Album Review

Although a studio recording, the songs within this album have an extremely live sound to them, as if each was recorded within one or two takes. Putting his fingers in a few genre pies, the album takes flight with the salsa Latin percussion featured in "11 Songo Blues" before heading back into familiar blues territory on some standards. A surprise guest appearance by Jane Siberry on "How High the Moon" is rather eclectic, starting off slow before a scat-like structure takes control. The playing of del Junco is honed to suit the needs of his supporting cast, often acting as a small but vital ingredient to the music's heart, carrying the title track. The jump in a tune such as "Some Sweet Day" is only eclipsed by the lighter, more melodic notes found in "Donald Michael" and "The Field." And as an added bonus, those wanting to learn the songs can refer to both the harmonica keys and positions noted in the liner notes. An engaging sonic nightcap.
