Biography

“Gentle Spirit” is not simply the name of the debut solo album by songwriter/musician/producer, Jonathan Wilson, it represents the ethos of the artist himself. Warm, supple melodies etched in layers of stringed instruments and willowy organ motifs accompany his earnest, North Carolinian drawl as he tells tales of humane values lost and found.

Format: Audio CD
Jonathan Wilson has been very industrious of late not least producing tracks on the epic new album by Roy Harper "Man & Myth". He must be an expert on time management since this new album "Fanfare" is a long 13 track double like his last album 2011's "Gentle Spirit". That was a very personal outing with a Laurel Canyon vibe that produced a mix of sheer brilliance but also some songs which slipped badly into seventies pastiche. "Fanfare" addresses these issues and is the fully-fledged complete American beauty that Wilson has been threatening to make standing easily as one of the best of 2013.

The songs are stronger, the production is tighter plus the musical feast on offer far more tasty and lavish. It starts with the superb seven minute title track. This is classic songwriting, echoing the vibe contained on Dennis Wilson's masterpiece "Pacific Ocean Blue". It is a multi layered mini epic with Wilson hushed vocals playing out over soft piano, dramatic orchestration and even some free form jazz. Next up "Dear Friend" shows that Wilson has profitably studied Pink Floyd with the reverb laden guitar solo half way through partly hewn from "Mount Gilmour". The great thing about Wilson however is whilst not disguising his influences he does not become overwhelmed by them. Guesting on the album are luminaries like Josh Tillman, Jackson Browne, Graham Nash and David Crosby. It is easy to imagine the latter in his prime covering the complex acoustics of "Her hair is growing long". Other songs like "Future Vision" echo John Lennon and the straightforward "Love to Love" recalls the Eagles. Standouts are many.

From the very first minute of the title track, "Fanfare", you can tell that this is going to be a very special album indeed, as it introduces the album with an instrumental mixture reminiscent of Pink Floyd and The Eagles before exploding into a beautiful near-classical grandiose rock, resplendent with thundering, echo-laden toms and rich strings which are more Electric Light Orchestra than Crosby, Stills and Nash. It's majestic, astonishing, wonderful stuff. One thing is for sure, this second album is a different proposition than Wilson's excellent Laurel Canyon-influenced debut, "Gentle Spirit" (although the same influences are still very much present and correct) and whether you are open to a departure from that style or not will go a long way towards determining whether you will like this album or not.

I'm going to lay my cards on the table right away. I think this is a dazzling album and one of the very best albums I have heard all year. It is one of those records that demands your attention; you simply have to stop doing anything else and listen to it. One of those very special albums that very much deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the rock classics which have become household names. I'm not convinced that this will happen, as the general public's taste in music seems to be very different to mine these days, but the musicianship and creative vision on "Fanfare" is incredible, head and shoulders above some rather ordinary records by well-known names that most people seem to gush about. Had this album been released in the 1970s, exactly as it is, it would have been heralded as an important piece of work, I'm sure, but here we are in 2013 and, sadly, this beauty will only be heard by a relatively small amount of people worldwide.

Well, yet another brilliant album by the multi talented Jonathan Wilson. Unlike the previous review, I adored gentle Spirit from 2011, the late 60's era is to me still a massive part of musical history. Country Joe & The fish/Quicksilver/Crosby Stills & Nash/and Floyd, from those times all influenced Gentle Spirit, it's good to know that sound hasn't been lost for ever! On first hearing Fanfare, I wasn't sure how to take it, I'm three plays in, it just gets better, now I've got it, the quality production, just perfect. Right now the track for me "Cecil Taylor" David Crosby on vocal solo, ("If Only I Could Remember My Name, re-mastered"), Graham Nash joining on background harmonies, it's so CS&N, but who cares, it's great music! Love to love is Dylan, not a stone left untouched. Well I'm back to the beginning and Fanfare, the title track is playing, fourth time around, it's like another fantasy, Yep, Still living the dream!

I actually downloaded this album a few months earlier but never really listened to it.

Then - while doing a bit of decorating, as it happens - one of the songs came up on shuffle on my iPod. For the first time in a long time, I actually stopped what I was doing to listen to the song. Then I played it again.

Well, well, well. I'm now in my 50s and I've been listening to "rock" music for 40years. Not much these days makes me stop and listen.

This is a wonderful album. Yes, it's a bit retro, a bit Laurel Canyon, a bit Neil Young, a bit Steely Dan, a bit 1971 - but all with a modern twist, or at least a slightly more modern twist.

By chance, I found out Mr Wilson was playing near me and went to see him. He couldn't quite reproduce the album live but that really would have been an achievement. He came across as very earnest and very passionate. Seemed like a lovely chap.

I've listened to this album endlessly over the last few months.

Highly recommended. I'd give it 6-7 stars, no worries!
