Big thanks to the Something Else site for
the nice review of my work!
To quote from the “Something Else” site:
“With the lead single off his forthcoming 18th studio album, A Fool to Care, Boz Scaggs has left the bluesy Deep South environs of his more recent work for the West Coast. This transportive, old-world charm, so reflective of San Francisco’s atmospherics, surrounds “Last Tango on 16th Street” like a twilight fog.

At the same time, songwriter Jack Walroth — a low-key Bay Area legend, his nickname is Applejack — isn’t content to simply reiterate the look and feel of that city’s ageless Mission District. Applejack’s perceptive descriptions of its every-day inhabitants, brought into a whole new clarity via Boz Scaggs’ wistfully urbane vocal, fill in the rest of this enveloping narrative.

“Last Tango on 16th Street” is, in fact, one of two Walroth songs on the 12-track A Fool to Care…”
