Just a quick note about Tuesday night's "Under the Covers" musicians and songwriters session. To be sure, it was a warm and wonderful evening spent with old and new friends and filled with songs re-cast and re-told through familair sounds with insightful perspective; John Prine's storied songs came to life, now as visual as they were melodic; the Barenaked Ladies took on a different look, one peppered with a little more experience than the original version's band could lend and somehow, even David Alan Coe seemd a little more personable. To sum it all up, it was a night where the art of the jam session meshed with the art of songs' true spirit-the need to tell a story succinctly, personally and beautifully.
