• a.j. croce Twelve Tales (LP, £15.75)

    Pop and roots music scion A.J. Croce, the son of legendary singer-songwriter Jim Croce, has been working on a collection of 12 new songs over the last year, recording two at a time with different legendary producers in cities across the US. Sessions took place in Los Angeles with Tony Berg (Fiona Apple, Bob Dylan) and Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Los Lobos); in Nashville with the late “Cowboy” Jack Clement (Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash); in Stamford, CT, with five-time GRAMMY-winner Kevin Killen (Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel); in New Orleans with Allen Toussaint (Dr. John, Paul McCartney); and with Greg Cohen (Tom Waits, John Zorn) in New York City. “Twelve Tales is turning out to be the most unique and challenging album I’ve made to date,” says Croce of the project. “Each producer brings a new unique dimension, and traveling around the US to record with all these talented players is a real treat. This project is like a musical jigsaw puzzle without a box. I won’t see the full picture until the last song is completed.” Tracks: Right on Time / Always and Evermore / Rollin On / What is Love / Tarnished and Shining / Make it Work / Disc 2: Call of Love / Easy Money / Momentary Lapse of Judgement / Keep the Change / Venus and Adonis / The Time is Up
