Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Collective Concerts presents
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's new album, The Nashville Sound, is a beautiful piece of American music-making. For the first time since 2011's Here We Rest, Isbell's band, the 400 Unit, gets title billing.This album is a call, and the songs on it send sparks flying into a culture that's already running so hot the needle on the temperature gauge is bouncing erratically in the red.
As with Isbell's 2013 breakthrough, Southeastern, and his double-Grammy-winning follow up, 2015's Something More Than Free, The Nashville Sound was produced by Dave Cobb. Isbell says that he and Cobb created a simple litmus test for the decisions they made in the two weeks they spent at RCA Studios (which was known as "The home of the Nashville Sound" back in the '60's and '70s)
