Michael Farquharson Appears on
||Slo and Lo CD (2003) |
Michael Farquharson albums On Slo & Lo, guitarist and arranger Jeff Friedman plays through 14 tracks of his self-described "noir-blues." It is an accurate description, though -- clever as it is -- the music doesn't quite delve deep enough into either side of the equation to really make an emotional impact. It is certainly bluesy, though rarely in a raw way that would indicate the form as a natural means of expression. Likewise, Friedman uses enough vibrato and sustained weirdness to hint at noir, though rarely with enough darkness to make that end of it truly effective. Andy Plaisted's drumming is patient and supportive, though Michael Farquaharson's bass and Joe Mulholland's keyboards are a little too electric/synthetic for the occasion. ~ Jesse Jarnow

||That's Right CD (1999) |
Michael Farquharson CD discography Boney James may bag more glory and headlines, but Dan Moretti -- whose lack of name recognition is certainly not the fault of his solid indie releases throughout the 90s -- is nearly as effective in combining irresistible tenor and soprano hooks with seductive funk grooves. He seems to enjoy switching off from track to track between uptempo jams like "Cynthia" (where his aggressive tenor takes hold) and soft-hearted statements like "When Is It Real," where his soprano melody floats gracefully above the intertwining harmonies of Vinny Valentino's subtle acoustic guitar and Bill Cunliffe's lush piano touch. Cunliffe is an attractive presence here, contributing three of the best tunes and placing his solos in just the right spots, much as he did with the early-'90s band Porcupine. On "Cynthia," he adds his cheer above the bluesy synth vamps of Greg Wardson. For the most part, Moretti plays his melodies straightforwardly, without many tangents, but his switch from ...
