COUNTRY: Traditional Country, EASY LISTENING: Mood Music
This is the 1999 debut album by Birmingham, Alabama vocalist Lauren Kilgore. Recorded and produced by guitarist Jim Ohlschmidt, this 11-song collection presents a variety of styles that showcase the singer's beautiful young voice.
Opening and closing the CD are two Cole Porter selections; ÂMiss Otis Regrets,Â which enjoys a surprisingly swinging, up tempo treatment, and the gorgeous ballad, ÂDo I Love You.Â The haunting Nat King Cole classic ÂNature BoyÂ is performed with only electric guitar and clarinet accompaniment, and Gershwin's timeless ÂSummertimeÂ swings along with guitar, brushes, and superb jazz pedal steel played by none other than Doug Jernigan. Winfield flat picking champion Allen Shadd plays many tasty licks on a bluegrass version of Dolly Parton's ÂJolene.Â
The writing of Lennon and McCartney is represented with a lovely version of ÂYesterdayÂ (which also features Jernigan's pedal steel work), a sexy bossa nova reading of ÂI Will,Â and the ever-popular ÂIn My LifeÂ featuring Alabama Symphony Orchestra cellist Craig Hultgren. On the country side is an acoustic arrangement of Johnny Cash's ÂI Still Miss SomeoneÂ and Allen Reynold's ÂReady For The Times To Get BetterÂ featuring the twin fingerpicking of Jim Ohlschmidt and Lauren's father, Larry Kilgore.
Many other fine Alabama musicians lent their talents to the project, including Gaines Brake (clarinet and saxophone), Keith Knox (piano and keyboards), Bobby Horton (dobro), Jerry Ryan (harmonica), Clyde Kendrick (electric guitar), Chris Wendle (bass guitar), Roy Yarbrough (upright bass), Robbi Podrug (fiddle), Herb Trotman (banjo), Craig Dobbins (Del Vecchio resonator guitar), and Sally White (saxophone).
Recorded at age 18, Lauren's interpretations of these classic songs laid the groundwork for her newest release, ÂToday Is MineÂ featuring more great selections focused on folk-pop, with arrangements, production, and guitar work by Jim Ohlschmidt along with many of the musicians on ÂBefore My Time.Â Both CDs reveal the range and depth of this extraordinary singer.
