Smoke Notes

'Balm in Gilead' is an extraordinary collection of emotionally powerful, texturally rich and endearing songs, many of which have been 'incubating' with Jones over the last several decades.

"This record is unique because most of it was written over the last 20 years," she says. "All the other records, I've written in a year or two or three after finishing the previous one. This one has threads from many, many years. Some were just written recently, most were finished recently but started a long time ago. 'Wild girl,' for example, which ended up being about my daughter, was started before 'Flying Cowboys', and it was waiting all these years to finish. For me, the album feels close to a debut, because the only time you ever have to spend all these years writing a song is your first record, right?"

'Balm in Gilead's songs flow easily through its roots and soul fabric; it reflects the lifetime work of a woman, whose very name is a genre. She's joined on the record by Ben Harper, Jon Brion, Vic Chesnutt, Bill Frisell, Victoria Williams and Alison Krauss among other highly talented friends.

Tracks:

1. Lo Lo Lo (The Ballad of Juan Carlos and Tommy Smith)
2. Old Enough
3. Remember Me?
4. The Moon Is Made of Gold
5. Bayless Street
6. On His Jeweled Floor

8. The Blues Are Waiting Till It Gets Dark
9. Wildgirl
10. Bonfires In Hell
