Working tirelessly since the '70s, Escovedo was in the punk band, the Nuns, then covered post-punk in Rank and File, moved on to the Texas rockers, True Believers and Buick Mackane, and then started a solo career. Those first solo efforts brought him the recognition, underground following and admiration of fellow musicians that he carries to this day.

Playing two songs from his 2012 release, "Big Station," and reaching back to "Man Under the Influence" to complete the set, Escovedo's sound is tight, bright and right. A songwriter with few peers, his songs are both timely and timeless, and the music behind the lyrics covers as wide a swath as the man's career.

Sometimes it is necessary to categorize and label. For those purposes, this session is called Americana and it certainly is that, but America is 3,000 miles and millions of souls deep. Perhaps, in those terms, the label is exactly right.
