Well-traveled pop and rock session bassist/vocalist David Paton returns to his proverbial roots with this collection of songs about triumph, defeat, pride, camaraderie and farewell. These are not unusual topics in the realm of Scottish music, but there are some particularly curious components to Fragments. Paton's rather unique voice lies somewhere between that of Phil Keaggy and the Proclaimers' Reid brothers; while an abundance of traditional and Celtic-rock bands exist, those utilizing Celtic elements paired with accessible pop music seem to be quite scarce (the Corrs come to mind); plus, setting 18th-century poet and songwriter Robert Burns' works to contemporary pop arrangements is also an intriguing concept. Paton pays homage to six Burns compositions, but the the real attention-getter is the opening anthem by Corries member Roy Williamson, titled "The Bonnie Blue Bonnets.
Jimmy Burns, Born in 1943 near the Delta town of Dublin, Mississippi, embodies that increasingly rare combination of blues roots deep enough to tap into 'the real thing', while still possessing the youth and vitality to present his music with plenty of life and real excitement. He honed his vocal skills singing with vocal groups in the '50s, and over the years has perfected an appealingly melodic, vocal-inflected contemorary guitar style to complement the down-home picking he'd learned in his youth. In the studio Jimmy and his regular band played off one another with a musical empathy that comes only from countless nights of proving themselves on the bandstand. With Leaving Here Walking, Jimmy pays tribute to his earliest musicla inspirations, revisits the era of classic R&B, and presents well-crafted originals covering all the facets of his long and varied life in music.
