Review – Carolyn Martin
“Wild West Texas Wind”

With the recent passing of Dayna Wills, it’s legitimately arguable that Carolyn Martin may now stand as the preeminent female voice in contemporary Western Swing. She certainly is universally respected in the genre. It simply gets no better! Plus, with this release, she may have added a couple of new standards into the catalog: Carolyn’s title track co-write with Nora Jane Struthers “Wild West Texas Wind” and a Carolyn Martin/Mike Ross collaboration called “You Can’t Take Texas Out Of The Girl.”
There’s so much fun to be had in the song “The Day The Bass Players Took Over The World” that they decided to offer it in two different versions!

The collection features many crowd favorites, and there are enough boot-scootin’ two steps in the mix to keep dancers happy running the album track to track. A team of twenty fine musicians kick the project up just that much higher! Additional picks include the wacky Paul Kramer novelty “Yodeling In My Sleep,” “Cry Me A River,” “Detour,” “South Of The Border” and “Wayward Wind.” Highly recommended. Sixteen tracks.
