Frank Tedesso - very intense and very peculiar
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Songs from Einstein's Violin is a collection of tiny folk gems. By which I mean that you really have to pause to appreciate the beauty, and it isn't the sort of thing you could get big money for at a pawnshop. More like an heirloom that only an actual heir would appreciate.Anyway, Tedesso sings about what must be the madness and disappointments of the world he sees around himself. Touching, beautiful, and weird. A lot of mental illness (not necessarily the artist's, but the subjects of his songs). A lot about the Carribean. Repeated mention of baseball. Building superintendants in drunken stupors. Desperate, failed, prison-breaks.My favorite: LBJ at the Matinee, which I am absolutely certain is the only song composed in the 1990's which dissects the promise and failure of the Johnson Admininstration and the Great Society:"... Once I walked with Franklin Delano Roosevelt.Once I set men sailing across the lunar sea.From his widow and his last breath,I saw my Presidency rise up.When I looked again, The skull of the moonWas all I could see. . . "I'm just hoping that someday he gets around to recording and releasing another collection of notes about the world he sees around himself.-mark grebner ("

"I first heard Frank Tedesso in a small coffee shop in 1986 and was immediately taken by his charasmatic and commanding voice. It was just he and his guitar and he filled the room. He writes humorous and touching lyrics and captures anyone within earshot. I recommend any of his works."
