The duo of guitarist Sheryl Bailey and bassist Harvie S creates some clever and melodic moments on this intimate collection of tunes. The selection of songs, as the delivery, is imaginative, ranging from rich bass work on a spacey read of Joni Mitchell’s “The Hissing of Summer Lawns” and a clever read of Crosby Stills and Nash’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” to hip boppers like “Cranshaw” and mellow “Now I Know.” Bailey goes acoustic and electric, with a clear tone on the peppy “Sublime” and relaxed and patient on electric during “Good Ole Days.” This one’s a keeper.”

Sheryl Bailey & Harvie S – Plucky Strum – Departure (Whaling City Sound): This duo, Sheryl Bailey (guitar) and Harvie S (bass) have a unique sound and great agility as they take the listener on a tour of their nine originals and covers of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” and “The Hissing Of Summer Lawns”. They shift styles with ease throughout the disc and their interaction is agile and smooth. Bailey’s shifts between electric and acoustic guitars show her great command of each. Really fine individual and interactive performances by both members of this duo.
