Blues as only Simon could perform them
Orland Carra | Wheeling, WV | 09/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great CD by Paul Simon. Ace in the Hole and Late in the Evening are simply rockin blues. One Trick Pony is also a cool Simonized tune. Several great jazzy blues also inhabit this CD - Jonah, Belvedere Hotel and God Bless the Absentee to name a couple also have great lyrics. Great album to just sit back and listen to with no distractions."
A Great Paul Simon Album!

"Jazz and fusion,as you might notice are ammong my favorite music styles.But I've always enjoyed Paul Simon's
witty,reflective songwriting and lyricism.And on 'One Trick Pony'
Simon incorperates both of these quality's into his music.
"Late In The Evening" ha a bouncy latin feel to the arrangement
while "Ace In The Hole" and the spunky title song are about as
close to funky fusion as Paul Simon will likely ever come and I
must say;it's a great fit.On the more typical side "That's Why God Made Movies","Oh Marion","Nobody" and just about everything
else on this album is stripped back,light textures and very much
in the typical Simon style-featuring the crack musical backup of
Eric Gale,Richard Tee and Hugh McCracken who's backing,without
sounding crass,is the most appropriate they could possibly use
on a New York singer-songwriters album.One of Simon's finer works."
