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!

Luca Kiella - Figure It Out - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Figure It Out, from Luca Kiella and it's very entertaining. Opening with piano boogie, Ten O'clock Blues Luca Kiella on piano, Dave Forte on bass, Rick King on drums and Aaron Weistrop on guitar lay down a super jam. Kiella also handles lead vocals and Unnecessary Mercenary has a great radio feel with a pop beat and solid melody. Country classic, I Can't Stop Loving You, gets a total R&B style remake and with a funky guitar riff and drum reinforcement, this may be my favorite track on the release. Kiella shows great vocal styling and Weistrop's riffs are blues fused jazz all the way and Kiella's Hammond work is tops. Very nice. Wrapping the release is nicely crafted ballad, So Many Questions. It has a strong early 70's Elton John feel and with only Kiella on piano and vocal, a super closer.
