I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Suite 28 Records: ThunderSOUL Orchestra - 528-0728 - New Release Review

I just got the opportunity to review the most recent release, 528-0728 from ThunderSOUL Orchestra and it's a funky soul party. Opening with pure funk track, What U Need, Gino has the lead on vocal with background vocals by Tino and Rollo. Reginald Nello Nelson on piano Orphey on hot trumpet, the tight percussion of Donald Compton and the plucky bass of Gerald Calhoun makes this a hot track. Next up is Pleasure, another track that just oozes funk. With Howard Ware and Scott Orphey on hot trumpet, Gerrry Demars on trombone and excellent vocal blending with Tino and Rollo. Special guests, Scott Mayo on sax, Reggie Young on trombone, Darell Crooks on guitar, Gary Bias on sax, Jimmie Earl Walker on trombone, Dorian Paul Williams, Chad Welling on guitar, Eddie Knight on guitar, Elmoris Britton III on drums, Leslie Michael vocal, Alva nelson piano, Fernando Pullum on trumpet, Johnny Reason on guitar, Dean James on sax, Charles Spike on guitar, Danny Hull sax makes this band really smoke! Hey rolls into some really sweet soulful feel with super vocal blending and really nice basswork. Excellent! Super smoking Johnny Reason is really a grooving bass track with warm vocals and screaming guitar soloing in the like of Eddie Hazel. Wow! Back to the heavy funk, Noise has a great groove and nicely woven vocals. Calhoun is off the hook on bass creating such a great interplay with Compton on drums. Smooth soul track, Too Many Keys is really vocally smooth with just the right touch. Compton's drum work is tight and funky. Stretching out a funky jazz soul interlude, I Wanna Go Home is warm and with nicely woven instrumentation creates a really nice soul envelope of sound. Breathing a hot puff of funk, Hahahaha Yeah if a super funky groove. With a great bass bottom that is constantly on the move, horn punctuation and infectious vocals, this track is super. Wrapping the release is All About Love's Holiday, a cool reprise with soulful vocal blending over the vital bass work of Compton and super horn work by Demars, Nelson and Orphey. A really funky cool release. Yes!
