This Year's List 7/15

Ryley Walker released with Primrose Green an album that impressed me much and took me back to long gone times when artist like Van Morrison or Tim Buckley were on the scene. Ryley Walker is an artist that combines old style folk-songs with heavenly jazz-tingled groove with reminiscent of Pentangle, the way John Martyn forces his way of jazz, blues, folk and rock. It's an album I listen very often this year and I like the songs he gave to us. Ryley is on of those artists that assured me seeing him playing live. For me it is a perfect symbiosis of picking guitar in a blues theme and singing his lyrics to. Seldom listened to an artist that impressed me more playing his songs and singing the lyrics. It is some kind of timeless music you could listen to for the rest of your life.

You know very well that I'm with you all the way on this one Walter. It'll be very interesting to watch where Ryley goes from here.
