My Remembrance of You
Like Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent, Jones is a singular voice who chooses art over easy commerce. At 41, the singer-songwriter emerged from a period of retrenchment to release this striking acoustic song-cycle, a minor masterwork of depth and grace. Riding an old-timey vibe that never sounds fussy, and singing in a voice subtly shaded by the high lonesome sound, Jones is an Americana gem. Whether she's limning the despair of a dance-hall girl on "Pretty Girl" or the aching dislocation of a Native American child on "Pony," Jones brings a Haggard- esque sensitivity to these self-penned songs." -Chrissie Dickinson, Chicago Tribune.
