Another day another time: celebrating the music of Inside Llewyn Davis

Dave Van Ronk e Dylan“Inside Llewyn Davis” is the title of the movie – released last year here in Italy – directed and written by Joel and Ethan Coen. The film – like at the time we wrote in these pages – is inspired by the life of Dave Van Ronk, a folk singer active in New York in the early sixties. When, that is, Greenwich Village, and all the premises for which it is famous all over the world – and in which he expressed the cream of contemporary artists – was still in the pre-Dylan. Soon, in fact, the songwriter of Duluth will burst into the scene and, like a hurricane, will sweep away everything and everyone. For these reasons – and the fact that the Coens are masters in defining the profile of an original story as subtly dramatic and romantic – the film is crossed by a vague and subtle bitterness, masterfully framed in passion, in efforts to stay afloat and (why not?) in the rough talent of Van Ronk. The Nonesuch Records has now announced the release of a kind of soundtrack of the film, entitled “Another day another time: celebrating the music of Inside Llewyn Davis”. It is a box set consists of two discs, which are channeled music by extraordinary artists of the american folk and indie rock panorama, recorded during the concert that was held in 2013 at New York City’s Town Hall. Among the names that appear in this project must remember: The Avetth Brothers, Joan Beaz, Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, The Milk Carton Kids, Keb ‘Mo’, Punch Brothers, Jack White.
