Summary

Should we have been surprised? Bob Dylan himself says no, in his exceptionally useful “Uncut Interview.”2 Indeed, by the time of the release in 2015 of Shadows in the Night, the first in what has become a series of Great American Songbook albums by Dylan, we should have been well past the point of surprise at anything this amazing musical and stylistic chameleon chooses to do.3 (I am not holding my breath for an album of Dylan opera excerpts, but I know better than to make any predictions at this point!)
