Classic Rock, da blues, contemporary jazz, pop, bossa nova and more...

Magical! This eight-track CD is a diverse collection of mostly instrumentals utilizing a variety of styles including blues, bossa nova, modern jazz, pop and rock. Kennedy and his band are musical wizards, crafting a unique sound that combines the guitar and violin in primary roles enhanced by a strong rhythm section. 'Terra Cotta' is the colorful opener, featuring progressive rock guitar leads layered over dramatic beats. 'Dave's Not Here' melds a poignant violin with delicate guitars, enhanced by subtle sound effects and a dynamic rhythm. 'Turn Around' slows the pace a bit as Catherine Lawson on the violin creates a jazz feel before letting the track flow into a different direction. Matt Alles on bass and Joe Patterson on drums add an eloquent groove to the arrangement. 'Café Talk' continues the musical, jazzy conversation with contemporary guitar leads talking with the violin and the percussion keeping time before the song whispers to a close. 'Raw Deal' showcases James guitar chops with some heavy licks strengthened by a brawny beat and some funky effects. 'Bare Bones' is a country-blues song with a twist. The guitar and rhythm section build the backbone of the tale as the violin tells the rest of story. The song reminded me of the improvisational classic 'Little Red Rooster'. 'Just Close Your Eyes' is an instrumental soundscape with diverse tempos, textures and tones. 'Silhouette In Time' is the dynamic closer featuring vocal blends with modern rock/pop arrangements. James Kennedy and his band are magical performers with plenty of musical tricks up their sleeves! Laura T Lynch of Kweevak.com

Classic Rock, a bit of Swing, a touch of 'ole Mexico, and some surprises. What a trip Innovative! Vagabond is described as a traveler that weaves tales. In many ways, James Kennedy fits that description in a positive way. He has wandered from various musical styling and traditions on his varied dozen releases. James melds classic rock, jazz, swing, fusion and bossa nova into his diverse musical journey. Vagabond is a mostly instrumental voyage. Each of the eight tracks on Vagabond is rich and textured and flows smoothly from one mood to the next. I enjoyed the CD as a whole expedition and in particular the lush instrumentation on 'Time Walker' and 'Long Lost Love'. 'Brazil Bound', also of note has an interesting world sound, accented with subtle percussion, a cheerful electric violin and catchy chord changes. James Kennedy continues to create innovative progressive music that blends a timeless classic sound with modern tones. Vagabond builds on the idea of a journeyman perfecting his craft and his music is all the better for it!

Psychedelically original classic rock with driving guitars and vocals. Rock N Roll Heart is an ode to classic rockers Rock N Roll Heart is an ode to classic rockers such as Cream, Genesis and the Four Seasons to name some of many. It is a diverse blend of psychedelic sounds, driving guitars with acoustic tones, powerful drums/percussions and hip base lines. 'Victory and Honor' is a sixties like instrumental with stirring guitars, weird electronic tricks and a steady solid beat. Far out! 'Michael's Back Door' follows with creative instrumentation that reminds me of avant-garde bands such as Yes. Imaginative bridge changes and first class musicianship carries this ambient song to a satisfying conclusion. Thus, setting the tone for the next four well-crafted and inventive tracks.

Bits N Pieces

James Kennedy

Combine classic rock, jazz, world music, stir, and see what happens. Zesty. Another tasty effort by an obviously talented musician. Versatile, a variety of James Kennedy - Bits N Pieces Heart Consort Music - HCM-1005 This latest effort by Iowa's multifaceted guitarist James Kennedy shows why his versatility and ability to create music that is brimming with life has turned a lot of heads and ears in his direction. The lead track "Morocco" has a sly backdrop that makes you think of the North Africa nation, but there are elements of contemporary jazz and progressive rock weaved into a tasty stew, with soaring guitar solo work that would do Steve Morse proud. The ethnic feel on this CD continues with the snappy "That African Song" which laces sweet guitar harmonies with a jazzy, funky rhythm backdrop. "Through Your Eyes" gets into a sort of smooth groove like an avant-garde take on George Benson. Throughout the album, you feel a certain personality of jangly guitar, demurely plucked at one moment and furiously fingered the next, wonderfully painting the instrumental harmonic qualities of the music without vocals. Although the music has been actually written it has an improvisational quality to it, making it all the more entertaining. This is another tasty effort by an obviously talented musician who is unafraid to draw from a wealth of influences to create music that strays from the norm but in a comforting sort of way.
