Joe Henry

<b>Joe's blues</b><br>
<br>
Joe Henry is a quiet hero of the Southland, consistently producing fascinating music -- as an artist and a seriously in-demand producer -- from his studio in South Pasadena. For his 11th album, "Blood From Stars," he takes on a deceptively "pure and simple" musical form, the blues, and refashions it in his romantic, noirish way. Inspired by poets like Langston Hughes and Allen Ginsberg, Henry's latest songs cut with a serrated edge and are made bloodier by a great band, including art-rock bigwig Marc Ribot on guitar. Anti- Records releases it Aug. 18.
