Product Notes

'David Bankston is one of the top five songwriters in America, surrounding our lyric traditions and then transcending them with songs older than you will ever be. Being a tall teller of truths, he invents nothing but the images that burst from the depths of the Southern mind. And it's all wrapped in melodies that are not forgotten. Modern songwriters write from the peaks of passion, but Bankston lures you from the valleys, those deceptive places of shadows where strange things float by on the rivers, and the sun goes down very early.' Sam Broussard David Bankston is back with another solo album. As usual he records with the very best players. Along with his seamless, masterful vocals, the CD features slide guitar wizard and fellow Louisianian, Sonny Landreth, on three cuts, a rhythm section anchored by six string fretless electric bass virtuoso Steve Bailey, tenor saxophone prodigy, Stephen Riley, and beautiful acoustic guitar work by Sam Broussard. The songs are a mix of jazzy Americana, bluesy standards, and sophisticated contemporary folk. As always, Bankston's heart is never far from home, Louisiana. At first hearing his style may not be exactly what has come to represent Louisiana music, but if you listen you will hear the land and the people. The melodies obey the lyrics. You will find both very interesting.
