Zapa – The Long Trick (VULP-0075)
Zapa’s The Long Trick is a new acoustic album from Zapa. I have been consistently blown away by his talents since his early release at the very beginning of Vulpiano Records in 2009. Zapa has also released a tribute to poet W. B. Yeats in 2013, with poetry sung and set to music.
Zapa’s voice and command of the guitar is beautiful and always impressive, particularly on my favorite track on the album “Ghosts”. Do yourself a favor and pick up this release if you are interested in folk with heart that hearkens back to old-school folk and, at times, psychedelic sensibilities.
