DEVON ALVES

Across That River

2007-04-30

With album credits ending, "big thanks to all those who have helped to make possible another bucket of funk” I’ve encountered an album I begin to like out of principle. Upon listening Alves delivers a wonderful acoustic sound lying some where in a lost triangle between blues, rock and bluegrass. Opener, ‘Pull the Road’ is an excellent introduction to this pagan traveler on an album where Nature and rustic travels reoccur as much as David Grisman style mandolin cries. Other notables include, ‘Rainy Day’ a brief instrumental showcasing Alves, steel guitar skills. Also, When it’s time, a traditional slide guitar number, Boatyard Blues, and Apple Tree. –Derrick Mund
