Jason Daniels – Dashboard Visions and Rearview Reflections

Jason Daniels – Dashboard Visions and Rearview Reflections
Jason Daniels “immigrated” from Nashville, TN to Jackson, MS, and you can feel both influences in this wonderful debut. The horn laced soul kicking off the lead track “You’re An Angel” evokes Ottis Redding, yet Jason’s voice has an underlying twang to his bluesy voice. “Take Me From the City” and “Riding Back to Memphis” tilt more towards Johnny Cash boom-chicka country with a nice touch of organ that leaves the soul vibe as a flavorful backdrop this time. “On The Highway” is a pure hybrid of funk, blues and country. It does not take you long of listening to realize the variance of Jason’s American roots music influences and how he has an uncanny knack of doing interesting and entertaining things with them in both subtle hybrids and very unsubtle direct homages. Combine this with lyrics that obviously come straight from his heart, and musical backups including people who have played for Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Son Seals and others, and you have a CD that defies you at times not to tap your feet, play air guitar, or sit back, close your eyes, nod your head in time to the music and smile. – MW
