|What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).|

|The Little Willies / The Little Willies|
As much as I admire
Jones as a performer, I find a little of her goes a long way.
Which is why I was surprised by The Little Willies, an album
that she and four friends made from their performances at a club
in New York called the Living Room. Jones manages not to stand out
quite so much, here among the bluesy country songs. Wait, that's not
right either; she's still up front, and she's just as distinctive.
Maybe it's the greater variety that makes the difference: sometimes
she's lead, sometimes not. Or maybe her voice takes on a different
timbre when she's in a country frame of mind. Whatever the reason, I
find myself liking The Willies.
(I almost said something about getting the willies, but I'd never abuse a pun like that. Never.)
