    It's ironic that Buckley's most fully realized album wouldn't be released until after his death, but it's logical that it would turn out to be a live recording. Buckley was always a "natural musician" who flourished in settings of spontaneity where he was free to follow his muse unbounded. While he made many excellent albums, the confines of the studio fettered him enough to keep him from giving 100 percent. As this and other live Buckley albums prove, the singer's live performance took him and his audience to another level entirely.
    Captured here in his most creatively fertile period (circa BLUE AFTERNOON/HAPPY SAD), Buckley puts his superman voice to good use, scatting, moaning, crooning and wailing as the moment requires. His jazzy backing band, including longtime guitarist Lee Underwood and drummer Art Tripp, provides a nimble, responsive landscape for Buckley's voice to prowl. From the ethereal tones on the folk-jazz samba "Blue Melody" to his animalistic groans and cries on the show-stopping "Gypsy Woman," LIVE AT THE TROUBADOUR presents one of the world's finest singers at the top of his game.
