Synopsis

Amazon.com
Sometimes an artist's gifts lie in his ability to hide those gifts from his listeners. Such is the case with Jody Stecher, the talented veteran of traditional folk music. He's an adept picker on a number of instruments, a moving and authoritative singer, and a discerning song scout, but that's not what you think when listening to his albums. What you do think is simple: "Gee, this sounds great." This collection brings together most of the material from two topnotch 1970s records, Going Up On the Mountain and Snake Baked a Hoecake, including his first-ever duet with wife and singing partner Kate Brislin among its many highlights. Stecher sounds completely natural, unaffected, and genuine throughout. Bringing together elements of old-time and bluegrass, Stecher lets the music come to him--not bad for a Brooklyn boy. --Marc Greilsamer
