it is perfect, it is madness

Jason Webley, who is one of the most original and inspired solo artists I know of (a typical performance bounces back and forth between something like the gypsy music scenes in "The Red Violin" or "Chocolat", old-world bar songs, channeling Tom Waits, and a lot of stuff that is purely Jason), has a new album out... the last song, 'Coda', was the recurring theme from his last 'last show ever', which was stunning. You can listen to the whole thing online (streaming somethingorother, needs flash); if you like it, you can order it here.

Jason's touring Europe right now, but he'll be back in the states just in time for the Oregon Country Fair (w000t).
