Sonny Landreth is a Louisiana-based slide guitar master known for his work with John Hiatt and Britich Columbia's Sue Medley (both make backup vocal appearances here). Like fellow ace Ry Cooder, Landreth's playing sizzles and slashes on his debut solo outing Outward Bound. There's lots of space where what isn't played is just as important as what is. "Back to Bayou Teche" echoes the performer's early days backing some of Louisiana's best known Cajun musicians; aboriginal rhythms grace "Sacred Ground"; commercial pop meets Southern boogie on "New Landlord," and Landreth borrows a lick or two from buddy Hiatt for "Common-Law Love."
