‘Cause You’re Mine is the first track on Here On In, and it immediately introduces Trysette as a powerful force, with an overall style that builds off of the work of Natalie Cole and Sheryl Crow. The instrumentation, which normally fades into the background on current albums, properly bolsters and otherwise highlights these vocals. The momentum generated by this introductory track continues into The Right Thing. From the introductory drum roll to the more Caribbean approach taken by the track, Trysette immediately finds a home in listeners’ hearts and minds.
I feel that the more complex set of compositions that comprise The Right Thing will involve an entirely different set of listeners, adding considerably to Trysette’s fan base. The track is punctuated through the inclusion of a Santana-esque guitar solo. This solo is important as it is mirrored in Moonlight Kisses. The first few seconds of this track come trampling through, gradually polishing itself until it represents a solid radio-friendly track. Take A Seat destroys any notion that the latter half of an album is weaker than the first; the instruments here take a focal point.
The vocals are up to this challenge and battle the aforementioned strings and drums; what results in Take A Seat is a strong contender to be the top track on the album. Just A Fantasy is the final track on Here On In, and it acts the perfect closing. This is due to the tying of loose threads; the different genres and styles that are present on Here On In are all present. This touching track concludes an album in which listeners can easily appreciate smart musicianship and tremendous quality. Check it out today.
