Released:
Label: 2nd Story Sound Records
More tribute albums should be as adventurous as High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. Instead of simply recording a handful of Charlie Poole classics, Wainwright goes for broke and mixes in a nearly equal number of original compositions inspired by the old-time icon. He also adds samples of Poole's scratchy, old recordings. Because he so clearly loves this music, Wainwright's performances are passionate, lively and filled with a reverence that's never overbearing.
