Davide Pannozzo - Unconditionallove - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Unconditionallove, from Davide Pannozzo, and it's realy cool. Opening with Six Wires, guitarist & lead guitar player, Davide Pannozzo sets the pace with a strutting funky track with a solid bass line from Will Lee and his own melodic lead. Joined by Steve Jordan and Shawn Pelton on drums and Olli Rockberger and Ricky Peterson on Hammond and keys,  this is a super start. Rocker, One & Only has a definite radio hook, cool melody and tight beat. Chasing Illusions has a real nice modern take on the delta blues with contemporary lines. I particularly like Pannozzo's vocal pairing with Lee's bass lines. George Harrison's Wah Wah is a nice surprise with a more key laden refrain than Harrison's own but with a cool Pannozzo styled guitar lead. Very nice. The Purest Thing is a warm melodic jazz guitar melody. Extremely clean. Billy Cobham's Stratus is always one of my favorites and this one, driven by the intense bass lines of lee is no exception. Pannozzo's guitar lead is warm and fluid and the drum work is clean and tight. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Lord Knows What's In My Heart, a soothing guitar lead melody with pure tones. Shimmery keys, a deep bass bottom and sure lead work by Pannozzo makes this a strong closer for a really nice release.

Born Electric - Davide Pannozzo & Loud Stuff - New Release Review


I came across Davide Pannozzo about 6 months or so ago when I was looking for talent and I was blown away. I have been awaiting this cd which he told me at the time he was working on and it's killer. Now it's not straight blues, but it has a lot of blues and Davide is a very accomplished guitar player. If you like guitars, you should love this recording. In any case, here's my review of Born Electric, the new release by Davide Pannozzo & Loud Stuff.Davide Pannozzo - Guitar & Vocal, Claudio Romano - Drums
Lello Somma - Bass with Special Guest: Robben Ford, David Garfield, Carl Verheyen and Pippo Guarnera. Who Cares is a light jazzy track with guest appearance by Guarnera. It takes a while to get to it, but Davide plays some extremely tasty riffs at the bridge. It appears that this song will be the airplay song. Stone Marten Blues, again with Guarnera guesting, is a driving blues with a modern flair. Davide shows his chops with an extended solid solo which has some pretty cool jazz and blues riffs throughout. A very strong track. Woman's Love, featuring David Garfield, is constructed like a soul ballad. Pannozzo again stretches his wings with a very tasty guitar solo. You won't find these riffs on most of your run of the mill blues albums...believe me. Walkin' In LA is a hot fusion instrumental. It has a very unusual rhythm pattern and one of my favorites on the cd. This tune gives the band a real opportunity to improvise and away they go. Think Robben Ford or Larry Carlton. You Never Know Me Well is an airplay oriented track featuring Robben Ford. As you might expect with two world class guitar players on one track there are some very tasty solo's on this track. Each has his own distinct sound and style and it's relatively easy to discern their exchange. Goin' On is a quiet ballad with slide accompaniment. The Wind Cries Mary featuring Garfield, is given a very interesting twist with vocal harmonies and and an active bass line. The guitar solo has a little more funky take on it that you have probably ever thought of on this track but it is very cool. Always been partial to this song and Pannozzo has done a great job. The instrumental portion of this song is really interesting featuring each of the accomplished band members. Once again Pannozzo demonstrates that he's no slouch on guitar. Turning Point, featuring Carl Verheyen, takes more of a jazz approach. Again an instrumental with very strong bass and rhythm line. The guitar work on this track is a bit more experimental in nature and is sure to quench your thirst for quick tasty jazz runs as well as obtuse wailing soloing. I really like this track. Light My Way, again featuring Guarnera, has the r&b structure and actually puts me in mind of Johnny Guitar Watson quite a bit. The recording finishes out with Mr. Becks Brush With The Blues. Pannozzo doesn't just mimic Jeff's every note but makes it his own. This is a great modern blues jam and one I'm certain anyone who likes transitional blues will love. Pannozzo shows what he's got and he had a lot of great riffs up his sleeve. For a major artist like Davide to take on a guitar titan's tune and make it his own takes a lot of guts and Pannozzo really shines. This cd is a great listen and I'm certain that you will find it refreshing.

New and fresh contemporary blues records, with international special guests Robben Ford, Carl Verheyen & David Garfield

Hello, I’m Davide Pannozzo.

I’m from Italy, but I’m moving in London in few weeks. What I’m trying to do is raise funding to finalize this album, my first solo album, produced by me and recorded in Italy in July 2011. Many international special guests have played on it: Robben Ford, David Garfield, Carl Verheyen & Pippo Guarnera.

The recording and mixing process is completely done. The recording and mixing process is completely done. Now I need funding to do some video clips for the singles and launch a campaign for radio air play. "

I’ve made available some special items and experiences for you – you will see a list on the right hand side of this page so just pick the item you want and it will be yours! I will also be donating a portion of funds raised to Emergency, a charity which offers free of charge and high quality heath care to war and poverty victims.

I hope you’ll come on this journey with me. It will be fun!

Thank you!
Davide

Da anni, l’associazione umanitaria di Gino Strada offre cure mediche gratuite alle vittime di guerra e della povertà in Afghanistan, Cambogia, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Italia, e ovunque ce ne sia bisogno.

Absolutely Live - Davide Pannozzo And Loud Stuff



I just listened to an EP by Davide Pannozzo called Absolutely Live. The cd is surprisingly fresh and bright with more of a Robbin Ford type of sound than anything else I can think to compare to but certainly not a R Ford clone by any means. A couple of cover tunes here but a very enjoyable recording to listen to. Certainly a player that we'll want to keep our eyes on for future work!

Little Wing - Davide Pannozzo



Davide was born in Formia 26 years ago and is currently considered by critics and audiences the rising star of international blues guitar.



Growing up in the rhythm of Jimi Hendrix , thanks to the shared passion of the parents for the Blues, he began studying classical guitar at the age of six years, showing an early age his natural inclination for music.



At the age of 14 years supports the first tests in the conservatory: he graduated in music theory, and theory and in September the same year he took the classical guitar for lower (fifth year) at the Conservatory of Avellino 'D. Cimarosa' under the guidance of Maestro Giuseppe Possemato, which will be his first great leader in the vast world of music, classical and electric.



Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters, as well as Scott Henderson, Mike Stern, Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley: a new multi-faceted sound that presents a tribute to old blues of the past with deep roots and a black eye the new music world that the millennium, just beginning, is now proposing.



Inevitable human and artistic growth that has taken him on stages of the major blues festivals in Italy: from Pistoia Blues Festival at Liri Blues Festival via the Vicenza Blues Festival and the Torrita Blues Festival .



His talent has been recognized by major characters, like Magic Slim and Big Time Sarah, and all lovers of good music, which underscore not only his technical ability, the result of study and dedication to the music, but also the genius, the natural unconsciousness to amaze and excite.
