This review is from: A Solitary Man (Audio CD)
This is an extremely satisfying debut Lp from the talented JJ. I was drawn in by the voice at first, as I suspect will most people, but what really makes it are the wonderful arrangements and orchestration.
I've been reminded, at various times, of John Martyn, Nick Drake, Van Morrison, Roy Harper and, strangely, Caravan. Can't be a bad thing.
The overall feel is far more soulful than some of those references suggest, and he has the sort of rich, resonant vocal that will set him apart from many of his contemporaries.
An artist of great potential, I can't wait to see what he'll come up with next. Oh, and the trombone solo in the final song is pure joy.
