Following his similarly cool, unique and soulfully urbane 2013 debut Pinnacle, Denver-based composer/guitarist Dave Erickson – recording with the Dave Erickson Project (DEP) – presents an exciting and colorful master class in musical diversity on the instantly infectious CITY NIGHTS. Alternating between sizzling rock/blues licks and laid back seduction via luminous melodic licks, Erickson keeps the set unpredictable as he leaps from jazz to Latin, R&B and even folk influences. It’s the perfect soundtrack to some fun and romantic CITY NIGHTS! ~JONATHAN WIDRAN
