Elvis Costello & the Sugarcanes
Multiply Almost Blue with King of America, add pieces of an unfinished "chamber opera" about Hans Christian Andersen's infatuation with singer Jenny Lind, and divide by producer T-Bone Burnett to arrive at the secret formula behind Costello's solid new album of masterfully massaged Americana, Secret, Profane and Sugarcane. The Sugarcanes are Jerry Douglas (dobro), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Mike Compton (mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion), and Dennis Crouch (double bass).
