Picks and Pans Review: Alan Jackson

Like Red on a Rose

Jackson turned to bluegrass star Alison Krauss to produce his latest disc, and the result is an entertaining change of pace that synthesizes the talents of both. While Jackson never really seems as frolicsome here as he normally does, instead folding himself into Krauss's more cerebral, sometimes somber style, the twain meet nicely on "Good Imitation of the Blues," a ruminative tune enhanced by the artful piano of Gordon Mote. Elsewhere, the brighter-toned "A Woman's Love" and "As Lovely as You" give you a whiff of Jackson's more energetic, romantic side.
