Simple, quaint, yet sophisticated are odd but true words that describe Tom Smith on this offering, Jack Rabbit.  While my ears are overburdened by overproduced multi-layered productions, Smith offers a stripped down honest piece of work, devoid of deception and full of character.

 

Whether playing guitar or banjo every string comes alive in Smith’s nimble hands as he weaves beauty through songs such as “New Beginnings” and “Through My Eyes”.  The album is instrumental minus one spoken word passage as he lays it out on the line for the listener to interpret and visualize.
