Jessi Colter Sets ‘The Psalms’ To Chords On An Original, Idiosyncratic New Album

he country singer Jessi Colter is best known for her part on the 1976 album “Wanted! The Outlaws” with Willie Nelson, Tompall Glaser and her then husband Waylon Jennings. A few years ago, Colter and Lenny Kaye, who’s best known as the guitarist in Patti Smith’s band, recorded some biblical psalms set to music. They’ve been remixed and are being released now for the first time. Rock critic Ken Tucker has a review of “The Psalms.”
