Don Gallardo

I was standing in-line at San Anselmo Coffee Roasters[Wiki] the other day, and noticed that they had a CD on a shelf with a face I recognized from behind the counter. So I bought it. The CD is Pale Shade of Blue[Wiki] by Don Gallardo, and a bunch of other folks that you actually might have heard of. It runs from very Country to Jazz, with stops in between, and I think it's pretty darned good. There are a couple of tracks that might have been made more commercial with a producer and the budget to do a couple of takes and some mixing, but this guy can lay down some tunes, and the few places the album does show its teething pains make it more endearing as a work of instrumentalists, rather than a technical and post tour-de-force as so many modern sounds are. If any of that sounds appealing, I recommend it.
