There's a languid pace to this material. Touches of accordion add a southwestern flair, & accentuate the desert vibe.
It's a bit odd when I think of this album. I like some material so well, that I think perhaps more highly of it on the whole than I should. On balance, I find quite a bit of the material a bit too smooth (perhaps its the curse of the piano based arrangements). But the material that works for me.... oh, how it works.
