This new 10-song collection, a mix of originals and covers, tops a sudden whirlwind of activity for the longtime Austin guitar virtuoso. The interpretations on “Collage” are enlightening, from a gorgeous acoustic rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s “One Rainy Wish” to an uplifting update of Stevie Wonder’s “Up Tight (Everything’s Alright)” to a turbocharged take on the Ventures’ surf-rock classic “Pipeline.” (Johnson also tackles the Beatles’ “We Can Work It Out” and the B.B. King hit “Rock Me Baby.”) Five new originals fill out the collection, including the romantic eight-minute epic “To Love You” and “To Whom It May Concern,” an exquisite album-closing instrumental.
