Since 1985, the Jayhawks have treated us to their 70s folk-infused Americana; a roots sound that dares to dabble in power pop. In its early days, Gary Louris and Mark Olson’s band juggled with different influences such as Gram Parsons, Byrds, CSN&Y, Tom Petty and even Big Star… Since then, they’ve grown a few grey hairs, but their talent remains intact. In 2016, Paging Mr. Proust revived the values of their first albums. After leaving and rejoining several times, Olson once again left the fray, leaving Louris to humbly pick up the songwriting torch. Without Olson, the Jayhawks leant closer to pop than folk, which Paging Mr. Proust showed in 2016… This time around, Gary Louris integrates the ideas and compositions of his bandmates Karen Grotberg, Tim O’Reagan and the other survivor from the band's early days, Marc Perlman. He even hands over the microphone on some tracks. Jayhawks is a band after all, so why not act like one! Such an approach stimulates their melodic creativity (Homecoming) and style, as heard on some more melancholic acoustic tracks (Living in a Bubble and its Kinks/Harry Nilsson melody) and heavier electric ones (Dogtown Days). Bitter Pill, a very Jayhawks sounding track, has country flavours à la Flying Burrito Brothers, luxurious vocal harmonies and powerful choruses fit for campfires or dinner parties. A classic and confident record. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Hi-Res
Since the outset, the Jayhawks have thrown themselves heart and soul into resurrecting an alternative country music fed on Seventies folk. It's a rootsy soundtrack which allows itself a few nods at power pop. The concept of Americana was in vogue back in the early 1990s, and the group of Gary Louris and Mark Olson were spearheading it. They were armed with the legacy of Gram Parsons, the Byrds, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Tom Petty and even Big Star… some albums and some years later, they were greying a little around the temples but their talent was still intact. In 2016, the album Paging Mr. Proust neatly rejuvenated the group's genetic makeup. After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, Mark Olson quit again, but Louris stood in fantastically as a songwriter. Without Olson, the Jayhawks started showing more of their power-pop side than their folk side. And that tendency was confirmed on Paging Mr. Proust… With Back Roads And Abandoned Motels, Gary Louris hasn't really brought out a new album. But whatever. With his bandmates, he is offering up two new songs which he has rounded out with compositions written or co-written for old albums by Natalie Maines, the Dixie Chicks, Jakob Dylan, Ari Hest, Scott Thomas, Carrie Rodriguez, the Wild Feathers and Emerson Hart. It's an odd exercise (the material is a patchwork) but it's anything but stupid (the quality is very real), and it allows him to perform his own versions with perfect freedom. This is an offering from the Jayhawks which brings us back to their country rock and folk roots. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Released in 1992, Hollywood Town Hall wasn't a hit, but it received enough rave reviews to considerably raise the Jayhawks' profile, and it certainly heightened expectations for their next album. On 1995's Tomorrow the Green Grass, the Jayhawks found themselves in the tricky situation of trying to match the quality of Hollywood Town Hall without simply repeating themselves, and they came remarkably close to achieving that daunting task. Rather than simply mimic the warm and unaffected sound of Hollywood Town Hall, the Jayhawks reached for a broader and more eclectic approach on Tomorrow the Green Grass; with the presence of new keyboard player Karen Grotberg and the addition of strings on several tracks, the album certainly sounded fuller and more artful, but Mark Olson and Gary Louris' harmonies were still the band's secret weapon, and were as pure and emotionally compelling as ever, while Louris' electric guitar solos gave the songs real rock & roll muscle without disturbing the essentially gentle nature of their music. And the best songs on Tomorrow the Green Grass are every bit as good as anything on Hollywood Town Hall, especially the opening hat trick of "Blue," "I'll Run Away," and "Miss Williams' Guitar" (the latter a joyous love letter to Olson's new bride, Victoria Williams). But while nearly every song on Hollywood Town Hall seemed like a classic in context, the greater stylistic variety of Tomorrow the Green Grass had the consequence of making a few of the songs in the second half of the album seem less than essential, most notably "Ann Jane" and "Pray for Me," though they hardly counted as disappointments, and the album rallies to a rousing finale with "Ten Little Kids." If Hollywood Town Hall is inarguably the Jayhawks' best album, Tomorrow the Green Grass runs a very close second, and though it was to be the group's last album with Mark Olson, the eclectic approach pointed the way to the sound and style of the fine records the Louris-led version of the band would go on to make. © Mark Deming /TiVo

Het reüniealbum van Mark Olson en Gary Louris, Mockingbird Time, met mede-Jayhawks Marc Perlman, Karen Grotberg en Tim O’Reagan is met gemak het sterkste en meest gefocuste album sinds hun meesterwerk Hollywood Town Hall (1992). Sterker nog, Mockingbird Time, nog meer dan Tomorrow the Green Grass, klinkt als de langverwachte opvolger van die geweldige plaat. Nooit krijg je het idee dat de Jayhawks lukraak hun begin jaren 90 sound proberen na te bootsen. Het huiselijke, fijnbesnaarde samenspel tussen Olson en Louris, de manier waarop Grotbergs keyboards Louris zijn gruizige doch fijngevoelige gitaargeluid complementeert, en de ondergeschoven kracht van Perlmans bas en O’Reagans drumwerk en de elementaire, emotionele kracht van het geheel doen allemaal sterk denken aan het bescheiden vakmanschap van Hollywood Town Hall. © Mark Deming /TiVo
