The late, great jazz trumpeter Don Cherry lives on not only through his amazing legacy of recordings, but through his talented progeny. Several years after Cherry's daughter Neneh was propelled into the public eye, her brother Eagle-Eye makes his recorded debut with DESIRELESS. Eagle-Eye's music is miles away from both his sister's neo-R&B and his father's jazz. Rather, DESIRELESS is full of stripped down alterna-pop (whatever that means). Slightly R&B-inflected, occasionally reminiscent of Ben Harper, the tunes on DESIRELESS are gentle, acoustic-based, modern folk-pop, rootsy but thoroughly modern. Eagle-Eye's relaxed, confident delivery and inward-looking (but never navel-gazing) lyrics make his first release go down easy.
