Artist: Ryan Driver
Songs: unknown* + It's Tulip Season
Recorded at Burdock Music Hall, August 13, 2016.
The feeler of pure joy brought some of his pop constructions to this night, opening things up for his collaborator and fellow rat-drifter Eric Chenaux. Backed by Charles James (double bass) and Michael Davidson (vibes), Driver played keyb and guit, rolling out a few new songs alongside older ones. There's a yodel, there's an ai-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi, there's a contradiction and there's no contradiction.
[Ryan Driver's Sextet will be playing its monthly dose of beautifully-wobbly standards at The Tranzac on Friday night (August 28th).]
