Goodbye Jerry Jeff Walker — we’ve loved you well, and the love doesn’t end here. When you passed in October, the cover of Ridin’ High’s “I Love You” featuring David Pajo was already on our schedule — but now, there's more to feel and say. Hailing from early in JJW’s catalog, “A Letter Sent to Friends” says a bunch all on it’s own, featuring the guitar stylings of Nathan Salsburg, as Bill and the Bonnie ‘Prince’ emote the lyrics with dry eyes, in the name of their own gratitude and admiration. "Little Bird" as well, stops time to appreciate passing beauty; its lovely grace note uncovering loss makes it another sweet farewell, and leaving the onus on the listener — hold yourself together, because after all, you are loved too.
