There’s an under-the-radar musical treasure in Nashville named Dan Cohen. His self-titled debut album has a touch of moody blues, traces of classic country and funky, soulful New Orleans jazz, making it not only a pleasurable listen, but a clever and intricate work of art. Cohen’s impeccable talents on the guitar move with every track (including three instrumental compositions) and his Lyle Lovett-like voice and energetic style are magnetic. On top of that, he’s got a flair for lyrics, “I’ve got two wooden nickels and rabbit’s foot/Livin’ on luck like a small-time crook/Steal a little sun, save it for the rain/Bring it home to mama and I put it in the bank” (“Rabbit’s Foot”). In a nutshell, this album is a perfect mixture of mature and retro styles making it both familiar and edgy.
