Actually, spring begins tomorrow. On the calendar at least. Those warm March days in Austin left us northerners feeling like we leapfrogged a season. Only to return to snow on the eve of spring back in Rochester.
So it seems "Spring Is Just Around the Corner" could have only been written by someone up north. Richard Julian is that guy. His new cd, "Sunday Morning in Saturday's Shoes" is an excellent collection of finely honed, odd, authentic songs.
This was the first show Thursday night. I had been curious since an earlier cd of his, "Slow New York", and then his work, along with Norah Jones, with the Little Willies. Like spring, it was worth the wait.
