O’s Notes: Drummer Billie Davies leads a trio with guitarist Daniel Coffeng and bassist Adam Levy. They put the session together in Napa Valley, a fitting setting to Davies’ remembrance of her gypsy life in France. It is a rather abstract set but not so much that you can’t follow the music nor does it require painkillers! Each of the musicians has a distinct melodic bent that is coherent for the cerebral listener. 12 Volt is a notch above Billie’s last recording and true to form.
