Gentle Jazz! Well possibly
on 5 December 2014
Gone are the gentle folk songs of yesteryear, and the Jazz that was always in his routes has come to the fore. Not intricate or electric jazz, but a acoustic folk club jazz with double bass, reasonably relaxing, but with too much life to call it easy on the ear. The rhythms are from various influences that are difficult to pin down. Some of the lyrics are a little out of date to the real modern day, but that was always Donovans way, so we cannot hold this against him, as it is him. This is not the case with the whole CD.
The complete content is listenable because every song is different from the other, so boredom is not an issue, I can't honestly say this CD has much to show any great steps forward in the music world, but it is new for this particular artist, and for me breaths new life into him.
