As eccentric as the artist himself, Legacy's 2015 compilation The Essential Bruce Hornsby may not give casual fans all the hits they know -- "Mandolin Rain" is, for one, here in a live version, while "Every Little Kiss" is absent altogether -- but this does an excellent job of showcasing Hornsby's range and idiosyncratic taste. There isn't much from the Range here, all things considered: there's more from his rangier new millennial band the Noisemakers, plus duets with Ricky Skaggs, jams with jazzbos Jack DeJohnette and Christian McBride, not to mention Grateful Dead covers and a bit of classical music to boot. It's a lot to shoehorn onto one collection but it definitely shows Hornsby's versatility, as well as how he's gotten looser (and possibly better) as he's moved further away from the charts. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
