by Ricky Pope on June 13, 2021

Travis Moser is a gifted storyteller as well as an excellent vocalist, as he proved many times in the evening. Most notably in “The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress. It is a very poetic lyric that he delivered with great emotion. He was also particularly effective in Jimmy Webb’s “Still Within the Sound of My Voice,” which opened this show. He found a wistful energy in “Adios” and brought some world-weariness to “I”m Blowing Away.” I especially enjoyed his reading of “What’ll I Do?,” the Irving Berlin tune from Ronstadt’s popular “What’s New? album.
