Triskaidekaphilia (The Music Room)

"Triskaidekaphilia" is a fascination with the number 13, and the baker's dozen delivered on local guitar standard Jim Stringer's 13th recording gives just cause. Opening "Rebel Rouser" maneuvers through a primer of classic allusions with T. Jarrod Bonta's piano rolling honky-tonk fire. Most tracks are simple and direct classic country, and Jay & the Americans' "Come a Little Bit Closer" kicks Tex-Mex, but the instrumentals excel.
