Don Leady & His Rockin' Revue
Poppy Toppy Gone (Leray Music)
Don's encyclopedic, twang-splayed negotiations jar agreeably. The orthodoxy is ever in the bones: Riotously living honky tonk and blues joint spirits jump up and proclaim in fire-tongues. In one moment, "Train Kept A-Rollin'" gestures. Another recalls Jeff Beck's "Goin' Down." Both are marvelous inspirations. The assembled Revue -- Eric Przygocki, Alberto Telo. and Jack Montesinos -- are the conducive force appropriate; brawny, sure-stepping, and rocking the house with a nimble hipness. And then, all of a moment, Don opens up his own magnificent muse.
