July 27 — RHAPSODY, Alejandro Escovedo (2001)

IMG_1913Larry Brown and Alejandro were mutual fans and admirers. This album came out at the same time as Brown’s “Billy Ray’s Farm,” so they partnered for a promotional tour. They traveled to cities with both strong literary and music communities — Chicago; Austin; Lexington, Ky.; Oxford, Miss. — for joint performances that blended reading and song. What a terrific idea. I’d love to have seen it.
