Regions Of Light And Sound Of God

Released:
Label: ATO Records (AT0)
Not counting Tribute To, the singer's EP of George Harrison covers, Regions of Light and Sound of God is Jim James' debut as a solo artist. And it's a fairly ambitious one. Using his roots in singer-songwriter fare for a base, he erects a sound boasting touches of electronica, Tin Pan Alley nostalgia and, interestingly enough, blue-eyed soul. On maze-like miniatures "Dear One" and "Know Til Now" James slides into a self-reflection mode that relies heavily on his falsetto; in contrast, he really lets his trademark pipes open up on "All Is Forgiven" and the Donny Hathaway-inspired "Actress."
