The Baby and the Bathwater

by Jefferson Parson

Bold indictment of war, torture, crony capitalism, Guantanamo, this excoriation of such atrocities as Hell-Fire missiles can be heard today as a prescient cry against killer drones, a heartfelt condemnation against militarism in all forms.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jefferson Parson has earned regional acclaim as a new potent force in modern American music and a passionate and captivating voice for peace and justice.
Parson’s debut recording, "The Baby and the Bathwater," a bold and damning indictment of war, the Bush administration, crony capitalism, racism and injustice, eloquently fills the void that exists in modern-day protest songs.
Parson’s second album, "Jefferson’s Laments: For Liberties Taken and Loves Forsaken,” according to music critic Mark S. Tucker of the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange (www.acousticmusic.com) “tears into the heart of several crucial matters…[in] “a non-stop merciless critique of America’s new Dark Age….‘9-1-1’ has a killer rhythm in its earthy basing of angry barroom roister rousing the masses, an infectious recurring theme that gets beneath the skin and initiates a seat butt boogie and tabletop drum bang” [building on the percussive wizardry of John Ewing of Seattle’s Reptet (http://www.reptet.com).]
Bluegrass Legend Peter Rowan, who is currently producing Jefferson’s country-flavored third album, “Hill-Billy Hook,” says: “Jefferson Parson takes no prisoners… he has his hand on the pulse--reminds me of James McMurtry.” A long-time friend from Nashville, Rowan brought in his brothers Chris and Lorin to sing three-part harmonies with him on Jefferson’s recent tribute to Odetta, “The Day Odetta Died” to be featured on the new album due out in 2013.
