CD Review: Tim O'Brien And Darrell Scott Reunite For First Studio Album In 13 Years

It has been 13 years since the last time Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott teamed to make a studio album of original material. Finally, the two have come together to put their talents together to create the new release, "Memories And Moments." The new album was produced by Scott and will be available on September 17 through the newly formed Full Skies label.
 
The two waste no time getting down to business on the O'Brien penned "Time To Talk To Joseph" and the Scott original "It All Comes Down To Love." They come together for the bluegrass/country history lesson of "Keep Your Dirty Lights On," then invite fellow singer/songwriter John Prine to sing along one the Prine-penned "Paradise." O'Brien and Scott show off their harmonizing on the opening of the all-too-short "Just One More," then tells us the story of "Fiddler Jones." The highlight of the album has to be the passion shown in their performance of the Hank Williams' classic "Alone And Forsaken." The album finishes up with the gentle sound of "Free Again" and the country-gospel sing-along "On Life's Other Side."
 
Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott will be hitting the road on September 20, beginning with the American Music Festival in Nashville, TN. The tour will last into the new year, be sure to check out timanddarrell.com for dates near you.
