Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2007-01-27 
"Instrumental, fingerstyle, acoustic guitar music with an emphasis on entertainment value." The promo sheet hit it on the head! Fun short acoustic songs showcasing Danley’s picking skills. "I want to create something whimsical, accessible, and entertaining…" it’s partly a critique of manufactured nostalgia, and mostly the player having a grand time playing fast!

1. Entertaining upbeat old standard
2. Sounds a little like folksong “freight train”
3. Complicated picking
4. desert/contemplative- different mood from rest
5. fast!
6. Pretty, slow. Like tip-toeing through a garden.
7. short and very fun
8. new-agey. My least favorite track
9.good-natured,medium-energy
10.slow and sure, wistful.
11.Bluesy/jazzy, “talkative”
12.Slow, abstract Christmas carol, takes a bit to hear that it’s a cover
