I just posted a new blog entry, "The Principal of Uncertainty"

Press

“How country is Abner Burnett? . . . you'd think this was a classical album . . . then you come to gentle acoustic songs . . . sprightly blues . . . late night jazz . . . rugged soul . . . bound together by the quality of Burnett's writing --- intelligent without being self-consciously clever . . .”
