Music: Ryan Adams to play Disney Hall this weekend

February 16, 2012

Beyond Ryan Adams' well-documented personal life — his marriage to Mandy Moore; his battle with the hearing disorder Ménière's disease — lies the fleshy heart and soul of a brilliant singer and songwriter. His fragile lyrics and his voice, sounding strong and clear, better than it has in years, twist into a perfect union on "Ashes & Fire." Still scrappy and floppy-haired at 36, Adams has released an album almost every year since leaving alt-country band Whiskeytown a decade ago, starting with his first solo album, 2000's "Heartbreaker." "Ashes & Fire" recalls the best of "Heartbreaker," except inverted, matured. Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 S. Grand Ave., L.A. 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat. laphil.com
