As soon as we heard the opening line of the near-11 minute cosmic-country road epic, ‘West Texas Trilogy’, “I can smell gasoline and tacos….” we knew we had to release this one…

Jerry David DeCicca's fourth solo album, ‘The Unlikely Optimist and His Domestic Adventures’, is an anti-Hallmark ode to positivity set in the Texas Hill Country where he lives. Dark gray in one corner, silly in another, humorous but always human, it features Augie Meyers (Sir Douglas Quintet) on Vox Continental & squeezebox, Ralph White (Bad Livers) on violin and kalimaba, Frank 'The Wild Jalapeno' Rodarte (Doug Sahm) on tenor sax, and JDD's buddies, electric guitarist Don Cento (Sarah Jaffee), bassist Canaan Faulkner (Black Swans, Will Beeley), drummer Jovan Karcic (Scrawl), and his partner, Eve Searls, on backing and duet vocals.

Some of the songs: “I See Horizons” is a mediation that peaks over the next ledge; “Coffee Black” is a wake-up call to mellowing out; “Texas Toad” finds joy in the little creatures among us; “West Texas Trilogy” is a road song that trances and traces poverty, nature, memory & music along the border to Big Bend; “Quiet Life” just sits on the front porch.
