“WALKING IN HER SHOES”

AS A WRITER FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND A MUSIC REVIEWER MY EARS GET EXPOSED TO ALOT OF GOOD MUSIC, AND EVERY NOW & THEN I HEAR SOME AMAZING TALENT, AND ONE OF THOSE TALENTS IS A LADY NAMED NINA FLAASETH, WHO IS NORWEGIAN AND A SPLENDID MUSICIAN. WHEN IT COMES TO SUPERB MUSIC, NINA SHOWS HER STUFF. A TRADIOTIONAL SOUNDING ALBUM, THE ALBUM NAME IS “LIVING ON” AND NINA REALLY HAS A TREMENDOUS SOUND. FROM THE START OF THIS AMAZING AND REAL HONEST ALBUM THE FIRST SONG IS CALLED “OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE” AND NINA HITS THE FLAVOR BUTTON RIGHT ON IT’S HEAD. THE SONG IS AMAZING AND WITH NINAS ABILITY TO EXPRESS THIS THROUGH HER WONDERFUL & AMAZING VOCALS, THE SONGS AND HER MUSIC BECOME ALIVE AND IN YOUR EARS. STARTING OUT THE NEXT SONG WHICH I CALLED “ANGELS DON’T SING THE BLUES’ NINA BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF REALLY GREAT VOCAL ABILITIES , ALONG WITH THE SOUND OF SOLID MUSIC AND THIS SONG REALLY HAS A TRUE FEEL TO IT, AND WAS REALLY ENJOYED. THE THRIRD SONG ON THIS AMAZING ALBUM FROM NINA IS CALLED “LOOK AT US AND THIS SONG IS SUPERB AND POLISHED AND FINE A SOLID BALLAD AND NINA SHOWCASES HER TRADITIONAL SOUND AND IS JUST OUTSTANDING. WITH THE NEXT SONG STARTING OUT CALLED “CALLING ALL HEROES” NINA HAS A SOUND THAT IS REALLY ENJOYABLE AND SOMETHING ABOUT HER VOCALS ON THIS SONG THAT DRAWS MY EARS TO THE SONG, IT SEEMS AS IF NINA HAS THAT TRUE STORY TELLING IN HER MUSIC AND HAS A AMAZING SOUND THAT IS CONTAGIOUS, BUT A REAL THAT ALLOWS US TO REALLY TAKE IT IN. “CANEY FORK BAIT N’ BEER’ A SONG THAT NINA BRINGS IN HER ELEMENT OF REAL LIFE AND MAKES THE SONG A FUN AND TRUE TO LIFE NARRATIVE OF THIS PART OF HER LIFE. AS THE ALBUM PLAYS ON NINA HAS WONDERFUL AND AMAZING HARMONIES ON ALL OF THE SONGS, AND THE RTHYHM SOARS BEYOND BELIEF. “MISERY LOVES COUNTRY”IS ANOTHER SONG THAT NINA REALLY EXPRESSES HER AMAZING SOUND, AND THIS IS A PERSONAL FAVORITE OF MINE, WHERE IT SHOWS NINA AND HER ABILITY TO SING A SONG AND MAKE IT TRULY COME ALIVE. ‘ ‘PASSING THE BAR” IS ANOTHER SLOW BALLAD OF A SONG AN NINA PUTS HER MAGICAL TOUCH ON IT AND HAS THAT REAL HOMETOWN FEEL TO IT, AND IS TRULY AN AMAZING TO HEAR THIS AND HOW NINA BRINGS HER TOUCH ON IT. “PAST THE POINT OF RESCUE’ NINA ONCE AGAIN BRINGS A TRUE FEEL AND EMOTIONAL FEEL TO HER ACT OF SONG AND THE RHYTHM IS TRULY AMAZING AND THE SOUND IS UNMATCHED AND SUPERBLY CRAFTED. THE INSTRUMENTATION THROUGHOUT THE SONG BRINGS IN THAT TRUE TEXTURE OF REAL MUSIC AND COUPLED WITH NINA AND HER OUTSTANDING VOCALS MAKES A TRULY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE THROUGHOUT THIS TRULY REMARKABLE ALBUM. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “YOU ARE LIVING ON” NINA HAS REALLY SUPERB SOUND THAT IS ORIGINAL AND A AMAZING MESSAGE, AND NINA LENDS HER TOTAL HONESTY TO THE SONG AND MAKES IT FEEL SO TENDER AND SO VERY EXPRESSIVE. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE FAN OF BLLLADS AND THIS SONG COUPLED WITH NINA AND SINCERITY IN HER VOCALS IS JUST AN OUTSTANDING AND MADE ME A TOTAL FAN BEYOND BELIEF. “WALK IN YOUR SHOES” NINA CONTNUES HER AMAZING AND TRUE LIFE LIKE EMOTIONS AND HER MUSICAL INFLECTIONS JUST LEND YOUR EARS A GOOD SOUND AND NINA HAS A PHENOMENAL AND SUPERB SOUND. HER HONESTY IS FELT THROUGHOUT THIS REMARKABLE ALBUM CALLED “LIVING ON”. THIS IS ON TRUE MUSICIAN AND A TRULY REMARKABLE SOUND THAT INFLECTS TOTAL AMAZING MUISCALITY AND ADDED FLAVOR AND TEXTURE THAT KEPT ME ENTERTAINED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. NINA IS “CALLING ALL HEROES ALL THE WAY THROUGH THIS AMAZING AND SUPERBLY TOUCHING AND REMARKABLE ALBUM AND ALL THE  WHILE TOTALLY “PASSING THE BAR” WITH FLYING COLOURS ALONG THE WAY. I THANK NINA FOR HER AMAZING FRIENDSHIP AND HER OUTSTANDING GIFT OF AMAZING MUSIC AND ALLOWING ME TO BE BLESSED TO WRITE ABOUT HER AND SHOWCASE HER WONDERFUL MUSIC TO THE WORLD.

IF I EVER HEARD A NATURAL SOUND IT’S THE NEW EP FROM COUNTRY MUSIC GUY NAMED JEFF CLAYBORN AND HIS AMAZING EP. FROM THE START THE EP SCREAMS ON THE RADIO, ON THE RADIO JEFF HAS GOT A SOUND THAT JUST FITS RIGHT IN, WITH THE 1ST SONG CALLED “CADDY IN THE CAMPGROUND” THE SONG IS AMAZING AND JEFF’S VOCALS ARE KILLER, AND SUPERB. LOUD AND PROUD IS WHAT I SAID WHEN I HEARD THIS POLISHED AND OUT LOUD SONG. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT SONG CONTINUES TO POUR OUT THE STEAM, THE SONG CALLED ‘HIGH AND LONESOME, JEFF JUST HAS THAT AMAZING SOUND AND HIS MUSICALITY WITHIN HIS SONG WRITING TALENTS AND HIS ABILITY TO PROJECT THIS LOAD AND CLEAR, THE SONG HAS A BOB SEGERISH STYLE TO IT, BUT JEFF BRINGS IN HIS FULL FLAVOR WITH BACK UP SINGERS AND ALL. THE SONG IS SUPERBLY DONE AND IN MY OPINION WILL BE DEEMED A CLASSIC IN NO TIME. WITH JEFF, I FELT THE PASSION THAT PREVAILS ALL THE WAY THROUGH EACH SONG SELECTION, WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “ACRES OF SUNSHINE’ ONCE AGAIN JEFF HAS A TRUE GRIP ON WHAT SOUND IS AND THIS SONG HIS HARMONIES ARE SMOOTH AND THE VOCALS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD AND WITH HIS CONSTANT MOMENTUM SHOOTS TO THE STARS AND BEYOND. WHAT A REAL TALENT AND AMAZING ARTIST JEFF CLAYBORN IS WITH HIS TRUE AND FOREVER FEELING AND VERY CURRENT SOUND ON THIS SUPERB AND MASTERFUL EP. AS I READ ABOUT JEFF, HAS WRITTEN ALL HIS OWN SONGS AND THE TOTAL MUSICALITY SHOWS THROUGH ON EVERY SONG. A TOTAL BREATH OF FRESH COUNTRY AIR IS WHERE JEFFS MUSIC LIES, WITH THIS BEING SAID THE SONG CALLED “GOOD BAR ATTENDER” JEFF, BRINGS IN THE FULL FLAVOR OF WHAT MAKES A GREAT COUNTRY HIT ON THE RADIO. AND I SURMISE THAT JEFF WILL BE A HOUSEHOLD NAME SOON IF HE HASN’T PROVED THIS ALREADY. THE LAST SONG ON THIS POLISHED AND AMAZING CLEAR, LOUD AND PROUD AND PROJECTS A STRONG BEAM OF LIGHT ON OTHERS OUT THERE TRYING TO SHOW THEMSELVES AND WHO THEY ARE AS HITMAKERS OF TOMMAROW, JEFF NEEDS NOT TO TRY, JEFF DID IT IN THE FIRST CHORD OF THIS WONDERFUL AND AMAZING EP. AS THIS AMAZING EP COMES TO A CLOSE THE SONG CALL “MY WOMAN IS WINE” JEFF, SAYS IT ALL WITH GREAT SONGWRITING, GREAT SINGING AND PERFECTION WHEN IT COMES TO VOCALS. THIS SONG IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ON THE EP, AND CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR MORE FROM JEFF, WHERE HE IS TRULY ONE TO BE RECKONED WITH WITHIN THE SUPERSTARS OF YESTERDAY AND TODAY, JEFF HAS IT AND AS A REVIEWER I FELT IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH THIS AMAZING AND MIRACULOUS EP FROM COUNTRY SUPERSTAR JEFF CLAYBORN. I THANK JEFF FOR POLISHING MY DAY AND BRINGING MORE THAN “ACRES OF SUNSHINE” TO MY EARS. I THANK HIM FOR HIS AMAZING FRIENDSHIP, AND HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE WHOLE PICTURE TO THE MUSIC SCENE AND PAINTING SUCH A VIVID AND FRESH PICTURE OF WHAT MUSIC SHOULD BE.

“LEANING INWARD”

AS FOR ALL OF MY REVIEWS THEY ARE ALL HEART FELT AND HONEST AND ABOVE ALWAYS WITH A POSITIVE VIEW. WITH THAT BEING SAID THERE IS AN MUSIC ARTIST THAT I CAME ACROSS HIS NAME IS GHOSTLY BEARD, AND WOW!!! WAS I TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY, WITH HIS ALBUM ENTITLED “INWARD” FROM THE START OF THIS AMAZING AND REMARKABLE ALBUM THE SONG “HOW DOES IT FEEL?” GHOSTLY, SINKS IN THE AMAZING SOUND OF A PHENOMENAL INSTRUMENTATION AND THE LYRICS ARE OUT OF THE UNIVERSE. IN AN ALMOST REMINICENT FEEL AND SOUND MY MIND WENT STRAIGHT TO THE PAGES OF PINK FLOYD. I AFTER READING WHAT INSPIRED THIS SUPERIOR TALENT, I KNEW I WAS IN THE DRIVERS SEAT OF A TOTAL MUSIC EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “THE LOVE IN YOUR EYES” GHOSTLY REMAINS TOTALLY ABOVE AND BEYOND ALL MY MUSIC EXPECTATIONS AND THE SONG AND THE TOTAL EXPERIENCE IS A TOTAL WONDERFUL & PLEASANT JOY TO REALIZE HOW MUCH TALENT IS BEING BROUGHT TO MY EARS. GHOSTLY BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF CLASSIC ROCK, AND WOULD FIT RIGHT IN THAT CATEGORY AND WITHOUT A BLINK OF AN EYE. “GONE’ THE NEXT SONG BEFORE ME IS EQUALLY BALANCED AND A MASTERY OF THE COMPLETE MUSICIANSHIP, AND GHOSTLY HAS THAT TOTALLY COVERED FROM START TO FINNSH. WITH AN AMAZING ABILITY GHOSTLY HAS MASTERED MY EARS WITH HIS MUSICAL CANDY AND HAS MOVED ME INTO THE DENTIST CHAIR TO EXPLAIN WHAT THE DEFINTION OF MUSICAL CANDY IS, MY DEFINITION IS PURE AND EASY TO ANSWER…”GHOSTLY BEARD”. THE ALBUM IS AMAZING AND THE MAGICAL PRESENCE OF THE SOUND THAT ARRIVES THROUGH MY SPEAKERS IS SIMPLY PUT FRICKIN’ AWESOME. WITH THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “AUTUMN BLUES” GHOSTLY SHOWS TOTAL DEXTERITY WITH THE CONFINES OF HIS COMFORT OF HIS SMOOTH GUITARISMS AND AMAZING INTRIGING SLIDE WORK. “NIGHT TRAIN” IS A DELICATE SIDE OF GHOSTLY’S AMAZING ABILTY TO STRUM OUT A SONG AND ACTUALLY FEEL AND HAVE THE PURE TEXTURE TO A SONG, AND THROUGHOUT THIS ALBUM IT HAS THAT VERY THING TEXTURE AND FEELING AND THE EMOTIONAL PROJECTING THROUGHOUT GHOSTLY’S AMAZING AND TOUCHING MUSICALITY. THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM I FELT THE PASSION THAT GHOSTLY ARRANGES. WITHIN THE NEXT SONG CALLED “LET GO” A BRUTALLY AND ARTICULATE SONG AND SUPERB LYRICAL CONTENT, IN OTHER WORDS HARVARD SCHOOL OF LAW MUSIC THAT GHOSTLY SHARES WITH THE WELL SEASONED MUSICIANS OVER HIS OR HER CAREER. GHOSTLY EXPRESSES THIS THROUGHOUT THIS MAGNIFICIENT AND WELL REFINED SOUNDING ALBUM, AND IS WELL ENJOYED BY ME. “IT DOESN’T MATTER” IS ANOTHER FINE AND EXTRAORDINARY PIECE THAT MAINTAINS THE TOTAL CONSISTENTCY OF THE SHEER ARTISTRY THAT GHOSTLY PRESENTS ALL THE WAY THROUGH. AT TIMES I HEARD A LITTLE OF THE HINTS OF JAZZ/FUSION INNERLAYERED BETWEEN THE BLUES RIFFS, BUT WITH A SOUND THAT KEEPS THAT POLISHED SOUND REMAINING AND BLEEDS THROUGH THE SPEAKERS ALL THE WHILE KEEPING THAT BLUES SOUND IN THE FOREFRONT. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED 9 TO 5 ( BARELY ALIVE) BRINGS THE LEVEL OF MUSICALITY BACK TO THE INNER WOVEN PINK FLOYDISMS AND THE DARKER SIDE OF BLUES BUT REMAINS AN AMAZING PIECE OF MUSIC THAT IS INTRIQUETTE AND POWERFULLY CHARGED WITH AWESOMNESS. “LET IT RAIN” IS ANOTHER FINE AND AMAZING SONG THAT GHOSTLY JUST GETS IT!!! THE SMOOTHNESS AND REFINED AND COMPLETE PACKAGE IS HERE AND GHOSTLY HAS WHAT IT TAKES PERIOD!!! “GOING AWAY’ IS A SONG ALONG WITH THE REST ARE REALLY SONGS I FELT THAT WERE HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY THE GREATS OF MUSIC AND GHOSTLY HAS GRADUATED TOP OF THE CLASS WITH HONORS AND AMAZING CREDENTIALS, AND ONE BEING THIS AMAZING AND SUPERBLY MASTERED AND A WELL REFINED MUSIC CONTRIBUTION TO ALL MUSIC ARTISTS, GHOSTLY IS IN A CLASS OF HIS OWN AND HIS AMAZING ABILITIES OF LEANING “INWARD” AND SAYING LISTEN TO THIS!!

“DOWN MEMORY LANE”

IF THERE WAS EVER A GUY WHO SHOWCASES STYLE, IT’S THIS GUY, THE GUY IS NAMED RAT PACK RICKY, AND HIS SELF TITLED ALBUM, AND THE SONG SELECTION IS SUPERB AND VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT AND TRACK BY TRACK I WAS CONTINUALLY AMUSED MUSICALLY. THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “FEELING GOOD’ AND RAT PACKY RICKY JUST BLEW ME AWAY WITH HIS VOCALS AND THE SOUND OF GOOD OL BIG BAND, AND STARTED OFF WITH THE AMAZING SWINGING ACTION AND THE SONG, JUST WAS A SPLENDID EARFUL. WITH THAT THE NEXT SONG WHERE RICKY TAKES ON THE SONG  “CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU’ AND RICKY JUST REALLY HAS THAT SOUND THAT IS THAT OF AGES WHERE MUSIC HAS A VOICE OF IT’SOWN RICKY BRINGS THIS TO THE TABLE WITH THIS WONDERFUL RENDITION. “SUKIYAKI” YET ANOTHER SONG THAT JUST BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES TO MY MIND AND RICKY HAS A VOICE THAT KEPT THAT SOUND ALIVE AND REALLY HAS A PHENOMENAL BACKING BAND, AND RICKY REALLY BRINGS IN HIS PURE TALENT, THAT IS REMEINICENT OF A MUSIC ARTIST NAMED BOBBY GOLDSBORO AND IS A QUITE REFRESHING SOUND AND RICKY HAS MADE ME A FAN, IN THIS SONG RICKY SHOWCASES HIS ACAPELLA ABILITIES AND SHINES WITH GREAT SPLENDOR. THE NEXT SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “L.O.V.E.” AND RICKY SPELLS IT OUT AND DOES THE SONG TOTAL JUSTICE, AND THE HORN SECTION JUST ALLOWS THAT FEELING OF FRESHNESS AND VITALITY THROUGHOUT. THE NEXT SONG I WAS PREPARING MY EARS FOR MAYBE A UNIQUE APPROACH OF THE LATE BOBBY DARIN’S SONG OF “MACK THE KNIFE” AND RICKY BRINGS AN AMAZING EARFUL AND I WAS TAKEN BACK AND QUITE HONESTLY RICKY HAS THAT CONSISTENT ABILITY TO KEEP YOUR EARS DRAWN FOR MORE AS THE ALBUM PLAYS. A QUITE REMARKABLE SONG FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD, OR OLD BLUE EYES, RICKY POISES HIS WAY THROUGH THE SONG OF “MY WAY”, THE ORCHESTRATION WAS FINE, THE ADDED STRING SECTION WAS SMOOTH, I PERSONALLY WOULD LOVE TO HEAR MORE HORNS, BUT RICKY KEPT TE SONG PLAYING AND DID IT HIS WAY, NOT MY WAY.. QUITE HONESTLY RICKY HAS GOT A GREAT SOUND THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZING AND SMOOTH ALBUM. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “HOME” RICKY SHOWS HIS SINCERITIES AND HONESTY AND REALLY EXPRESSES IT THROUGHOUT ON THIS SONG AND THROUGHOUT THIS WONDERFULLY SMOOTH AND UNTARNISHED ALBUM. WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “CRY ME A RIVER” I AM USED TO HEARING A FEMALE PERSUASION ON IT, BUT RICKY SLANTS THE SONG IN HIS FAVOR AND REALLY BLEW MY EARS AND THE SONG WAS BROUGHT TO LIFE, WITH RICKY’S SMOOTH AND FLAVORFUL INFLECTIONS REALLY MADE THE SONG AND MADE ME EXPRESS APPLAUSE WITH GREAT DELIGHT. THE SONG OF TONY BENNETT IS ONE TO BE RECKONED WITH, ESPECIALLY THE SONG OF ” I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO” RICKY MAKES THE SONG AN ADDED BONUS AND IS A VERY COLORFUL AND PAINTED A CLEAR VISION OF THE SONG AND WAS MOST ENJOYABLE. “FLY ME TO THE MOON” WELL AT THIS POINT OF MY LISTENING EXPERIENCE I KNOW ABOUT WHAT SONGS OR SONG ARE MY FAVORITE(S) BUT I HAVE SEVERAL I REALLY TRULY CAN SAY THAT ALL OF THEM ARE MY FAVORITES ANBD RICKY BRINGS IN REFRESHING AND A MOST ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE ALBUM. I AM KIND OF PARTIAL TO THE SONG “MACK THE KNIFE” JUST BECAUSE IT’S ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MUISC GUYS BUT ONCE AGAIN RICKY BROUGHT HIS FLAVOR TO IT AND IT’S PART OF THE TOTAL LISTENING EXPERIENCE, TRACK BY TRACK. THE LAST TRACK ON THIS MIRACULOUS AND REFRESHING CHANGE AND SMOTHLY SUNG ALBUM FROM RAT PACK RICKY, IS A SONG CALLED “LET ME BE YOUR TEDDY BEAR’ AND IT’S A FUN SONG AND RICKY KEPT THE FUN IN IT AND HIS VOICE ADDS TO THAT FUN,AND HIS CONSISTENT USE OF THAT VOICE FROM DOWN MEMORY LANE, WAS AN EXCELLENT REMINDER THAT THERE ARE GREAT VOICES OUT THERE, AND RAT PACK RICKY IS ONE OF THOSE. MANY, MANY THANKS TO RICKY FOR HIS WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP AND HIS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL GIFT OF VOICE AND HIS ABILITY TO TAKE ME DOWN MEMORY LANE. WITH THIS BEING SAID SOMEDAY, SOMEPLACE I WILL BE HEARING HIS VOICE IN MY EARS AND IF I’M LUCKY ENOUGH TO CATCH A LIVE SHOW OF HIM, I’D BE TRAVELING BACK IN TIME WITH RAT PACK RICKY AND ALL THE GREATS DOWN THAT PROVERBIAL ROAD OF TIME.
