The first time I heard a Jono McCleery track, I stopped what I was doing in amazement. It was the song TOMORROW, on which he manages to sound like both John Martyn and Gil Scott Heron. No mean feat! Subsequently surfing thru Youtube, i found other songs where the vocals are more like Tim or Jeff Buckley. And others where the compositions and guitar could belong to Nick Drake!
Luckily the album is now out, so no more need to depend on Youtube for a McCleery fix. The musicianship of the other players here is of a wonderful standard. However, admiring the double bass playing, which reminded me of that on Astral Weeks, I find that is Jono, too!
A very talented guy. to say the least.
My favourite track here is probably HOME, with that pulsating beat... it actually raises my heart rate, by some mystical device ... give it a try and see what you think!
