ALBUM REVIEW: Jesse Rice “The Pirate Sessions”

Posted in Pirates, Rum, Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on ALBUM REVIEW: Jesse Rice “The Pirate Sessions”
Move over, Kenny Chesney…there is a new Pirate in town. Jesse Rice, who hails from Conway, South Carolina, has released “The Pirate Sessions“, sixteen tracks full of the sun and the sand and a drink in my hand….with no bottom. The difference here, is that Rice has written all of the tracks himself. They are all cleverly crafted, well played, and Rice’s voice is in excellent form. Every song on “The Pirate Sessions” would fit right in to the summer loving crowds at a Chesney or Buffet concert, and they all sound country radio ready.
Key West Time” talks about getting away from it all and NOT keeping track of time….”Haze of the Rum”..well, this one speaks for itself…”The haze of the rum makes every girl a 10″. Rum goggles, anyone? “Pirate Girl” is a very catchy ditty about his dream girl, while “Coco Cay” and “Home Away From Hometownare odes to his dream locales. “Hemingway’s Hideaway” shows he shares a favorite author with Kenny Chesney as well. This is also one of the serious notes on the CD, and it is also one of the best.”Caribbean Crazy” is a suntanned, fun filled riot,  and will be making the trip to Grand Cayman with me in November.
Best for me on “The Pirate Sessions“? “Crashing Waves“, a song about trying to forget the love that can’t be forgotten. I guess I just have a love for those Pirates with broken hearts, but this one is simple, and sweet, and makes me want to see what else Jesse Rice has up his puffy, pirate sleeve. Hmmm…perhaps he will be on next summer’s Chesney tour??
