Album Review

Vance Gilbert is no average folk singer. His Edgewise is on equally sure footing, whether he is rejuvenating a hoary Eagles song ("Lying Eyes"), melding country and rap, or singing love songs of either the tender or tortured variety. Presided over by the smooth production of Alain Mallet, which anchors the album in some places with percolating percussion and in others with jazzy guitars (on one song provided by Tuck Andress) and soaring background vocals (by Patti Cathcart and Jonatha Brooke), Gilbert's songs address racism, growing older and the fires (of joy and despair) that burn beneath the calm faces strangers wear for one another. He is a storyteller of the first order, and Edgewise is a gem.

One of many self-styled contemporary folk singers to have come on the scene in the 1980s, Vance Gilbert was inspired to begin writing his own material after hearing Shawn Colvin perform at a Boston theater. While Gilbert has become recognized on the folk festival circuit as a songwriter of substance, performance for him is second nature. Gilbert is not a middle-of-the-road folk singer, and his diverse set of influences includes Kenny Rankin, Roberta Flack, Carmen McRae, George Benson and Stevie Wonder....
