Darrell Scott's second solo album, Family Tree, picks up where his debut Aloha from Nashville left off -- that is, it features more of Scott's great writing, singing and playing. The title track in particular captures the album's gritty, moving feel and creative blend of country, folk, bluegrass and jazz. ~ Heather Phares
