Jeff Larson - Close circle. JEFF LARSON has been wandering between melodic rock, country vibes and the occasional westcoast pop vibe for many years now. His albums may have all the above ingredients, but there’s still quite a wide variation between them. This time he’s more into soft melodic rock and tiny country hints again.
Jeff Larson – Close Circle. by Mike Davies 27 August, 2014. If there’s a soft spot in your heart for the warm mellow folk-pop sounds of early 70s California, then the . based singer-songwriter Jeff Larson could well fill a chamber. Close Circle is his tenth studio album (and first for NCompass) and over the past decade he’s forged a fruitful musical relationship with Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell of America, both of whom appear here on the Laurel Canyon vintage Rain Soaked Cloud (co-penned with Beckley), with Jeff Pevar on a variety of guitars and Timothy B. Schmit’s daughter, Jeddrah
Close Circle features 10 new Jeff Larson songs with guests Jeff Pevar, America, and others. Produced by Jeff Larson, Jeff Pevar, Hank Linderman. CLOSE CIRCLE is both immediately appealing and rewarding on repeat listening, as these deceptively simple recordings open up, revealing sophisticated harmonies-featuring Jeff and several guest vocalists-as well as lovely, mostly-acoustic arrangements. Jeff's often collaborated with Gerry Beckley of America, and Gerry shows up along with bandmate Dewey Bunnell for backing vocals on "Rain Soaked Cloud," also co-written and co-produced by Gerry.
