Add another to the Essential Listening list!
Gill Landry’s solo debut, “The Ballad of Lawless Soirez” reminds me of the soundtrack for a lost Quentin Tarantino film while the cover art reminds me of some Dick Tracy or Harlem Nights poster art. The Ballad of Lawless Soirez is one of those cds that I liked the moment I heard it, and it has done nothing but grow on me with each subsequent listen. While this may be Gill’s solo debut, the fella has been on the scene for quite some time. Having released six cds with the New Orleans jug band The Kitchen Syncopators (who’s records through the band’s web site), he�s also played banjo and steel guitar for Old Crow Medicine Show. Featuring a mixture old country blues, jazz and songster music of the 20�s and 30�s, and Gill’s voice….and oh what a voice, makes this the perfect cd for a quite night with a warm glass of whiskey and a little sweat. Take a gander at the samples and get your hands on this cd by what ever means you prefer.
