Bob Warren & Joy MacKenzie's CD, "You Taught Me Something New Today", puts the spotlight on the voices. In a spare setting of acoustic guitar, bass and simple percussion, the two singers shine; alone and in harmony. The songs cover many years of Bob's writing. There are some old favorites in new arrangements and some great new songs. Tony Markellis ably supports Bob & Joy on bass and percussion. Recorded at Bob's own home studio, this will particularly please those who love music in its most intimate and human guise.
