John Goldman’s second disc titled In Walked Pierre is like having an old friend appears at a social event, which you have not seen in ten years.
Vocalist Pierre Walker leads off the album with the self-titled track. His vocals are smooth throughout. Goldman plays a good solo on here. Coming in at just over nine minutes, "In Walked Pierre" seems to last forever, which is a good thing. Track two, a cover of "It Was A Very Good Year," follows the theme of the original but puts their own spin on it. Pianist Dan Cray plays some low runs and drummer Greg Wiser-Pratt keeps the beat perfectly.
Song six, "Column Blue," is a vehicle for the flute playing of Goldman along with "Ebony", a slower track featuring the subtle piano of Cray again. A ‘laugh’ intro to "Hicks and Yahoos" features the vocals of Donna Goldman. They are not really vocals, but more of just studio banter and the electric guitar of Jeff Parker.
With almost every song coming in at six minutes or more, John Goldman has delivered another sold album. He has found some great talent to play with and express his ideas. Through the piano of Cray to the drumming of Wiser-Pratt and the trumpet of Pharez Whitted, In Walked Pierre is a good album throughout.
