Jess Klein´s last CD, "City Garden" from 2006 was rewarded with, among other things, 5 stars in Mojo and gained overall very nice critique. Although this CD has received excellent scores in most magazines. For my own taste, I think that the disc is a really safe buy and it is really only one boring track and it´s "Travelin ´man´. Instead, when the disc is good, it is very good. I like very much the quieter songs where her voice becomes more intimate. An example of this is "Bound To Love" is a wonderful track. Other songs that are worth mentioning here is "Before I Go" with a deliciously cool rhythm and the wonderful "Rosalie" by Emmylou Harris would not have done better. And she is pretty much influenced by Emmylou Harris in general but you can also find a lot of Patty Griffin vibe in her music, and there is no bad names to be read in conjunction with. A safe buy if you like these legends.
