Making Lovely Music

For Mary Chapin Carpenter fans, her new album will be released tomorrow (April 27)—The Age of Miracles. The more she records, the more gentle and introspective her music becomes. Her songs seem to reflect her non-concert, non-touring, living-on-her-Virginia-farm-with-husband-and-dogs lifestyle. On Amazon's page for the album is a lovely video shot in the studio as she recorded "I Have a Need for Solitude" from the new album. For all of us wanna-be musicians who would trade a year at the desk for a day in the studio, it doesn't get much nicer than this video -- MCC on guitar, plus percussion, bass, and piano. Besides being a great singer-songwriter, Carpenter handles her gorgeous Huss and Dalton 00-SP with aplomb.
