Reed Wallsmith: Blue Cranes make a masterpiece / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #318

By TOM D'ANTONI // After a long wait, the new Blue Cranes album is out and it's magnificent. Individual vocal collaborations. Reed Wallsmith talks about it. Track at the end.

The Blue Cranes have a new album. That news is enough to make fans happy, but that’s not all… it is called Voices, individual collaborations with vocalists Holland Andrews, Edna Vazquez and Luz Elena Mendoza, Rebecca Sanborn, Laura Gibson, Peter Broderick, Gavin Castleton, Redray Frazier, Annalisa Tornfelt and Laura Veirs.

It’s the best thing I’ve heard in years. Magnificent. A masterpiece.

And if you know me, you know I don’t throw those words around lightly

Blue Cranes’ Reed Wallsmith is in the Artichoke Café with me.
