Jimmy Ponder – Something to Ponder {Muse}


Review by Anders Jonasson (amazon.com)

This is a beautiful album that Ponder dedicated to his 2 daughters. In one way it is typical Ponder album and in one way it is`nt,,the diffrence is the pianoplaying by Mark Soskin which is heart grabbing..he nearly steals the show on several occasions.
There are 4 songs that stands out in my opinion:
-Johnnys place…a straight a head 12 bar blues with that bounce that only Ponder is able to produce
-Since I fell for you….that old funky tune..which Ponder handles so nicely and even it is 12 minutes long it never get’s boring..this is the real highlight of the album
-The craetor has a master plan…wonderful playing by Ponder,,where he also sings in unison with his single string lines..very Bensonlike
-Moonlight in Vermont….the tune often linked with legendary guitarist Johnny Smith..played so relaxed and beautful.
Get it if you can…not easy though to find!!
