Maybe Today

author: Harry C. Tuniese - The Noise May 2008 The Lenny Solomon Band plays a modern variation of good ole Creedence, with a dash of Petty, and a splash of Wilco. They have just enough country twang and lite-rockin' folksy blues to grab your attention. I like this a lot, especially the easy effortless way Lenny sings with a wizened adult outlook on life and its complexities. He had some radio success with "Let's Go to Mars," protesting the current war, and his observations of some modern dilemmas like Katrina ("The Flood") and personal misplaced values ("The Great Judgment"), places his sensitivity and caring center stage. There are a few novelty tunes also ("It's Snowin'" or "Rockabilly Kid") which balance his viewpoints. The sound of the band is a major factor, especially the mercurial guitar pickings of Bill Gibbs, who works wonders with his Telecaster and assorted acoustics. Every line is concise and wonderfully constructed, just like you'd expect from any "Nashville Star." The rhythm section of Dennis Gurgul and Don Barry keep it succinct and snappy. This was a really enjoyable album and here's hopin' he doesn't have to go to Jupiter (where governments are stupider) before another fine disc comes out.
