Something of a slacker renaissance man, prototypical mellowsurfer-dude Jack
Johnson is not only a BILLBOARD-charting recording artist, but also a
world-champion athlete and award-winning documentary filmmaker. On his second
full-length album, ON AND ON, the sandy-toed singer/songwriter delivers a bare
bones set of acoustic folk rock as soft and soothing asthe Hawaiian breezes that
serve as his inspiration.
As on his debut disc, BRUSHFIRE FAIRYTALES, Johnson serves up a groovy, yet slightly melancholy stew in his trademark breathy voice, which at its best recalls everyone from Steve Miller to Chet Baker to Evan Dando of The Lemonheads. This time around, however, the vocalist/guitarist isn't afraid to gently stir pinches of reggae, hip-hop, and Harry Belafonte stylepop-calypso into his usual hippie jam-band roux. Mario Caldato Jr.'s ultra-sparse, live-sounding production carefully reveals the subtle sadness that lurks behind even Johnson's poppiest tunes, making ON AND ON the perfect album for a midnight beach party on the last night of summer vacation.
