Best of 2018 #42: Jessica Lurie – “Long Haul”


Jessica Lurie exists in a very centered place on Long Haul.  Her wry lyricism comes through strong as ever, but the fluid, almost casual way she navigates a transitive path between genres, while never having to shift her balance gives the impression of music orbiting an artist who sits at the center of all things creative.  Previous Lurie recordings have expressed a more distinct point of view, but none to this point have so strongly reflected the cumulative assimilation of those perspectives.

Released on Chant Records.
