Flutter and Wow is foremost a testament to his ability as a tune-smith, but also reveals a deep understanding of works from other notable practitioners of the craft. Produced by Norah Jones collaborator Adam Levy, the record is a paragon of tastefulness, showcasing Wood’s broad musical palate, brooding lyrical prowess, and prodigious abilities as a stylist. It features breathtaking originals from the Memphis-based key specialist, plus covers from artists like Costello, Waits, and Cohen. His interpretations demonstrate a deep appreciation for these songs and an unpretentious refusal to generate either cleverly perverse arrangements or carbon copies.
Flutter and Wow is distributed in the UK, Italy, and Spain via Proper Distribution. Available at Amazon.com, iTunes and autographed copies are available at Archer Records.
