Death, uncertainty, love, change, hope — grand ideas abound on Rachel Eckroth’s new album When It Falls. As do bold musical statements: Perhaps better known as a jazz keyboardist, Eckroth here evokes the aura of the late David Bowie, experimental rockers Can and perhaps a great, lost David Lynch soundtrack.
“This is an evolution,” admits Eckroth. When It Falls, her third solo release, certainly marks a transformation: Featuring guitarists Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall II, drummers Matt Chamberlain, Gary Novak and Sterling Campbell, and bassist/producer/husband Tim Lefebvre (David Bowie/Tedeschi Trucks Band), the album explores sonic areas far removed from the singer’s early work.
