John Flanagan Trio – Honest Man

Honest Man is an honest album.

Warm tones and easy-going rhythms greet the ears of the listener like a smile and invite them into the surrounding vibe like a hug. Tendrils of conversation tickle the eardrums and encourage the listener to pay attention to the story as it unfolds, creating images of a summer evening, lights twinkling over music and merriment. The comfortable groove twists through the imagination building and embellishing the listeners vision.

Some of the subject matter tends towards the historical and the political but it doesn’t retain a strong force, sung in the form of a tale passed down, it becomes comfortably far off in the retelling.

It is organic, it is folksy and it can’t help but relax the listener bringing about feelings of welcome and contentment as it rolls through them.
