Jennifer Crook – Merry-Go-Round (2011)

Merry Go Round is the new solo album from Bath based English singer/songwriter Jennifer Crook.She’s put together an amazing team to work on this collection, it starts with the production of Boo Hewerdine who brings his acoustic contemporary folk sensibilities to the fore with his gentle balance that shows the songs and arrangements in the best light.  He brings Jennifer’s vocals and lyrics to the fore, but still keeps detail in the backing and a real crispness to the overall sound – it’s the perfect balance for acoustic folk.The musicians providing the backing are some of the finest on the acoustic music scene, with Darrell Scott adding guitar, mandolin and dobro, Eddi Reader backing vocals, Andy May piano, and of course Boo provides a whole range of instrumentation across the disc.  It’s a first rate band, and the overall feeling is laid back, understated and relaxed; and that’s a perfect match for Jennifer’s vocals and lyrics.
