John Pagano Band: One More Round - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, One More Round, from John Pagano Band and it's a funky rocker. Opening with Bottoms Up, John Pagano Band (formerly JP Blues) hits the ground running with contemporary vocal styling, slide guitar and snappy drums. With a reggae beat, Ain't Mine is a cool track with tension and a lot of polish.  With a lumbering rock sense Pagano shows a bit more smoke on guitar backed by Shiloh Bloodworth on drums and Tony Hossri on bass. With a contemporary pop edge, rocker Ain't Gonna Lose You has a springy beat and radio rated vocals. One of my favorite tracks on the release, 99 Problems is a straight up rocker with solid guitar riuffs rooted in the blues. A heavy foot by Bloodworth and heavy reinforcement by Hossri gives the track just the right oomph.  Wrapping the release is driving rocker, Catch That Train. With a heavy bottom, slashing guitar work and powerful drum attack, these guys mean business. This is a definite change for Pagano with a solid rock stance.
