We gave it a B+

A half-hour commercial for Hiatt’s new album, Stolen Moments, but what a commercial: Hiatt strums an acoustic guitar and sings a number of first-rate songs from his album, tunes about commitment and family, trust and romance. Between performances, he talks easily about creativity (”I’ve been writing songs since I was 11; by now there’s a quarter-century of mediocre-to-good songs that wouldn’t exist without me”) and about what it’s like to be a rocker living and recording in Nashville (”The secret of this town is, country-music people love rock & roll”). Modest and charming, Hiatt isn’t a colorful rock artist, just a good one. B+
