On a hot summer morning on Manhattan’s west side, the sight of a debutante in a black dress, wearing what appeared to be a most uncomfortable pair of high heels, planted the seed for the title track on Richard Julian’s latest, Sunday Morning in Saturday’s Shoes. Julian recalls. “There was no way she’d gotten dressed that way that morning.” Such attentive observation is a staple of Julian’s songwriting, on full display in his fifth full-length album (and second for Manhattan.) When asked for a reference point for his style, the songwriter mentions filmmaker Alexander Payne (Sideways, Election) before mentioning other musicians. Julian’s screenplay-worthy craftsmanship is a skill that’s earned him entrance to a mutual admiration society that includes artists like Randy Newman, Norah Jones and Bonnie Raitt. In fact, it was Raitt who initially suggested producer Mitchell Froom (Los Lobos, Richard Thompson, Elvis Costello and many others), who signed on to help Julian shape Sunday Morning in Saturday’s Shoes.
