Saw the JT/CK show when it hit St. Louis last July. In addition to Kooch, Russ Kunkel and Lee Sklar were also part of the band. Except for the impossibly rude group of drunken a-holes, it was a moving musical experience. During Carole's performances, I began asking myself "is she possibly the best American songwriter of her generation? Ahead of folks like Bob Dylan and Brian Wilson?" And JT always puts on a stellar performance having seen him in 2004 (on the Vote for Change Tour w/ the Dixie Chicks) and again in '05 at the New Orleans Jazz Fest.
