A Place to Land
The many, many-times-over award-winning Kristyn Harris has a new release, so obviously the rush will be on to get it!
Always surrounded nowadays with top players, Ms. H’s retinue this time includes such luminaries as Devon Dawson, Haley Sandoz, Jason Roberts, Floyd Domino and Rich O’Brien to name(drop) a few!
The theme of this collection circles around the concept of returning to recharge in comfortable places before venturing forth renewed. “Comfortable places” can be found in certain obligatory swingers and standards included (“Roly Poly,” “Along The Navajo Trail” and her yodel showpiece this time “Texas Plains”). All get top treatments. CD picks include Kristyn’s swinging original title track “Place To Land,” Canadian Corb Lund’s “Cows Around,” her take on Michael Martin Murphey’s “Wildfire” and her own “Tail To The Wind.”
Kristyn Harris is one of the performers who can be relied upon to deliver the goods, and she does it here in spades. Twelve tracks, highly recommended.
CD: $20 + $3.50 s/h through www.kristynharris.com or from Kristyn Harris, PO Box 823092, North Richland Hills, TX 76182.
