I’ve been out of the Jake loop for a couple years now. Around the time that Live came out I saw several of his shows and was thoroughly blown away like most people. But then starting with Peace, Love, Ukulele it started to seem like he’d found a formula and was riding it as his stardom grew. Meh. I wasn’t too into it. But now it looks like the innovative Jake that I love is back!
His new project is called Nashville Sessions and is due out today. The live and spontaneous approach to this record sounds very promising and I look forward to getting to listen through the CD.
For now though, this is a very cool piece published on Youtube a couple days ago called Blue Haiku.
