If you're wondering, “Z” doesn’t stand for “Zorro” on this album. Like its one-letter title, this CD is a completely surprising album by the band My Morning Jacket. It includes all different kinds of music styles.
The original members of the band come from Louisville, in the US state of Kentucky, and they build their music around the vocals and songwriting talent of front man Jim James. He founded the band with his cousin Johnny Quaid (guitar), Two-Tone Tommy (bass) and Patrick Hallahan (drums). After two of the members left the band because they were on tour too much, Bo Koster and Carl Broemel joined them.
