MUSIC REVIEWS

Jack Logan & Bob Kimbell-Little Private Angel (Parasol)

 

After two critically acclaimed but publicly overlooked albums on Medium Cool Records, Jack Logan resurfaces on a new label with a collaboration with Bob Kimbell, leader of the band Weird Summer.

 

This album has a more mellow vibe than Logan's earlier work, but it's still a strong outing. In fact, a few songs on the album, like "Frozen Rope" and "Nerves Of Steel" have the two seeming like a rockier, more contemporary Simon and Garfunkel. That, by the way, IS meant as a compliment.

 

The beautiful acoustic-based music is a bed for the unusually intelligent and poignant lyrics.

 

I wish that Logan and Kimbell explored their rockier side a little more, like they do on "Fire On The Boat," but that is a small quibble with an overall terrific album.   (9/98)
