✨✧ Mark MurphyI'll Close My Eyes ... CD
Muse, 1994. Used ... $7.99
Not a bad record from Murphy, but he's sort of biding his time here – working through some pretty mellow tunes, and occasionally hitting a bit more of a groove, but none of the majestic power of his best earlier recordings. The record features backing by a group that includes Claudio Roditi ... read more CD
