- Event Details
Musically, Alejandro Escovedo is in his own genre, notes David Fricke in Rolling Stone. High words of praise indeed, especially at a time when most popular music is boxed into styles and rife with references, influences and antecedents. Escovedo may possess a miles wide palette of music that he has absorbed and draws from, yet his own sound defies categorization and transcends boundaries. He is also a consummate storyteller who is held in the highest esteem by his peers, one of who describes him as a poet of the ordinary event. Escovedo’s music can range from full force rock’n’roll to the subtle delicacy heard from a string quartet, sometimes in the same song. Fricke describes him well as a folk-blues classicist with a gritty, plaintive voice and an equal fondness for dirty boogie and spectral balladry.
