Mr. Bruce Gordon – One Tall Order (CD, Digital, 2023)

No.5221

GAJOOB Review by Bryan Baker:

“One Tall Order”, the latest offering from Mr. Bruce Gordon, is a delightful journey back to the rock and roll of the 70s and 80s. This album, filled with engaging lyrics and catchy melodies, is a nostalgic nod to the era of Eagles, Jackson Browne, and Warren Zevon.

From the opening track “Genie in a Bottle” to the closing “You Gotta Believe”, the album exudes a warm familiarity reminiscent of rock at its finest. Gordon and his ensemble have masterfully woven together elements of rock, folk, and pop to create an album that feels both fresh and comfortably familiar.

What sets “One Tall Order” apart is Gordon’s ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia without falling into the trap of mimicry. His music is unmistakably influenced by the greats of the past, but he brings his own unique flavor to the mix, creating a sound that is distinctly his.

Each track on the album offers something different, yet all maintain a consistent vibe that makes for a cohesive listening experience. From the upbeat tempo of “If I Live Forever” to the introspective “I’m For Gettin’”, there’s a song for every mood on this album.

The production quality of “One Tall Order” is top-notch, with every instrument and vocal line shining through clearly. The stellar contributions from musical compatriots such as Evie Sands, Jason Berk, and Peter Holsapple only serve to elevate the album further.

In conclusion, “One Tall Order” is a must-listen for any fan of classic rock and roll. Whether you’re a throwback throwing back and looking for a taste of your youth or a younger listener with a penchant for the classics, this album is sure to please.
