Bay Area musical bard Jesse DeNatale delivers one of the most delicious--and rare--surprises for music buffs: the chance to hear a new, distinctive voice and set of songs that nonetheless feel utterly familiar on first listen. Or, in short, a genuine emerging talent. Quick (and highly favorable) references would be Tom Waits and Terry Allen--the sandpapered pipes, literate lyricism and knack for arty, offbeat musical touches--with a dash of Bob Dylan and his acolyte Steve Forbert. But DeNatale's no copyist--in fact, he's rather stamped from his own bohemian/beat poet mold. He hits Dallas for his own intimate show at the AllGood before dates with fellow song scribes Eliza Gilkyson and Joe Ely.
