Lyle Lovett at Bass Concert Hall, 11/23

Lyle Lovett and His Large Band are making their way to Bass Concert Hall in November in celebration of a new album, It’s Not Big It’s Large. Critically acclaimed and reminiscent of Lovett’s Grammy award-winners (of which he has four), It’s Not Big It’s Large combines his usual quirky mix of jazz, confessional rock, folk, and traditional country in a familiar yet refreshing way. To say the albumĀ remains safely within Lovett’s comfort zone is a bit misleading, given that the kind of material within the bounds of his comfort zone is more complex and unique than any CMT favorite. It is this beautiful weirdness, this non-formulaic genre bending that somehow remains true to tradition, that has set Lyle Lovett amongst the Texas songwriting elite. Like ‘His Large Band’ suggests, Lovett also wields a gift for large ensemble orchestration, efficiently and intelligently utilizing support vocals and instrumentation with easy balance and poise.
