  • Between the Shadows and the Light

    Between the Shadows and the Light

    Between is the operative word in that title. Singer-pianist Edmond’s album finds him betwixt a number of genres and influences. While his raspy pipes and folksy delivery suggest he’s spent quality time with Dylan’s catalogue (the cover of It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue helps, too), some jazzy pop and burbling guitars move things in a Knopfleresque direction — while the mellow saxophone and soulful elements take a detour to Van Morrison’s realm. Rather than being neither here nor there, Edmond makes Between seem like the right place.
