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!

Mario Rossi Band - Smoke Burst - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Smoke Burst, from Mario Rossi Band and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with title track, Smoke Burst, Mario Rossi on lead vocal and guitar really gets it going. His fat guitar tone really sets the theme and with Richard Fermino on trumpet, sax and trombone, Ede Boy on keys, Marcelo Rocha on bass and stiff drum work by Rafael Cacavallo, this track is a great opener. Slow blues, It Means Blues, features Lu Vitti on lead vocal giving the track real grit. Rossi's guitar phrasing is strong and Boy's key solo really make this my favorite track on the release. Jammin' For Jimi is a cool rocker with Rossi laying down some real nice blues guitar riffs over a tight bottom by Rocha and Cacavallo. Wrapping the release is another bluesy track, Cold Lonely Nights, with Rossi on lead vocal and showcasing his cutting blues riffs. With a solid solo by Boy on organ and Fermino adding full trumpet, sax and trombone work, this is a strong closer.
