Quick Take: Steve Martin and Edie Brickell – “Love Has Come for You”

Who’s the comedian on this album?

Steve Martin has musical chops, but does he own one too many pairs of wacky socks to pull off an album of banjo tunes (Rounder Records, $14)? The comedian, author, and bluegrass musician has teamed with Edie Brickell, whose breathy singing and witty lyrics have just enough charm to let us appreciate his plucking. This is Martin, after all, so beneath the rootsy vibe, there’s a persistent sense of humor.
