With strong songwriting, solid performances and "old school" country flavor, this is a perfect follow-up to 'Cold Roses'. The arrangements and melodies are enchanting, and the album features a haunting duet with Norah Jones.
'Jacksonville City Nights' is the second of an unprecedented three albums Adams is to release in 2005. 'Cold Roses', released in May, received high praise from the press and was considered by many as Adam's finest work as a solo artist. With its strong songwriting, solid performances and "old school" country flavor, 'Jacksonville City Nights' is a perfect follow-up to 'Cold Roses'.
As with 'Cold Roses', 'Jacksonville City Nights' is a full-band offering featuring Adams and The Cardinals, and was produced by Tom Schick. All 14 songs were written and recorded by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals (J.P. Bowersock (electric guitar), Brad Pemberton (drums), Jon Graboff (pedal steel, 12 string guitar, mandolin, tambourine, backing vocals) and Catherine Popper (bass, keyboards, backing vocals). Jacksonville City Nights also features "Dear John", a haunting duet with Norah Jones.
While the songs on 'Cold Roses' found inspiration from such artists as The Grateful Dead and Neil Young, 'Jacksonville City Nights' incorporates some of the finest ingredients of traditional country music. The arrangements and melodies are enchanting, while Jacksonville City Nights also features some of Adams' best vocals on record.
