Danny Ross - As The Crow Flies
The first song is a classic Led Zep song called 'When the Levee Breaks' now it takes guts to sing a song that Robert Plant has sung, but Danny does it justice, real justice, so cool, so much swagga, I can't knock this classic. The next song is the Lenny Kravitz 'Are You Gonna Go My Way' he does this song justice. I had the privilege of seeing the Kravitz and his dreads live, I even got to shake his hand (maybe I should grow some dreads, for that serious street cred look!), awesome rendition of an awesome song. The next song has so much history for me as it was a song that my old man loved it's called 'All Along The Watchtower' my old man preferred the Hendrix version more than the Bob Dylan, but here Danny Ross does an unbelievable job and it is so cool.
The next song is 'The Joker' made famous by the Steve Miller Band, his version is great, I am loving the songs he picked for the show, it's showed what a cool musician he is. Again this is another cool rendition, Danny sure has some major music cred. The next song is 'Old Man' by Neil Diamond and what a version he does, I actually like this version better! Then we move onto 'It's Time' by Imagine Dragon's this is such a great song that it will become a classic in years to come, and here Danny Ross shows that he has some serious balls and he sings this so well, you'd be forgiven thinking that he actually wrote this song, it suits him so well.
The next track is 'Let Her Go' by Passenger 51 and he does so well playing guitar ( I like singers that can actually play an instrument, it means they are true musicians and not just karaoke like so many are on these shows. He does a cool version. Then we move onto his own song 'Windmill' which starts off slowly and it is a really awesome song, he has done so well, just beautiful it really has an awesome old school rock feel to it, almost in the same vein as Led Zepplin, that's how good it is.
The next song is 'Pockets' written by Ollie Sloan, it is a killer song one of the best on the album, the sparse arrangement makes the song and Danny's voice just so smooth and so cool. the next song is 'Sugarman' by Sixto Rodriguez what a seriously cool song, what an awesome version! The last song is 'Suzanne' by Leonard Cohen, what can I say leonard Cohen is a god in the music world, and Danny Ross owns this song, what more can I say.
All up this album is a ripper of a CD, so old school sixties/seventies rock updated for today. Danny Ross is a throwback to an era that I thought had died, it is an album that I am giving a massive 5 shots of whiskey out of 5, I highly recommend this album and I can't wait till Danny Ross releases an album of his originals if this is anything to go by it will be UNREAL!
