One in a Million
All the glowing praise for Paco Shipp is right on the money. He deals with the down side of life in a sometimes humorous way, but always with the suggestion of positive possibilities. I bought it for use on my harmonica radio show & it will get plenty of airplay. After all, I do get to play music I like, & I highly recommend this album.

One in a million by Paco Shipp
I have never wrote a review. This is the best music I have heard since I discovered Widespread Panic 8 years ago. Every song is amazing. I hope Paco comes to the Champaign-Urbana area soon.

One in a Million IS...
As an artist, how do you avoid musical ideas becoming cliché? The CD “One In A Million” found a way to avoid this trap.

So what does it sound like? This is a fresh raw blues, folk, country recording. The harmonica provides perfect counterpoint to the vocals. Usually used as solo instrument, here the harmonica is tastefully melodic & doesn’t overpower the song.

Grooves are infectious and will get your toes tapping, while the accompaniment provides the knockout punch.

Really the star on this CD is the songwriting. The lyrics show the darker side of life without being overly depressing. The stories reflect a whole cast of characters, faith healers (Sister Mary), hookers (Selling Everything), politicos (Down Here), stoners (Louisa), gun toting patriots (My Friend Abraham), and assorted flawed humans working through addiction and life difficulties.

Dave Pomeroy, Rob Ickes, Andy Leftwich, Guthrie Trapp, Jamie Hartford, Pat McGrath and Ray Flacke fill out the roster of virtuosos that grace this CD.

Production is understated and effective (no unnecessary additives here…sound processors need not apply). This musical journey (each song unique) is varied but puts out raw power in each stylistic choice.

The songs all have strong hooks: Better, and One In A Million are my personal favorites. Comparative artists list is difficult with such an eclectic CD. The influences of Mark Knopfler, Woody Guthrie, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, The Band, Golden Earring, and Guy Clark, maybe even Hank Williams emerge throughout this CD.

Oh by the way, did I mention the wonderful blues harp playing?
