The instrumentation is spare and appropriate, permeated by the electric piano, organ, and harmonica, a breezy stroll through the Civil Rights movement at a level deeper than the political could ever achieve. Miss Martin has a vision, one of oneness with all and she promotes this vision with lyrics like these. She also steers toward the personal, articulating those things we often want to keep toourselves but benefit most from talking about (“Why Do I ? Hide"). The bouquet is distinctly Southern, one that deepens with subsequent listenings. Lyrically, it is a musical biopic of the 21st Century American South-the sticky sensuality and dusty prejudice that endures, never changing. Musically, Hide is the same, but sparingly so, Muscle Shoals and Memphis distilled to the pure essence. The instrumentation and musical arrangements are like the drop of water added to the sacramental chalice-the vehicle for the lyrics to manifest in the aural sea of forgiveness. Hide is a demanding, inventive recording that pays the listener dividends in thoughtful consideration and insight. C.
