Album Notes
Personnel: Eva Cassidy (vocals, acoustic guitar); Keith Grimes (electric guitar); Marcy Marxer (guitar, bouzouki, whistle); Lenny Williams (piano, organ); Chris Biondo (bass); Raice McLeod (drums).Recorded between 1989 & 1995. Includes liner notes by Martin Jennings.After seven posthumously released and well-received records, the tragic story of Eva Cassidy has passed into the realm of cult legend. The notoriously shy D.C.-area performer with the most powerfully gentle voice could render any song, no matter how well-known, no matter how frequently turned to by other singers, into her own. In fact, this eighth release, AMERICAN TUNE, contains a reworking of perhaps the most covered song of all time, the Lennon-McCartney ballad "Yesterday," and despite thousands of versions, she discovered a new interpretation hidden within the folds of the familiar. At this point, it's practically impossible to disassociate "God Bless The Child" from Billie Holiday's original, and many have added their own takes, but Cassidy's voice earnestly and artfully rolls over the tune and a new angle emerges. Most remarkable about AMERICAN TUNE is despite the diversity of the sources, her voice forges a discernable, undeniable thread between songs; Cassidy is as comfortable with soul as traditional folk, pop as jazz, and her irreplaceable voice could wrap around just about any song. Usually, by this point, the well of a talent that passed so young would have long been tapped, but Cassidy proves so strong that her music seems inexhaustable, and AMERICAN TUNE rises far above pastiche into a stunning, consistent album of its own.

I really like CD's that every time you play them something new reaches out and grabs you. American Tune is such an Album.
It's my belief that Eva only recorded a track if she felt that she could do it justice, put her stamp on it and bring a fresh interpretation to the original composition.
Most of the recordings on this CD were made in one take and have only recently been discovered. They all show her talent and that of Keith Grimes and Chris Biondo.
Forget the artificially produced unpluggeded version that other Artists put out this is UNPLUGGED in it's true and natural state.
A couple of the tracks like True Colours and Yesterday you will enjoy straight off because of their familiarity BUT the beauty of this album is that Eva introduces you to her musical favourites and influences.
My favorite at the moment is Dark Eyed Molly with Keith Grime's haunting tin whistle. Eva heard this Fairport Convention song back in 1990 and immediately wanted to record it. She has taken it to another level and I hope that it will get people asking who Fairport are and get them to search out the group and their distinctive sometimes raunchy English Folk.
This is I believe what Eva has left behind not only a great interpretation of other artists work but a SIGN POST to other artists.
In contrast to Dark Eyed Molly the her version Duke Ellington's It Don't mean a thing(If it ain't got that swing) really bounces along and lets her show off another dimension to and control of her voice and Bruno Nasta's violin is a joy to listen to.
Dan Cassidy picks up the violin for Yesterday whilst Lenny Williams give a tremendous piano performance accompanying Eva's voice and guitar playing on the Beatle's classic.
The Album finishes off with 'You Take My Breathe Away' written by English singer and songwriter Claire Hamill a song that she used to perform at weddings and a lovely track to conclude the album.
I must have been playing the album on and off now for about three weeks and each time I do a different track stands out.
I would recommend that you buy for your collection for the simple reason that no matter what mood you are in there will always be a track that you can put on to either compliment or alter.
