Description
Her roots may be in Texas, but seven-time Grammy nominee Nanci Griffith has come a long way from country, having made albums backed by a symphony orchestra and recorded with international artists like the Chieftains. A singular new facet of her career, Ruby’s Torch finds Griffith performing intimate, cabaret-type songs—but not an array of old chestnuts. The 11 songs include the powerful country ballad “When I Dream,” Jimmy Webb’s touching “If These Walls Could Speak,” three Tom Waits tunes (“Grapefruit Moon,” “Ruby’s Arms,” and “Please Call Me, Baby”), Charles Goodrum’s “Bluer Than Blue,” the bluesy “Drops From the Faucet,” the yearning “Never Be the Sun” by Irish balladeer Donal MacDonagh Long, and the Sinatra classic “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning.” Along with her Blue Moon Orchestra, Griffith also reinvents her own “Brave Companion of the Road” and “Late Night Grande Hotel.”
