Jesse Dayton One for the Dance Halls (Stag)
Inspired by his Thursday residency at the Broken Spoke, Jesse Dayton tackles straight-up country the way he does everything else, with determined energy and well-cultivated taste. Sprinkled among the highly polished honky-tonk, there's a tasty Nick Lowe cover and a sparkling duet with Brennen Leigh. These are Dayton's strongest vocals to date, bringing to mind compadre Johnny Bush, and Warren Hood's fiddle seals the deal.
