Music Critic: Colin Morris

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:10 pm on 5 July 2017

On-line music dealer, critic and avid record collector Colin Morris has a couple of new albums worth a listen and plays a track off each for Jesse. Lou Doillon is the daughter of actor Jane Birkin and half sister to Charlotte Gainsbourg, also an actor. From her mother, Lou has inherited a slightly androgynous look that has spawned a thousand fashion covers in France. Her debut album "Lay Low" is somewhat reminiscent of Marianne Faithfull or Patti Smith with it's tales of missed opportunities and bad decisions. Henry Saint Clair Fredericks and Kevin Roosevelt Moore team up for Colin's second choice today. The pair are better known as American blues legends Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo' and the slick production and song choices on this album may surprise many.
