The sublime singer, a terrific songwriter in her own right, devotes most of the evening to songs her father cherished, country classics that served as her introduction to a deeper, darker world of music when she was a teenager. Accompanied only by her husband, guitarist John Leventhal, Cash cuts right to the heart of these songs -- from "Long Black Veil" to Bobby Gentry's "Ode to Billy Joe" -- without wasting a note.
