Picks and Pans Review: Let's Make Sure We Kiss Goodbye
Vince Gill (MCA Nashville)
He doesn't have the swagger or the sneer. But Gill, in his consistent musicality, earthiness and astute sense of rhythm, is sounding more and more like Elvis Presley. One could easily imagine Elvis's singing any of the songs on this album, from the jaunty "Feels Like Love" to the bluesy "Baby Please Don't Go" to the religious, though hardly reverent, "Hey God." Elvis, however, wasn't big on duets. Gill not only enlists the new Mrs. Gill, Amy Grant, to sing "When I Look into Your Heart" with him, he also taps his daughter Jenny, 17, to join him on "That Friend of Mine." As usual, Gill complements his singing with fluid, inventive guitar-playing. Constantly topping himself can't be easy, but Gill just gets better and better.
