Men & Mascara CD review - Men & Mascara
In addition to "Men & Mascara," the ingredient list for this work should also note whisky & beer and pain & suffering as equally essential elements used in the creation of such a consistently sad CD.

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.
