ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

This is Boyd's sixth release, but first live cd.

REVIEW: By Aaron Bragg, The Local Planet, published 2/28/02

Jim Boyd with Alfonso Kolb
LIVE AT THE MET
Thunderwolf Records

There are few Truths in the arts world--the sort of philosophic maxims that simply cannot be denied. One of these is that real musicians tend to shine in a live setting. In fact, there are those whose live performances often eclipse what are otherwise outstanding studio albums. Jim Boyd is one of those artists.

LIVE AT THE MET, which partners Boyd with Alfonso Kolb on percussion, captures on plastic a pretty good-sized chunk of a November 2001 concert. In an appearance that was as much self-depreciating as it was brilliant, Boyd was equal parts singer/songwriter and reluctant activist--an endearing combination that takes the edge off for nervous white folks.

For those for whom it matters, Boyd is considered a practitioner of the Native American Contemporary genre, mostly because he's an Indian who plays music that isn't exactly traditional (though his turn on cedar flute for "Quest" leaves no doubt that his "traditional" chops are equally honed). Indeed, a more accurate description might be Indian-influenced acoustic folk-rock with a hint of blues and transcendent spirituality, which is why it's uninitiated a glimpse into Boyd's recording career, and fans something of a stripped-down, bare-bones "Greatest Hits" collection. LIVE AT THE MET is Jim Boyd as he should be heard.

Magical!
It's my third cd by Jim Boyd...and yes, there is something magical about this one being a "live recording". I didn't knew all the songs played during this concert and I discovered some great others like "Mother Tears", "Manipulation", "Time Time Time", with really meaningful lyrics. I like it!! Jim Boyd is a so gifted artist!I do love the way he sings and I particulary enjoy the way he does here with the songs "Highway High", "No Way", "I'll be there", "Filtered ways" and "Her song" which are among my favorite.
I hope I'll get the chance to see him on stage someday in Switzerland or maybe in France. I imagine being there myself singing "Unity" with him, like all his fans enjoying it so much "At The Met"!

Very enjoyable album all the way through!
Live at the Met was a great purchase! I'm so happy with this CD - I can just listen to it over and over. After hearing Her Song on thunderwolfmusic.com I knew I had to hear more. I really love the song Unity, absolutely beautiful. I hope I can see Jim Boyd live someday.

Shelly Phillips

I LOVE JIM BOYD!
I love this CD because it is live. If you haven't heard Jim in concert you haven't heard Jim's music. There is something incredible about this live CD, I can't stop listening to it. I love Highway High it's my favorite.

Debra Chilton

This is a great CD. I can't recommend it highly enough.
I have listened to this CD probably 10 times the first few days after I received it. The music is wonderful. The songs are thought provoking. A great CD that I highly recommend.
