Review by John Noyd
April 2011

A warm bath of bluesy acoustic new-age jazz and sharply focused, contemporary folk furnishes lush comfort for topical anthropologist and mystical lyricist Bruce Cockburn’s thirty-first recording. Wrestling reflective hindsight on a tarp of karmic musings, “Small,” imparts decades of open-eyed experience inside songs of jaunty confidence. Light swipes and sly delights infiltrate an album that includes five wonderfully woven instrumentals; a nice departure for a man whose powerful images and thought-provoking observations have often overshadowed an incredibly sensitive musician. A subtly humble affair, Bruce produces ambling jigs preceding mellow meditations, dream-weaving fodder disguising solemn homilies around hard-won relevancy in an increasingly disposable world. Cockburn, travelling this time around with a full band, performs May 21st at Madison’s Barrymore Theater before heading to Chicago and Minneapolis
