Glen Hornblast - Once In A Blue Moon
Glen Hornblast's new CD, entitled "Once In A Blue Moon", is an eclectic mix of Glen's best songs written over the last 30 years. Mr. Hornblast, a well known Toronto singer-songwriter, has finally released the CD his audience has been waiting for. The songs range from folk to blues to country with a dash of jazz for good measure. Hornblast's sweet and mellow sound reminds one of James Taylor or Jack Johnson - his voice floats over the melodies, weaving a magic spell as insightful as it is soothing. Not a word is in there that's out of place or unnecessary.
Like all "folk" music, Hornblast's songs tell stories about "real" people and places: "Mary" is as touching a song about a homeless woman as you'll ever hear; "Freedom Train" is a raucous Blues anthem about the Underground Railroad, inspired by a trip to the Memphis Martin Luther King Museum; and "Evangeline" is a light, breezy jazz-pop tune. All in all, "Once In A Blue Moon" is a thoroughly enjoyable pot-pourrit of well-crafted songs for the modern age. With first-rate production by David Baxter and featuring some of Toronto's best acoustic musicians, this CD is guaranteed to make you feel good!
