Paul van Vlodrop has put together a beautiful album with Alley Cat. There’s a whole lot to love about this project, but what strikes me most of all is the musical depth and feeling of it all, not to mention that it’s artfully played and sung by Paul with expert assistance by a skillful cast of musicians and singers. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Paul for a long time, as well as having played music with him, and he has always been a musician of great taste and musicality, which shines through here on every track. The song selection is a pleasing blend of more familiar songs like “Walk On Boy” to lesser-known choices like John Prine’s “Blue Umbrella.” In all cases, Paul puts his individual stamp on them and lets us hear and feel how much he cares about these songs. As a side note, I’m very grateful and honoured that Paul even chose to include an early song of mine on the list. Thank you, Paul, and thank you for this  outstanding album.
