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!

Outrageous 8 Records artist: Hollywood Paul Litteral - Legacy - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Legacy, by Hollywood Paul Litteral and it's light and has a great groove. Opening with Fathead Newman's, Hard Times, Paul Litteral on trumpet is surround by talent including Bill Bodine on bass, Michael Rosen on drums, Rocky Davis on keys, Sam Morgan on bari sax, and Colin Kupka on alto sax. Strong opener. On Harry Warren's There Will Never Be Another You, Litteral sets the lead on trumpet joined by Davis on keys. Angela Mae O'Neill is featured on lead vocal and does a great job. I particularly like Davis' piano improve on this track, backed by Bodine and Tony Pia on drums. The Eagles, Desparado, gets a real nice rework with Litteral on trumpet melody. With Marcy Vaj on violin and viola, Kevan Torfeh on cello, Bodine on bass, and Davis on keys, this is a new track rather than a stale remake. Wrapping the release is Billy Cobham's The Moon Ain't Made of Cheese which really has a nice feel. With Litteral on trumpet lead, Davis on keys, bass and drums, and Greg Kupka, a beautiful track and arrangement to close a solid set.
