Alison Krauss; Austin City Limits, Sept 23, 2005

I like posting shots here because the only criterion is whether I think there’s something out of the ordinary about the shot, or the person, or both…It’s up to me, period. I love finding quality in places I don’t expect and watching it manifest through the unfolding of time. Alison Krauss is pure elegant quality. She’s also unexpectedly funny. She is, as H Ross Perot used to say, “World Class”. I like to think of her as a great bandleader in the tradition of Bob Wills…her band, Union Station, is the cream of musicianship personified. She doesn’t compromise. She’s one of the very best. …and her current musical partnership with Robert Plant is unexpectedly great, too…What can’t she do? I don’t know…..
