From Janis: Jim was one of the first musicians I met when I moved to Nashville in 1986. I can't remember where I heard him, but he blew me away. A multi-instrumentalist, he became "first call" when I needed anything out of the ordinary, and he's played everything from harmonica to the floor on my recordings. His interests are so wide-reaching, it's hard to keep up - he and some friends formed the Aqua Velvet project long before anyone thought about retro jazz, he teamed up with Randy Leago to record Hey Everybody, Let's Fall In Love (speaking of a retro title!), and he's played with too many major artists to name here. On a personal note, I try very hard not to be annoyed that The Long Players never did my entire Between the Lines album... but it's difficult, because they're soooo good. 
This New Orleans-inspired version pays homage to many of Jim's heros, and if you watch the video right through to the end, you'll be glad you did! 

BETTER TIMES WILL COME (Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come
 

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come
 

CHORUS 

Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
 

CHORUS 

REPEAT CHORUS 

Oh, better times will come
