Lyle Lovett Lyle Lovett And His Large Band on LP + Download
Singer/composer Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans over a dozen albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today.
1989's Lyle Lovett And His Large Band is the accomplished artist's gold certified third studio release following Lyle Lovett (1986) and Pontiac (1988), a nuanced and well crafted 12-song stunner which shuffles magnificently between a number of different styles including swinging jazz, country-folk, blues and soul.
1990 Grammy Award-winner for Best Male Country Vocal Performance, the proceedings include a spirited take on Clifford Brown's "The Blues Walk," a fine selection of Lovett originals like "What Do You Do/The Glory of Love," "Good Intentions" and "I Married Her Just Because She Looks Like You," plus a stirring cover of Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man" which was later featured in the soundtrack to the 1993 film The Crying Game.
