SATURDAY, AUGUST 13

LYLE LOVETT & HIS LARGE BAND

It may seem hard to believe, given the current country music landscape, but some thirty years ago, Lyle Lovett's quirky, irony-laden blend of country, blues, folk, and jazz produced a long string of Top 40 country hits. But even if the lanky Texan with the intimidating pompadour turned out not to be the harbinger of things to come in Nashville, his idiosyncratic style still seems just as crafty and cool as ever—maybe even more so. Lovett's Large Band will provide plenty of bluesy, swinging ballast for their boss man's excursions into his stunning bag of songs, now three decades deep. Lovett's own material has been in regrettably short supply on the majority of his albums since the late nineties, but with that crushed-velvet voice of his, the cover tunes can be just as much of a joy as his own compositions. —Jim Allen
