Spectacle: Elvis Costello with...


Troy Patterson

On the first 13 installments of his TV talk show and musical showcase, Costello chats up veteran pop stars (Elton John), rootsy singer-songwriters (Jenny Lewis), and genuine divas (Renee Fleming, Bill Clinton). After powering through a cover of a guest's work at the top of an episode — a sighing take on Lou Reed's "Femme Fatale" stands out — the host settles into a chair, wincing at his clipboard, and launches an intimate and unpretentious conversation. The artists — rhapsodizing about their influences, tinkling and strumming to make points about songcraft — emerge as a cuddly bunch, even Reed, who turns up, as always, with his skin looking like papyrus and his wit drier yet.
