Jackson Browne

After two solo live albums, it's easy to forget Jackson Browne's versatility as a musician, which might be boiled down to one key characteristic: He's a great listener. On his first new album in six years, Time the Conqueror, and on its tour, Browne features background vocalists Chavonne Morris and Alethea Mills, both singers from the Los Angeles group Fred Martin & the Levite Camp, which debuted with a wonderful album in 2006. Quiet as it seems to be (though it roars like thunder at times), Time the Conqueror simmers and boils with fresh, remarkable performances by everyone involved — the perfect groundwork for an unforgettable live show.
