npr--tiny desk concert

Jakob Dylan sings three songs from his about to be released album Women and Country in the office of npr for the employees. Songs are "Nothing but the Whole Wide World", "Everybody's Hurting" and "Holy Rollers for Love". It's ten minutes long and if you listen carefully, there are some mighty good biblical metaphors. (The first song reminded me of Matthew 5:1-11.) The album is produced by award winning T-Bone Burnett, whom I watched forego the mic during the Academy Awards telecast, letting his lesser known collaborator, Ryan Bingham, enjoy the limelight after winning an Oscar for Best Original Song, "The Weary Kind" from the movie Crazy Heart. Actions speak louder than words.

Check it out.
