Last monday was one of those days that only an acoustic guitar could save. What a coincidence that Jack Paravane played at Cafe Musique – an easy decision.
Joe started his set with Ray LaMontagne’s “Trouble”, which wasn’t a bad forecast at all. His slightly higher, somewhat rough voice and his guitar playing were very catchy and took me directly on an one hour journey through well selected songs of covers and originals – particularly I loved some of the longer intros and instrumal parts of the latter. But not only playing acoustic guitar he also added some harmonica to a couple of songs which gave them a pleasent bluesy note. For example his original “What do you know” and the Grateful Dead’s “My sisters and brothers”, enjoyable and easy listening.
