REVIEW: Bob Davoli “Nowhere Near”


Bob Davoli is releasing a new album Nowhere Near on September 8.  Bob produced the album, and it was engineered and mixed by Eric Kilburn and mastered by Toby Mountain. It’s also well worth noting that all of the proceeds from the sale of this album are being donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank charity organization.

“Don’t You Think It’s Time” is lots of poetic lines from start to finish:  “autumn fever can warm your soul, let your love go where it wants to go.”

“In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning” is a David Mann & Bob Hilliard cover, and is presented in a hushed gentle style.

“Tarnished Dreams”, a Steve Glover cover, again is acoustic guitar but this time is accompanied by the high vocals and violin of Kathleen Parks as the sassy lines unfold.

Album closer, “Catch the Wind” (by Donovan), is a good choice.  This song is contemplative and light.

Bob Davoli creates songs that are lyrically complicated.  But musically always easy to understand.  Kathleen Parks contributes very strong vocals throughout, and the violin is a sweet touch.

Musicians on the album are Marty Ballou on string bass; Bob Davoli on vocals and guitar; Kevin Barry on electric guitar and dobro; Kathleen Parks on vocals and violin; Jesse Williams on string bass; Guy Van Duser on acoustic guitar;  and Gabriela Martina on vocals.
