Eve Goldberg
A Kinder Season
Borealis

By Paul-Emile Comeau

Published September 28, 2007

A Kinder Season is Toronto-based folksinger Eve Goldberg’s third CD, her second on the Borealis label, as well as the second to be produced by Ken Whiteley. That last fact is not an inconsequential detail, considering Whiteley’s reputation for bringing out the best in artists such as Goldberg. Besides playing half a dozen instruments himself, Whiteley also hired some notable musicians from the Toronto scene. “Been In The Storm,” the lead-off track, is an original based on an African- American spiritual, while “One In A Million” is a heartfelt tribute to the singer’s father, who also happened to die of a disease that kills one in a million. “Leaving Nova Scotia Blues” is a nostalgic tune that features Goldberg’s adept picking on banjoguitar. Several other songs fl irt with bittersweet blues and torchy jazz, not to mention bluegrass and ragtime. It’s that kind of eclecticism that makes A Kinder Season Goldberg’s strongest album yet.
