LISTENING POST: Fro — "Dark Beauty"


I have to admit that I've had an ear out for Fro, aka Harold Davis, since I started the blog.  Just who was this brotha on guitar with this big. . .'fro?

He is a confident guitar talent, something that's abundantly clear on his recently released EP, "Surprise Music".  All five pieces are instrumental tracks, and what he creates with his trio is at turns both muscular and thoughtful.  It's rock, but you hear and feel what must be considerable jazz training coming through.  His attacks are clean and decisive, which only makes you more inclined to follow where he leads.

Any of the songs on the EP would be good examples, but this one–"Dark Beauty"–is my favorite.
