    Original score composed by Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman.
    The soundtrack to NBC's hit series Crossing Jordan features rootsy singer/songwriters covering classic rock staples and also lets the show's star, Jill Hennessy, step out on a couple of tunes. Highlights include Sam Phillips' slinky genre- and gender-bending cover of the Beatles' early rave-up "I Wanna Be Your Man," Richard Thompson's slow-burning version of Donovan's "Season of the Witch," Lucinda Williams' dreamy interpretation of Tom Waits' "Hang Down Your Head," and Vic Chesnutt's spare but still unusually cheerful cover of Dylan's "Buckets of Rain." The Holmes Brothers also make a few appearances on the album, lending an eerie, yet rousing spirituality on "You're Gonna Need Somebody on Your Bond" and their cover of Cat Stevens' "Trouble." Hennessy's turns are respectable: on her version of Waits' "You're Innocent When You Dream" and Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," she reveals a pretty, expressive voice with just a tinge of world-weariness; only the slightly anonymous arrangements on her tracks make them of a lesser quality than the rest of the album. Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman's theme for Crossing Jordan and Rosemary Clooney's "Black Coffee" round out this somewhat subdued but still unique album, which is better and more distinctive than the vast majority of soundtracks for TV shows. ~ Heather Phares
