Rye Whiskey (Live)
Recording this live set for an arts education fundraiser at Boston's Beacon Theatre, the Speaking Clock Revue consists of a who's who of artists and session musicians with whom T Bone has worked in the past few years (some of the most productive of his career). The lineup -- from Elton John and Jeff Bridges to Ralph Stanley and Gregg Allman -- is diverse and talented. Burnett also roped in some indie talent, including Neko Case and My Morning Jacket's Jim James. There are several highlights here, but the mandolin-tinged version of the Allman Brothers classic "Midnight Rider" is the peak.
