them):
"Roly Poly" (Fred Rose cover, Hank Williams popularized)
"I'll Never Get Out of this World Alive" (Fred Rose cover, Hank Williams popularized)
"Love Me" (Leiber/Stoller cover Elvis Presley popularized)
"It's Not You It's Me" (original by Richard Julian)
"Best of All Possible Worlds" (Kris Kristofferson cover)
"No Place To Fall" (Townes Van Zand cover)
"Roll On" (original by Lee Alexander)
"I Gotta Get Drunk" (Willie Nelson cover)
"Streets of Baltimore" (Gram Parsons cover)
"Easy as the Rain" (original by Richard Julian and Jim Campilongo)
"Tennessee Stud" (Jimmy Driftwood cover)
"Night Life" (Breeland/Buskirk/Nelson cover, Willie Nelson popularized)
"Lou Reed" (original by Alexander/Julian/Jones)
The first song is a classic country western, "Roly Poly". The band jumps quickly from bass/thump to guitar and then Norah's piano plays. And Norah and Julian star with their vocals, jumping this number right into the front line.
The second tune "I'll Never Get Out" features Julian's vocals with Norah's back up. Campilongo's guitar shows his gift for handling blues and he sounds like a jazz afficianado
Elvis Presley's popular tune, "Love Me' is the third song. Norah Jones does the lead vocals and Julian supports her. They blend beautifully and make this song their own.
"It's Not You It's Me" is a Julian original song that is as honky tonk as you can get with Norah showcasing her talent in a slower version of this jive.
Kris Kristofferson tune `Best Of All Possible Worlds" is next and this faster pace leads into a frenzied guitar solo, as well as Reiser playing drums and Alexander's bass work. Again Julian's and Norah are the vocals that lead this train driving beat.
One of my favorites, Townes Van Zandts "No Place To Fall" showcases Julian's vocals and features the talents of the entire group.
"Roll On" is another original tune, this one from bass man Alexander. Norah Jones's makes this song her own. Her lovely voice is made for this one.
"Gotta Get Drunk" is a playful delivery that those of us who are fans of Norah Jones have not heard before.
The second Nelson number, "Nightlife," is a solid country blues once more led by Jone's vocals and skill.
"Streets of Baltimore" is another song that belongs on this album. Its pure country sound and made for Julian's vocals.
"Tennessee Stud" is a funny western story song. This tune stands out for its rolling piano and out-of-sight guitar work; its infectious thump and shuffle beat make it a solid country rocker.
The Little Willies rounds up with a couple of originals: the slow ballad "Easy As The Rain" which was penned by Julian and Campilongo, and is a beautiful love song.
The closing track is "Lou Reed," a playful little ditty that has Julian giving his best impression of the fellow New Yorker and rock pioneer. The entire band joins in on vocals and have a blast together, solidifying their "live" sound.
The Little Willies album is a joyous expression of talented musicians coming together to have a good time making music, the way music should be made. Simple and maintaining a loose, live sound that keeps this album moving right along. The entire band is solid. This New York City unit is masterful at what they do. Highly Recommended. prisrob 3-11-06
Whether or not the players took this seriously or not will only be known to them and the production team, but the presentation comes across as if it was just a bunch of talented friends hanging around a studio and having some fun making music.
With a great cover version of one of my absolute favorite Hank songs, the album might have been able to leave one or two songs in the can... but rip the album to an iPod and those songs can be the right breath of fresh air as you're driving. The audio quality and production decisions of the recording should also be noted. Yeah, there are some notes of questionable tuning but the their presentation is so believable the record would not have been served if those notes had been corrected. Matt Marinelli captured the sounds with perfection, and didn't over process or manipulate it later [or so it seems!!].
The record works for me in a big way and I for one am exceptionally happy to own a copy of this recording [a client for whom I'm going to start a project in a few months sent me the copy as a kind of template for the way he'd like his project to come out... if we get 1/2 way there then that is going to be one damn fun project!!].
The music here is quite endearing. I remember listening to Hank Williams' records with "I'll Never Get Out of this World Alive." Hank's classic sound often had a forlorn quality when he sang. The Willies boogie through the tune as if death were quite a party. Townes Van Zandt's high tenor also made you think he was the loneliest man on Earth. On his "No Place to Fall," Richard Julian goes deep and mines the great wistfulness in the melody, "I'm here & I'm gone & I'm forever blue, oh but I'm sure wanting you." Gram Parsons sang "Streets of Baltimore" with Emmylou Harris' angelic backing. With Richard Julian and Norah Jones, the song feels a bit more upbeat with Jones' vibrant piano. The Willies really polish this melody. I keep hitting repeat when it comes on the changer. Other tracks like "Easy As the Rain" & "Roll On" are also outstanding. This is an excellent project from these musicians. The love comes through. Enjoy!
