Performer, songwriter and activist Nellie McKay is set to release Obligatory Villagers (September 25 / Hungry Mouse), the follow up to Pretty Little Head, one of the best-reviewed records of 2006. Like its predecessor, this 9-song odyssey was produced, written and arranged by Nellie – only this time, an ensemble of jazz greats including Phil Woods, David Liebman and Bob Dorough were enlisted to a studio deep in the Pocono Mountains.
