Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez are joined by guitar legend Bill Frisell on the new 'Red Dog Tracks,' which will be released May 24 by Back Porch Records. The duo's widely heralded 2003 album, 'Trouble With Humans' found "stunning fiddler turned twangy chanteuse" Rodriguez and Taylor, a writer of "resonant songs," "making some of the most distinctive acoustic music around today" (all NY Times). A pinnacle of his four-decade-plus career, 'Trouble With Humans' earned across the board critical attention. 'Red Dog Tracks' builds on the success of its predecessor, promising to outstrip the duo's past accomplishments. Recorded over three days at New York's Avatar Studios, 'Red Dog Tracks' consists largely of first and second takes, capturing the natural chemistry between the two musicians. In addition to fan favorite "Son of Man," the poetic "Big Moon Shinin'," and the gospel-inspired "Oh Set A Light," 'Red Dog Tracks' includes the duo's spirited takes on Clarence Williams' "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It" and Hank Williams' lonesome "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love With You)." Backed by Jim Whitney (bass), Kenney Wollesen (drums) and Frisell's understated accompaniment, the band perfectly compliments Taylor's poignant songwriting, his earthy singing, and Rodriguez's sultry vocals. A consummate, deft songwriter and a stirring performer, the accomplished Taylor has written a vast catalog of unforgettable songs, including the rock classic "Wild Thing" and soulful country number "Angel of the Morning;" artists as varied as Jeff Beck, Frank Sinatra, and Hank Williams, Jr. have covered the troubadour's tunes. Lucinda Williams told The New York Times, "Chip really knows how to craft a song." Taylor found classically trained fiddle player Rodriguez playing her trade at 2001's South By Southwest Festival. Taylor and initially reluctant songbird Rodriguez have wowed critics, fans, and fellow musicians alike with their exquisite performances. The duo's third album, 'Red Dog Tracks' finds the partners at the top of their game.

One hell of a great CD. This is exactly what Texas music is all about. These two are a terrific combination; Chip's songwriting and backing vocals, and Carrie's lead vocal (unbelievable) and fiddle skills. I can't get this one out of my CD player!
