I’ve always found Steve Martin’s love for banjo totally endearing, even if I did used to skip over his “Drop Thumb Medley” on the Comedy is Not Pretty album. He just seems to have a pure love for banjo. Some people do.
Steve Martin’s 3rd album, Love Has Come For You, includes some interesting collaborations.
Edie Brickell, who is, happily, still married to Paul Simon lends a lovely, twangy vocal to Steve Martin’s sweet banjo melodies. I like it. I think I might be getting really into bluegrass music. Some people do.
I also like imagining the easy camaraderie of these two. Imagine the advice Edie would give Steve about raising his new baby.
Listen to the album, here.
