JAY HORTON
8 pm., Sunday January 19 | $26.50-$39.50.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[CORNFLOWER BLUES] Mastering 12-bar guitar work as a tweener while evidently born to the vocal rasp of an elderly hell-raiser—plus chiseled features and manful falsetto sufficient to thrust a 16-year-old blues prodigy onto heavy MTV rotation—Jonny Lang appeared destined to embrace the rough habits and dire fate his larynx predicted before 2000’s religious awakening. Veering toward glossy gospel ever since, Lang’s latest release, and first studio album in seven years, Fight for My Soul, further abandons the fretwork of old in favor of streamlined R&B flavorings. Even if that still-marvelous voice proves well-suited for limning rapturous odes, his lingering weaknesses of songcraft were far more readily disguised back when he primarily spoke in licks.
