Track by Track Review
"Nitecap Rock" is a raw R&B rocker with raspy sax and jammy guitar. What it lacks in writing, it makes up for in energy and spunk.
Slow silky guitar romances the night in this sultry smoky bar number. Romantic, slithering cool, and very well phrased. Very nice guitar work, harmonics, and warmth. Excellent track!
"Old Jose" is a bouncy number with fun percussion and plinky piano. While more or less a riff rocker, its charm and spunk overcome the limitations that usually implies.
Soulful cool down blues, with lovely guitar, gentle drums and cymbals, and a mysterious melody line that's exotic and slightly south of the border. The narrative supports the Mexico theme. Very cool!
