Cryland is blues. It uses a lean, flexible band, and highlights a slightly phased guitar. The tracks all stand as close to pure 12-bar as you can achieve without actually aiming at blues purism. This extremely pallet massaging work could be from 1970 for its clear production and adherence to old delta forms.
But what really got me about Cavalli is his voice. He has a light alto and sings every track with a laid back-but never detached-vibrato. Now unless you are Robert Plant or Burton Cummings or Rob Thomas, a class A set of pipes is rare. But Carvalli understands the art of great singing, staying a fraction of an inch back from the music, letting the music carry him. You can almost see him moaning with a guitar on a depression era Alabama street corner.
