I'm going to restrain myself from the sugary critical ga-ga, say a few quick things about Live From The Ruhr Triennale, then leave you to listen and let the music do the talking.

Fiery and feisty, swinging and ringing loud and clear, the old man and his muse are truly hitting on all cylinders here, and you undoubtedly have to return to any of their earlier duet recordings to hear so natural and unpretentious a pairing of talents and voices as you'll hear on this captivating new disc.

Live From The Ruhr Triennale offers highlights galore, as Taylor and the irrepressible Rodriguez intertwine on Merle's Today I Started Loving You Again; Taylor's quiet gospel Oh Set A Light, Laredo, and Must Be The Whiskey; the duet's ageless Once Again One Day You Will Be Mine and a kick-ass hoedown on Chuck Berry's Maybellene. With Bill Frisell, Greg Leisz, David Piltch, and Kenny Wollesen supplying the driving dynamics and laid back grooves as needed, even Buddy Miller shows up for Wild Thing.
