Album Notes
Rocknrollbluesoulfunkfolkreggaejazz it is, by lack of a more suitable word to describe this eclectic and inspired collection of new songs. From a heartfelt salute to Bowie's massive artistic legacy (How Do We Feel?) to a view from the trenches in Ypres, 1917 (In Between Battles). From an imagined Elvis mourning his twin brother who died at birth (Jesse Garon Was Buried in a Shoebox) to writing lyrics to and transforming Duke Pearson's classic instrumental 'Idle Moments' into a 3 minute jazzpop song (Too Much of Everything). From a very personal State of the Union (Now Is The Time) to nightly conversations with Mrs. Muse (Hail Mary of the Songs)...
Let this self-produced album take you on a trip and explore its musical versatility and lyrical depths. And come to the conclusion that dirk Blanchart is still every bit 'a boy' -curious, emotional, uninhibited, eager, playful- as he has always been in his long career.
