Review:
Former Del Fuegos' lead singer Dan Zanes adds to his string of heart-happy family recordings with another idiosyncratic collection of irresistible songs in the folk tradition. Joined by his own young daughter, the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Kronos Quartet, Natalie Merchant and other stellar contributors, Zanes imagines a train ride where “in every car of the train there's music being made,” as well as laughter, jokes, day-dreaming, and above all, the warmth of human connection, the foundation of all of Zanes' work in the genre he has embraced with enthusiasm and integrity.
