Though known to most as the "Walking In Memphis" guy, Marc Cohn is no one-hit wonder. Rather, he's a serious, skillful composer capable of conveying a wide range of moods and emotions. BURNING THE DAZE finds him moving through horn-driven R&B ("Already Home"), literary minor-key introspection ("Girl Of Mysterious Sorrow") and much more. Produced by Cohn with Shawn Colvin's right-hand man John Leventhal and Yardbird-turned-impresario Paul Samwell-Smith, this album of thoughtful, heartfelt variations on the folk-rock tradition draws the listener into Cohn's world. The polished-but-earthy production complements the humble insights of the songs.
