WTTS OverEasy, January 15, 2012

If you are desiring some new music from Norah Jones, here’s something to tide you over.

Norah rejoins ex-boyfriend, bassist Lee Alexander, on a new album from side project the Little Willies called For the Good Times.  Barring one new song from band member Jim Campilongo, the rest of the album mostly mines territory familiar to fans of the prior Little Willies album from a few years ago, which is the ensemble’s common affection for vintage country music.  The band touches on the catalogs of Ralph Stanley,  Lefty Frizell and three of the Highwaymen (Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson), and tops it all off with covers of songs made famous by Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton.

Check out the latest from the Little Willies, this Sunday with Todd Berryman on OverEasy, 7 to 11am AND pm, on 92.3 WTTS.

    Love, love, love the tunes that were played about 8:40 to 9:15 am this morning. I could not find one particular song. Sounded like Norah Jones. Something about getting in a Cadillac and going to a honky tonk. Sounded very much like a June Carter Cash style of song with Johnny Cash. Could you help me track this song down? Thanks!

    That’s from a Norah Jones side project called The Little Willies, and the album is For the Good Times. What you heard was either their version of “If You’ve Got the Money, I’ve Got the Time” if you heard it between the times above – if it was a little later (say, 9:45-ish or so) it was “Wide Open Road” from the same album. (I think the latter.) Glad you liked it! -tb.

    If it was a female vocal and bluegrass-sounding, it was Alison Krauss’ version of “I Will” from her album Now That I’ve Found You: A Collection. If it was a male vocal and kinda jazz or big band-sounding, it was Paul McCartney’s take on “Get Yourself Another Fool” from his forthcoming album, Kisses on the Bottom, which will be out in early February. Surprising, no? -tb.
