Review:

Albert and Gage - Jumpin' Tracks

Christopher Hess

Austin Chronicle      July 11, 1997

"Albert and Gage comprise one of the smartest local pairings on record."

     Christine Albert and Chris Gage comprise one of the smartest local pairings on record - the record being their collaborative Boxcars project "jumpin' tracks". The duo's songwriterly sensibilities mesh seamlessly, as evidenced by the title track and "What Am I To You", in which the easy way their voices slide against each other would seem to indicate they've been doing this together far longer than just one year. ..........Gage's guitar and piano work are always solid, often brilliant, providing an effortlessly genre-crossing backdrop for Albert's gorgeous turns with the folk, soul, and blues that get near-equal countrified attention throughout. *** 1/2
