Ray Bryant - Lonesome Traveler

Ray's choice of material again borrows from a wide musical palette and we are treated to fine performances of jazz originals, standard ballads, a folk tune and a recent Rock 'n Roll hit. The title tune, Lonesome Traveler, is a fitting follow-up to Gotta Travel On of the previous Cadet album. If someone can be lonesome and happy at the same time, then this condition must apply to Ray; because there's nothing lonesome sounding about the joyful groove he and his companions achieve on this track. It's a mover! - by E. Herbert (
