You'll want to listen to it again and again
There is more soul in these ten songs than you will find in any single album anywhere. Dworsky's musical strengths are comprehensive - so much so that I don't know what to rave about first: his magnificent ability as a pianist; his skill on guitar; a voice reminiscent of gospel singers; or his remarkably intelligent songwriting.

Stubborn Naivete is a delicious compilation of songs - some live, some from the studio - that takes the listener through a variety of moods and styles, from a mournful blues solo to full instrumental jazz numbers.
Twins - an instrumental opus full of suspense and surprises
Free Yourself - the funkiest song on the album with an orchestra of female vocalists backing up Dworsky
Dark Train - a sad, soulful trip down a lonesome track
Stubborn Naivete - one jazz man's call to action
Somebody's Soldier - when musical genius meets parenthood
Huwaida - a driving groove for the pacifist who takes a stand
Tenderly - a tender song to slow dance to
God in a Bottle - the sorrowful blues of a drunkard
When I Was Your Age - a beautiful, slow waltz about letting go
Slap Me Hard - a jazzy love song only a musician could write (my personal favorite)

This is an album you'll want to own!

Beauty and Love
This is one totally amazing CD - I didn't think anybody was still making music like this in this day of hype and crass commercialism. Here is a superb piece of work, multiple layers of sound, feeling, humanity, one of the rare works that combines musical mastery and soul. Every time I hear the album, I come away with a warm feeling of love and human compassion that manifests itself in this work. Yet, it is a beautiful combination of sound - vocals and instruments with influences that remind me of the Delta Blues, the Paul Winter Consort, the Doobie Brothers, just to name a few. Any description of this will fall short of the real thing, yet thankfully you can experience samples of it right here. For me, this disc is a real keeper, and deserves to have international recognition to enrich the souls of the multitudes who will hear it. Bravo to Daniel Dworsky and his musicians and vocalists !!!!

He still has that Stubborn Naivete in him
Danny (Daniel) Dworsky has a rare gift for writing words and melodies that get trapped in your head and won't leave for a week at a time. That's what songs like God In A Bottle, Twins, and Stubborn Naivete do to me.
Dworsky offers us a mix of Jazz, Blues, Soul, Funk, Gospel and a little Broadway musical themes. Accompanied by his own piano playing, and a talented and diverse crew of musicians, many of the tracks on this album were recorded in live performance and there fore may have a less than perfect studio sound, but on the other hand, it's hard to compete with the dynamics of a live band playing and improvising together in front of an audience.
Beyond the joy in his music, Dworsky has a good dose of humor in his lyrics, many of them autobiographical.
This is the new album that we have been waiting for from Dworsky, he's kept us hanging for a long long time, but now the wait is over. Buy this album, cause I said so!

This is a gotta have! Can't stop listenin. The man is pure dynamite but also soft and sentimental. Musicianship at its nadir in a wide spectrum of styles both studio and live. Let the music play on.
