There are guitars, and strings. Amid the swell of sound and anticipation, there is a voice singing along, playing a part. More swells. The Bonnie 'Prince' intones. The Letting Go is an overwhelming undertaking. As mentioned, there are strings - lovely charts that do so much more than just trace chord changes up and down the neck. Arrangements by Ryder McNair and Nico Mulhy are threaded through the record, augmenting a simple quintet of players to provide a sixth sense. The deceptive nature of his band is on display from the top. The Letting Go songs and takes are garlanded by the honest efforts of all these people in an honest effort - as said above, a shared experience, to be shared with you. Antidote and inspiration to life, love, loneliness are sought; laughter is desired. After all this, a set of songs that are lovely and take their turn as a favorite; every day, another one.
