ANDRE ETHIER - On Blue Fog

andre%20ethier%20-%20blue%20fog.jpgThe third solo album from ex-Deadly Snakes frontman Andre Ethier is a watershed moment. While still in the realms of classic Dylan, Van Morrison and Woody Guthrie, On Blue Fog has a swagger that makes his past releases seem like the work of a boy. His voice, as a singer and a songwriter, is fully formed: rich, touching, and generous in tone. His lean folk style is now well balanced by vibes, stabs of manic saxophone, and Highway 61-esque electric workouts. As the closing stomp of "Pride of Egypt" fades from view, you know that this half-hour gem is nothing short of a treasure.
