Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

A.J. Croce/Nate Jones

When: Fri., Aug. 1, 8 p.m. 2014

The son of the late, great singer-songwriter Jim Croce, singer-songwriter A.J. Croce has been recording and touring since he was 18. His latest album, 12 Tales, is his eighth release to date. It's also his most ambitious album to date. He recorded the tunes in five different cities and worked with a slew of different producers, including Cowboy Jack Clement, Allen Toussaint, Greg Cohen and Kevin Killen. Songs such as "Right on Time" show off Croce's boogie woogie piano skills and reveal just what an old soul he really is. With its earnest vocals and piano-driven melody, the song sounds a bit like something Elton John might have recorded in the '70s. Opener Nate Jones is one of the more talented singer-songwriters to come out of Northeast Ohio in the last decade. Be sure you don't miss his set. (Niesel)
