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!

Fabrizio Grossi & Soul Garage Experience - Counterfeited Soulstice Vol 1 - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Counterfeited Soulstice Vol 1 by Fabrizio Grossi & Soul Garage Experience and it's a cool, funky R&B and soul party. Opening with Slave To My Rhythm, a wildly woven musical fabric with rock and soul roots. With Grossi on lead vocal and bass, Diimond Meeks on lead vocal, Kenny Aronoff on drums, Alex Alessandroni JR on piano, Derek Day on guitar, Francis Benttez and Andrea Grossi-Benitez on backing vocals, Chris Hansen on harp and Garrett Holbrook on lap steel, this track is full out. Adding in a funky bass line on Right Down Below, Grossi sets up a real nice groove and Day and Hansen roll in and out with terrific riffs, supported by the rich backing vocals of  Benitez and Grossi-Benitez. Very cool. Bette Smith has the lead vocal on With or Without You and I really dig her voice. With Fabio Drusin sailing on harp, a pounding bass line by Grossi, Stephen Perkins on drums, Dylan Meek on Hammond and Benitez and Grossi-Benitez on backing vocals, this is one of my favorites on the release. Shit Load Of Sugar featuring Diimond Meeks on lead vocal is a rocking track with a funky bottom and a real nice guitar solo by Serge Simic. Wrapping the release is Them and Me,  a driving pop rocker with Diimond Meeks on lead vocal and solid backing by Benitez and Grossi-Benitez on backing vocals over a strong bottom by Grossi on bass and Herman Matthews on drums.
