Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JD SOUTHER

- If the World Was You

2008-10-20

Very consistent, mellow jazzy-light rock, yet diverse stylistics abound. A former roommate of Glen Frey, and neighbor of Jackson Brown, he penned a large chunk of the Eagles greatest hits. This is his first recording in 24 years, recorded live-in studio- with a five piece band that sounds much larger. All songs sound good, One More Night (Killing Spree) is clever, Journey Down the Nile is a classy jazz cut, The Secret Handshake of Fate is thirteen minutes long, but one seams to not notice because of the intricacies involved. – John Hardy
