Paul Simon (Bonus Tracks Edition)

Paul Simon (Bonus Tracks Edition)

After parting ways with Art Garfunkel, Paul Simon set about crafting a solo album to shuffle him beyond his folk-rock roots. Assists from jazz bassist Ron Carter and Brazilian percussion maestro Airto Moreira turn 1972's Paul Simon into a sophisticated musical melting pot. "Run That Body Down" is a bass-driven foray over to the bluesy side, while the iconic "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" is shot through with an undeniable Latin swing. As ever, Simon's lyrics stay witty and quotable.
