Raphael Wressnig & Igor Prado - Live - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Live, from Raphael Wressnig & Igor Prado and it's hot! Opening with funky, Bill Withers' Kissing My Love, Raphael Wressnig on Hammond and Igor Prado on guitar set up an excellent jam. Wressnig lays down the melody, backed by Yuri Prado on drums and Igor picks up the melody making this a great opening groove. Wressnig has the mic on Born To Roam with full Hammond backing and Igor's phrasing on solo guitar kicks it up to overdrive. Very cool. Crossfire is an excellent guitar fueled blues jam featuring some of Prado's best chops on the release. Wressnig pushes the heat on organ, making this one of my favorite tracks on the set. Igor gets his shot on the mic on Snooks Eaglin's, swampy, Drive It Home. With New Orleans style he rips some great riffs and Wressnig cements the groove. Bobby Blue Bland's Ain't No Love (In The Heart of the City) is a real nice change up with it's slinky feel, led by Wressnig on Hammond. Igor digs deep for some really soulful riffs on guitar giving the track real balance between the instrumentalists. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Prado's original boogie, Faceslap Swing No.5 when this band really soars. With Yuri driving the beat on drums, Igor and Wressnig go full tilt making this a terrific closer for a really cool release.
