We were at Starbucks and out of the corner of my eye I caught this cool album cover which upon closer inspection I see it is from Hugh Laurie (Dr. House). I whipped out my Nexus 4 and pulled up Google Music to do a search and this album and his first album popped up. I added it to my playlist (through my Google Music Subscription) and then when I got home I gave it a listen.
The album Didn’t it Rain is a very bluesy, jazzy, Southern sounding experience. Exactly what you would expect to hear playing at any local coffee shop for some easy listening and relaxing music. Laurie plays piano, guitar, and does vocals in addition to having several special guests joining him along the way.
All in all, its a really good album and I’m very happy that my Google Music Subscription was there to give me access to it. I’ll definitely be listening to this album quite a bit.
