“NO PLEA’S NEEDED”

AS I LISTENED TO THE AMAZING AND SUPERB  ALBUM CALLED “A BEGGAR’S PLEA” FROM AN AMAZING MUSIC ARTIST NAMED JAMEY BARRON. FROM THE START OF THIS AMAZING ALBUM THE SONG “WET FOOTPRINTS’ PLACED A GRIP ON MY EARS TASTEBUDS, I THOUGHT HOLY CRAP, THIS IS GREAT, THE VOCALS ARE AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL, AND THE LYRICS ARE EQUALLLY SUPERB. JAMEY BARRON HAS THAT SOUND THAT REVERBARATES SMOOTH AND POLISHED SOUND, THAT REALLY NEEDS TO BE HEARD. THE SECOND TRACK HAS A BLUESY FEEL TO IT BUT NONE THE LESS JAMEY BRINGS IN HIS PURE TALENT, AND HAS A FIRM GRIP ON WHAT’S REAL AND WHAT IS TRULY JAMEY. HE’S GOT THE TOTAL PACKAGE, SUPERB LYRICS AND THAT AMAZING TOUCH & FEEL TO HIS MUSICALITY THAT TOUCHED MY HEART TO THE CORE. I’VE HEARD TWO SONGS AND JAMEY HAS PROVED THAT HE’S GOT TALENT, AND MORE. THE AMAZING ARTICULATE STRINGS AND HARMONIES ARE OUT IF THIS WORLD, AND ONCE AGAIN JAMEY BARRON DOESN’T HAVE TO BEG FOR ATTENTION, HE’S GOT IT WITH THE FIRST TWO SONGS ON THIS MIRACULOUS AND LOVELY ALBUM. THIS ALBUM HAS GAINED MY FULL ATTENTION. “SHE COMES IN THE NIGHT” JAMEY SHOWS AND BRINGS IN A TENDER SIDE THAT IS REMARKABLE, AND THIS SONG PORTRAYS THIS IN THE MOST AMAZING WAY AND IS PERHAPS MY FAVORITE ON THIS ALBUM. THE SOUND FROM JAMEY IS TRULY A WORK OF MUSIC ART, ONE SONG AT A TIME, AND THE NEXT TRACK YOU’LL HEAR IT, THE SONG IS CALLED “STAGES OF LIFE” AND THE SOUND BLEEDS PURE PASSION, AND JAMEY MAINTAINS THIS FOCUS CONSISTENTLY THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZING AND HEARTFELT MUSIC ALBUM. AS THE NEXT SONG ARRIVES THROUGH MY SPEAKERS A SONG CALLED “THE PLEA” JAMEY BARRON HAS GAINED MY TOTAL ATTENTION AND THIS AND WHAT I’VE HEARD ON THIS ALBUM IS A SUPERB MASTERPIECE OF PURE MUSIC. SONGWRITING AND REAL AND POLISHED TALENT THAT DOESN’T QUIT. JAMEY HAS THAT ACOUSTIC SOUND THAT IS MAGICALTHROUGHOUT & ON THE SONG CALLED “YOUR OWN ISLAND” IS JUST AMAZINLY BEAUTIFUL.  THE CAREFUL USE OF THE HARP AND COUPLED WITH JAMEY’S VOCALS MAKE THE MOST MEMORABLE IMPRESSION. JAMEY BARRON IS THE REAL DEAL AND ANY MUSIC SCOUT WHO WISHES TO SIGN ON A NEW ARTIST, THIS IS YOUR GUY, HIS NAME JAMEY BARRON.”SWEET JOSEPHINE” ANOTHER SONG THAT ADDS SPLENDOR AND RHYTHM AND TUCKED BETWEEN THE MUSIC AND ADDED SOUND OF BANJO STRUMS SEEM TO FLOAT THROUGHOUT THAT ADDS A LITTLE HINT OF COUNTRY.  THE SONG IS SO FINE AND JUST FLOWS EVENLY THROUGHOUT MY SPEAKERS AND JAMEYS VOCALS ARE OUTSTANDING, REACHING OUT TO THE HEAVENS GATE OF MUSIC. IMPRESSIVE YES, AMAZING YES, INCREDIBLE A TOTAL RESOUNDING YES, YES AND YES, JAMEY BARRON IS THAT YES MUSIC ARTIST THAT HAS MADE HIS FOOTPRINTS UPON MY HEART AND IN MY EARS. “TRUTH” ANOTHER ACOUSTICAL MASTERPIEICE AND JAMEY’S VOCALS ARE SIMPLY PUT UNREAL AND BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF A TRUE & AMAZING MUSIC ARTIST. “WILL BE ADORED” A SONG THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO REALLY FEEL THE EMOTION CONSISTENTLY & MASTERFULLY PLACED ON EACH SONG THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZING AND MOST GRACEFUL AND HEARTFELT MUSIC ALBUM. THIS ALBUM FEATURES AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF REAL AND HONEST PURE TALENT ARRIVING FROM A TRUE MUSIC ARTIST THAT DERSERVES YOUR EARS AND HEARTS FULL ATTENTION. “TEARS FOR A STRANGER” HAS THE BEAUTIFUL ORCHESTRATION FROM JAMEY AND IS TRULY AN AMAZING AND SOLID MUSICIANSHIP THAT SHOWCASES THE RAW AND POWERFUL EMOTION OF THE TRUE ARTISTRY OF WHO JAMEY BARRON IS. THE SONG EVOKES PURE EMOTIONAL FEELINGS AND THE SONG BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES AS I LISTENED. JAMEY BARRON HAS REALLY IMPRESSED MY MUSICAL EARS AND OPENED MY HEART TO HIS AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL LYRICS THAT KEPT THE ALBUM IN THE PLAYER FOR MORE THAN USUAL AND FOUND MYSELF PUSHING REPEAT ON MY PLAYER ON THE ALBUM SEVERAL TIMES. THE VOCALS ON THIS  HAS AN ALMOST ROY ORBISON IN STYLE AS I WAS MENTIONING THAT I DIDN’T THINK WE’D EVER HEAR THAT KIND OF SOUND IN MUSIC EVER AGAIN, HOW WRONG COULD I BE. WHAT A TRULY AMAZING VOICE. I LOVE THIS ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AND CAN’T GET ENOUGH. “WHY SIGH” JAMEY PROJECTS HIS AMAZING VOCALS BACK INTO THE SONG ONCE AGAIN AND MADE ME FEEL THAT THERE IS ACTUALLY REAL HOPE FOR REAL TALENT EMERGING FROM MY SPEAKERS AND READY TO TAKE THE MUSIC WORLD BY IT’S EARS AND ARMS AND USHER US INTO THE ELEMENT WHERE REAL MUSIC IS HEARD. FROM THE START OF THIS AMAZING MUSIC ALBUM AND ALL THE WAY THROUGH JAMEY BARRON SHOWS THE WORLD THAT THERE IS REAL TALENT AND IS DOES NOT HAVE TO PLEA, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN JAMEY BARRON AND HIS AWESOME ALBUM “A BEGGARS PLEA” TO FULFILL THAT GAP THAT IS MISSING. NOW IT HAS BEEN FOUND. MY MOST INCREDIBLE THANK YOU TO JAMEY BARRON FOR HIS AMAZING FRIENDSHIP & HIS TRULY INCREDIBLE GIFT OF SONG AND MUSIC, AND HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE ONLY THE BEGINNING OF A WONDERFUL JOURNEY FOR JAMEY BARRON AND HIS “WILL BE ADORED” MUSIC.

“FEELINGS WITH BACKBONE”

AS I AM HONORED AND PROUD TO FOLLOW UP WITH A SECOND MUSIC REVIEW OF THE SUPREMELY TALENTED AND GIFTED SINGER SONGWRITER MICHELLE WALKER AND HER NEW RELEASE ALBUM CALLED “BACKBONE”. I’VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WRITE HER LINER NOTES IN THIS MARVELOUS AND WONDERFUL MUSIC ALBUM. AS I STATED IN MY LAST REVIEW OF MICHELLE AND HER LAST ALBUM I’VE TRULY HAD A “BETTER DAY” AFTER DISCOVERING MICHELLE’S MUSIC. WITH THIS AMAZING AND TALENTED SINGER & SONGWRITER MICHELLE ARRIVES WITH THE ALBUM CALLED BACKBONE & THE FIRST SONG ON THIS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL & TRULY SPIRITED ALBUM IS CALLED “TRYING TO BE ME” THE SONG RIGHT OFF THE BAT STARTS OUT WITH THE SOUND OF TOTAL HIT MUSICALITY. MICHELLE REALLY HAS THAT VOICE THAT IS TOTALLY MIRACULOUS, AND WHEN MICHELLE SINGS SHE SINGS ABOUT REALISM, THIS SONG IS A SONG THAT REALLY SINGS HER HONESTY AND LYRICS THAT ADD THAT TRUE VALIDITY TO THEM. MICHELLE NEVER NEEDS TO TRY TO DO ANYTHING, HER VOCALS AND THE MUSICALITY OF THIS SONG ARE EQUALLY BEAUTIFUL AND NICE HARMONIES FALL RIGHT INTO PLACE. “JACK OR JILLAROO” MICHELLE CONTINUES HER AMAZING HARMONIES AND HER SMOOTH AND COMFORTING VOCALS AND THE LYRICS OF THE AND MAKE THE SONG COME ALIVE WITH A TRUTHFUL STORY ABOUT LOYALTY & TRUE FRIENDSHIP AMONG TWO FRIENDS. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “PHOENIX” IS A TRULY AMAZING TRIBUTE TO MICHELLE’S ABILITY TO CROSS OVER THE MUSIC GROOVE AND THE SONG HAS A TRULY BLUESY FEEL AND IS A REALLY NICE SONG, AND MICHELLE’S VOCALS ARE OUTSTANDING. THE NEXT SONG “BACKBONE” MICHELLE CONTINUES TO SOAR ABOVE & BEYOND ALL EXPECTAIONS IN HER AMAZING VOCALS AND THE HAVE A CATCHY FLARE AND ALLOWS ONE TO HEAR MICHELLE AND HER SHEER MUSIC ARTISTRY. THE SONG IS A TOTAL HIT AND MICHELLE ARRIVES & KICKS AND PUNCHES HER WAY  THIS GRINDY AND UP TEMPO SONG. “WE’VE GOT SOMETHING” HAS A FEEL OF OLD SCHOOL COUNTRY, HOWEVER MICHELLE ARRISES TO THE OCCASION WITH HER AMAZINGLY CATCHY AND FULL OF FLAVORFUL VOCALS, THE MUSICALITY OF HER BAND ADDS TO THE AWESOME APPEAL TO HER GIFT OF SINGING A SONG THAT JUST SOUNDS GREAT. “SUMMER’S NEARLY OVER” AN ALMOST ACCAPELLA OF SORTS, WHERE MICHELLE SHOWCASES HER SMOOTH HARMONIES AND MAKES THE SONG ONE OF THOSE FUN SONGS TO SING ALONG TO, AND MAKES ONE YEARN FOR SUMMER. THE NEXT AMAZINGLY GREAT SONG ON THIS ALBUM IS CALLED “SHE’S GOT CLASS” WHERE MICHELLE ADDRESSES THE ISSUES THAT SOME GIRLS HAVE TO DEAL WITH HAVING CLASS. “WHAT I LOVE” AS THE SONG STARTS I FELT THE TOTAL TALENT IN THIS SONG, THIS SONG HAS A MATURE AND REAL HONEST FEEL TO IT AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES ON THE ALBUM. MICHELLE IS ONE OF THOSE SINGERS THAT I CAN IMMEDIATLEY TELL FROM THE START OF A SONG WHAT KIND OF SONG IT’S GOIN GTO BE, AND THIS ONE IS A MOST ENJOYABLE SONG.  “BURNING UP INSIDE” THE BLUES ARRIVE AGAIN THROUGH MICHELLE’S AMAZING VOCAL RANGE AND THE SMOOTHNESS AROUND THE CURVES OF THE SONG MAKE IT A REAL PIECE OF SOLID MUSIC, ONE I REALLY ENJOYED VERY WELL. “COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU” A DUET WITH TYSON COLMAN AND THERE DESCRIPTION OF A COUPLE THAT CAN’T STAND THE WAY THINGS ARE WITH EACH OTHER, HOWEVER, THEY CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT EACH OTHER, AND MICHELLE REALLY MAKES THE SONG FEEL ALIVE AND A BREATHING SONG THAT PROJECTS REAL AND HONEST FEELIINGS THROUGH THE MUSIC AND HARMONIES OF BOTH MICHELLE & TYSON. “WHEN I TAKE THE STAGE” MICHELLE AND HER VOCALS ARE OUTSTANDING AND HER VOICE REALLY BRINGS IN THAT SOUND OF MATURITY AND SOUNDS AMAZINGLY CONFIDENT AND STRONG, I PERSONALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH HER HARMONIES THAT ARE JUST OUTSTANDING AND THE SONG HAS AN UPBEAT RHYTHM THAT MICHELLE KEEPS THE PULSE ALIVE WITH HER PERFECT VOCALS THAT MAKE THE SONG FUN AND CATCHY AND ONE THAT HAS RADIO FRIENDLY THROUGHOUT. “HOMEWARD CALL” MICHELLE HAS THAT OLD STYLE WITH FIDDLE AND STRUMMING IN AN ALMOST BLUEGRASS FEEL TO THIS SONG AND IS FRESH AND HAS A TEMPO THAT ALLOWS TO PLACE THOSE DANCING SHOES ON AND START SHOWING YOUR STUFF ON THE DANCE FLOOR.  ALL IN ALL I LOVED THIS ALBUM, THE ALBUM BRINGS IN MICHELLE AT HER BEST, AND SHE SEEMS TO HAVE A MATURITY IN HER VOCALS THROUGHOUT, AND THE MIX IS SUPERB AND MICHELLE SHOWS HER REAL TALENT AND TRUE MUSICAL DIVERSITY AND HER ABILITY TO CHANGE IT UP, FROM OLD STYLE COUNTRY TO BLUES TO FALVORFUL AND AMAZINGLY FUN SONGS THAT TRULY HAVE “BACKBONE” TO THEM. I THANK MICHELLE OF HER TREMENDOUS GIFT OF PURE MUSICIANSHIP & WONDERFUL SONGWRITING AND HER TOTAL MUSICALITY. I ALSO THANK HER FOR HER “MATESHIP” AND BRINGING THIS WONDERFUL ALBUM TO MY EARS AND ALWAYS LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING MORE FROM THIS AMAZINGLY TALENTED MUSICIAN AND MATESHIP MICHELLE WALKER AND ALLOWING ME TO DO “WHAT I LOVE”

SIMPLISTIC, BUT BEAUTIFUL

WHAT A PURE AND HONEST FEELING ALBUM IS WHAT I USE TO DESCRIBE AN ALBUM FROM CANADIAN SINGER SONGWRITER WANDA GRONHOVD AND HER ALBUM CALLED “SHIFTING SANDS” THE FIRST SONG ON THIS AMAZINGLY AND RAW AND NATURAL FEELING ALBUM IS CALLED “SHIFTING SANDS” AND THE FIRST TRACK IS CALLED “NO MORE WORDS” AND WANDA AND HER VOCALS ARE SIMPLY AMAZING AND VERY NATURAL. THE FIRST SOUND THAT I HEARD WAS AN ALMOST JOAN BAEZ SOUND TO IT. A FRESH AND VERY NATURAL FEEL TO IT. WANDA HAS THAT TREMENDOUS SONGWRITING ABILITY THAT SPEAKS TO YOU, AND SINGS WITH PURE PASSION AND CONVICTIONS ARRIVING FROM HER HEART. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “I COULD NOT SPEAK FOR MYSELF” WANDA DISPLAYS HER AFFECTIONS THROUGH VOCALS IN AN ALMOST ANGELIC APPROACH AND REALLY IS A SOOTHING SENSATION TO HEAR ON EACH SONG. AS I LISTENED TO THE ALBUM THE NEXT SONG CALLED “GRIEF” WANDA BRINGS IN HER PURE HONESTY AND REALLY WHAT A TREMENDOUS GIFT OF WRITING AND THE ABILITY TO MAKE ONE FEEL HER EMOTIONS AND CONVICTIONS AND THOUGHTS AND BRING THEM TO A SONG, REALLY MAKES THE LISTENER GLUED TO THEIR SPEAKERS AS IT DID FOR ME. WANDA GRONHOVD, HAS THAT NATURAL ABILITY TO SING A SONG AND MAKE ONE HEAR WHAT SHE’S SINGING ABOUT, WHERE SHE SINGS ABOUT LIFE, AND THINGS THAT HAVE AFFECTED HER AND HER PASSION SINKS IN EVERY SONG THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL ALBUM. “OH SISTER” WANDA ALLOWS YOU TO HEAR THE FOLK AND TRUTHFUL SOUND THAT ARE SIMPLE BUT TRUTHFUL AND THOUGHTFULLY PROVOKED SONGS, AND VERY EMOTIONAL AT TIMES. WHAT MAKES A GOOD SONGWRITER IS ONE WHO WRITES FROM THE HEART WITH CONVICTIONS AND WANDA ON THIS AMAZING SOUNDING ALBUM BRINGS THESE ELEMENTS TO THE SURFACE ON EVERY SONG. “SHIFTING SANDS” WANDA SHOWS THE ELEMENT OF STORY TELLING IN THIS SONG AND WANDA AND MAKES ONE BRING IN YOUR EARS CLOSER TO HEAR THE COMPLETE STORY WORD FOR WORD. WANDA HAS A CONSISTENT ABILITY TO TRANSFORM HER WORDS INTO AMAZING AND VERY ENTERTAINING SONGS THAT ARRIVE FROM HER HEART. AS A WRITER THAT WRITES FROM MY HEART, I HEAR THIS ON ALL OF HER AWESOME SONGWRITING AND SUPERB VOCAL RANGE THAT IT SO SIMPLISTIC, BUT VERY FULLFILLING AS A LISTENER TO HER SONGS. “THANKS PAST ME” WANDA AND HER BAND ARE SUPERIOR IN LENDING IN THEIR FLAVOR INTO HER SONGS AS THEY UTILIZE THE BANJO AND THE DOBRO THAT COMPLIMENT WANDA’S TREMENDOUS AND FLAVORFUL STYLE IN HER SINGING AND HER TOTAL MUSICALITY. “UNEVEN FOOTING” ADDS A FULL ARRAY OF ELECTRIC GUITARS TO THE MIX WHICH PICKS UP THE TEMPO AND ADDS TO WANDA AND HER UPLIFTING VOCALS. “WHERE ARE YOU GOING” THE LAST TRACK ON THIS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL ALBUM, WANDA USES HER OUTSTANDING VOICE MAKE THIS ALBUM AN EASY CHOICE. WANDA HAS AN INCREDIBLE VOCAL RANGE AND LENDS TO THIS REALLY SUPERB EXAMPLE OF FINE MUSIC AND SONGWRITING. HER VOCALS ARE REALLY SUPERB AND ONE THAT ISN’T HEARD OF IN SOME OF THE MUSIC THAT IS CURRENTLY BEING PLAYED ON THE RADIO, BUT IN MY OPINION WNDA GRONHOVD NEEEDS TO BE HEARD, FOR HER INCREDIBLE MUSIC AND HER AWESOME VOCALS AND SIMPLISTIC MUSIC WITH VALUE AND MEANING. MANY THANKS TO WANDA FOR ALLOWING ME TO HEAR SUCH A SUPERB ALBUM AND BEING PART OF HER AMAZING MUSICAL JOURNEY AND HOPEFULLY THE “SHIFTING SANDS’ WILL PREVAIL IN WANDAS DIRECTION AND BRING HER MUSIC TO THE EARS OF RADIO AND THOSE OF US, LIKE ME THAT CRAVE HONESTY AND PURE MUSIC LIKE WANDA GRONHOVD HAS TO OFFER US.

“REMARKABLE & STILL RELEVANT”

AS A AVID MUSIC LOVER, AND AS A MUSIC JOURNALIST, I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WRITING MUSIC ALBUM REVIEWS, AND ONE OF THE LOVED REVIEWS I’VE WRITTEN WAS A REVIEW I WROTE A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO ON A VINTAGE & CLASSIC ROCK BAND NAMED “FRIJID PINK”. THE BAND IS A PHENOMENAL BAND AND AS I STATED IN MY LAST REVIEW OF THEM, I USED THE WORDS “TOTAL RELEVANT” AND THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE. WITH AN ALBUM NAMED AFTER THERE HOME TOWN “MADE IN DETROIT”. THIS BAND JUST SURPASED THEIR 50TH ANNIVERSARY AS A BAND. DRUMMER & WHO I CONSIDER “FRONTMAN” FOR THE BAND RICK STEVERS, HAS SHARED THIS WITH ME AND GRACED ME WITH A COPY OF THE ALBUM FROM 2014 CALLED “MADE IN DETROIT” TO QUOTE THE BAND THESE GUYS ARE MORE THAN THE “BAND NEXT DOOR” AND THEY START OF THIS AMAZING AND REALLY ENTERTAINING AND FRESH ALBUM & APPROACH  THE SOUNDS OF TODAY. THE SONG CALLED “BAND NEXT DOOR, IS A RIPPER AND GRIPPER THE GUITARS ARE STRUMMING AND HAVE A SUPERB SOUND. ALONG WITH THE BEAT OF DRUMS KEEPING THE RHYTHM AND KEEPING MY HEAD BOPPING AWAY TO THE MIRACULOUS MUSIC BEING HEARD. AS I LISTENED THE NEXT SONG CALLED “TEAR” THE SONG HAS A REAL 60’S VIBE, WITH AN ADDED ELEMENT OF BLUES AND INCORPORATES AMAZING LYRICS AND TOTAL MUISCALITY. WITH THIS BEING SAID THIS SONG BRINGS IN THE KEYBOARDS OF CHUCK MANGUS THAT RINGS IN A TRUE 60’S FLARE AND IS A REALLY FRESH AND NICE FEELING THAT THIS SOUND IS STILL AROUND WITHIN MUSIC OF THIS AMAZING ALBUM. THE NEXT SONG IS A TRUE MASTERY AND SHEER MUSIC THAT IS AN AMAZING FEEL THAT TRULY “TAKE ME BACK” TO A TIME WHERE MUSIC LIKE THIS RULED ON AND OFF THE STAGE. THE SAX AND THE SOUND IS SUPERB AND BROUGHT MY MIND BACK TO THIS VERY INTREGAL PART OF MUSIC HISTORY. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “DETROIT ROCK N ROLL, HAS A REAL AND AMAZING ABILITY TO LEAN YOUR EARS BENT TOWARDS THE 60’S PSYCHEDELIC TIME OF MUSIC. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “LIVING BLUES” HAS THE ABILITY TO MOVE AND GROOVE YOU, THE GUITARS AREA BLAZING AND REALLY RIPPING AT THE SEAMS, WHERE I REALLY FELT, THE EMOTIONS THROUGH THE MUSIC , AND ONCE AGAIN HAS A REAL ROCK AND ROLL FEEL TO THE SONG, WHERE IT GOES TO PROVE THAT ONE IS NEVER TOO OLD TO ROCK & ROLL. “COME KNOCKING” HAS A REAL BLUESY FEEL TO IT, BUT ADDS IN THE CONSISTENT ELEMENT OF THAT 60’S VIBE AND SOUND THAT HAS BEEN ABSENT WITHIN THE MUSIC BANDS OF TODAY. MOST BANDS FROM THE 60’S AND 70’S SHARED THIS SOUND. “PROMISES” SLOWS DOWN THE TEMPO A LITTLE TO HEAR, IF YOU WILL THE TENDER SIDE OF THE BAND,  BUT REMAINS WITH THE SOUND THAT IS REMARKABLE AND WONDERFUL AND IS TRULY A SOUND THAT ONLY FRIJID PINK HAS. THE SOUNDS OF FRIJID PINK, ALSO HAS AN ELEMENT OF THEATRIC ROCK TO IT WITH THE SONGS “PROMISES & COMING HOME” SHARE THIS, IN ADDITION TO THIS  BOTH HAVE THAT FANCY FOOT STOMPIN’ AND GEAR JAMMING SOUND THAT KEEP THE SPEAKERS ROCKING AND POUNDING THROUGH THE AIR. AS I LISTENED TO THESE SONGS I REALLY GOT A TRUE FEEL FOR THE BAND THAT I’VE ALWAYS ENJOYED, AND NOW BROUGHT ME TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF SERIOUS LOVE FOR THE BAND & THEIR COMPLETE SOUND THAT IS TRULY REMARKABLE. FRIJID PINK IS ONE THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME. “WICKED WOMAN” BROUGHT MY EARS TO FULL ATTENTION, AS I FELT AS I STEPPED BACK INTO TIME WITH THE BAND AND THE TOTAL COMPLETNESS OF THE BAND. THIS SONG HAS IT ALL, PROBABLY MY FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM IT INCOROPORATES THE ENTIRE BAND, & ALLOWS YOU TO TRULY GET A FEEL OF THE MUSICALITY, WHILE  HEARING THE TOGETHERNESS OF THE BAND, GUITARS, KEYBOARDS, DRUMS AND HAS THAT ABILTY TO CATCH YOU,  AND MAKE YOU ASK PLEASE PLAY THAT AGAIN. WITH THIS, THE NEXT SONG CALLED “SLIP AWAY” FRIJID PINK SHOWCASE THEIR TALENT AND KEEPS THE TOTAL RELEVANT FEELING AND TOTAL AWESOME SOUND THAT  TRULY MISSED AND APPRECIATED BY MYSELF AND OTHER TRUE MUSIC FANS OUT THERE. THE SONG HAS THAT ONCE AGAIN TRUE “ROCK N ROLL FEEL TO IT AND IS NICE TO KNOW THAT ROCK HAS A VOICE AND THIS SONG ALLOWS YOU TO REALLY TAKE NOTICE THAT ROCK N ROLL FEEL. “WINK” ANOTHER SONG AND A KIND OF SHOWOFF KIND OF SONG, AND HAS A FUN FEEL TO IT, HOWEVER THE SONG IS TRULY A SOUND THAT IS MISSING FROM OUR EVERYDAY HOUSEHOLD BAND, THE SONG SHOWCASES GUITAR RIFFS AND THE TOTAL PACKAGE OF WHO FRIJID PINK AS A BAND. FOR A BAND WHO HAS BEEN RELEVANT FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS, AND AN AMAZING ALBUM THAT SHOWCASES THE BAND AND THEIR REMARKABLE SOUND THAT ALLOWS ONE TO STEP BACK INTO THE MUSICAL TIME CAPSULE AND REVISIT AND ALL THE WHILE KNOWING THAT THE SOUND IS AMAZING IN YESTERYEAR AS IT IS TODAY. A TRULY AMAZING BAND AND A BAND WHO TRULY IS “MADE IN DETROIT” AND BAND THAT I AM TRULY HONORED TO WRITE A MUSIC REVIEW FOR  AND TO BE ALLOWED TO HEAR THE SOUND OF ROCK AND ROLL AT IT’S FINEST. I THANK RICK STEVERS FOR HIS AMAZING FRIENDSHIP & KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION HE HAS SHARED WITH ME ABOUT THIS AMAZING AND YES “TOTAL RELEVANT” BAND AND LOOKING FORWARD TO KEEPING THIS IN MY OWN TIME CAPSULE OF AWESOME MEMORIES, AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE WHAT THIS AMAZING BAND ARRIVES WITH NEXT, A BAND WHO IS TRULY “MADE IN DETROIT”

“MAGICAL, MUSICAL.. AND ALIVE

AS I LISTENED TO THE LATEST ALBUM FROM MUSIC EXTRORINAIRE RON KORB AND HIS AMAZING AN UPLIFTING ALBUM CALLED “WORLD CAFE” AND WHAT AN TOTALLY VIBRANT AND PICK ME UP ALBUM. THE ALBUM HAS A SOUND OF FLAMENCO THEMES ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND RON’S FLUTE IS SIMPLY PUT, FLAVORFUL & AMAZING & VIBRANT. THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “BAILAR CONMIGO” INTERPETED “DANCE WITH ME” AN WHAT AN AMAZING PIECE OF MUSICAL ART. RON CONTINUES TO PAINT YOUR EARS WITH TOTAL CLARITY AND USES ALL THE COLORS OF THE MUSICAL PALLET THROUGHOUT. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “SANS REGRET” AND RON HAS THAT SOUND THAT BRINGS IN A LITTLE BIT OF OLD ITALY TO IT, BUT REMAINS VIBRANT AND PUNCHY TO YOUR EARS CONTENT.  THE NEXT SONG “CORDOBA” RON POPS IN WITH THE FLAMENCO PULSE AND HIS FLUTE WORK IS SIMPLY AMAZING AND SO COLORFUL AND CHALKED FULL OF VIBRANT COLORS, THAT CAN BE HEARD THROUGH THIS AWESOME FEEL OF SOLID MUSICAL MASTERY. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “HILARIO” RON KEEPS THE PACE AT A FEVER PITCH, AND THE TEMPO IS SPLENDID AND VERY MUCH ALIVE THROUGH THIS SONG, AND SHOWCASES RON’S AMAZING ABILITY TO KEEP YOUR EARS TOTALLY TICKLED. “ISLAND LIFE” RON  BRINGS IN A FLAVOR OF REAL CARIBEAN FEEL AND TOUCH TO HIS WONDERFUL FLUTE PLAYING, AND I PERSONALLY FELT THE OCEAN WAVES CRASHING AROUND ME AND RON BRINGS THIS IN WITH ALL OF HIS AMAZING MUSICALITY. ON TRACK SIX A SONG CALLED “ARGENTINA” THE SONG IS SIMPLY PUT AN AMAZING PIECE OF MUSICAL ORGASM, BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH RON’S PERFECTION WITH THE FLUTE. “TAKE MY HAND” RON CONTINUES TO POUR ON THE STEAM WITH HIS FLAWLESS AND SEEMLESS ABILITY ON HIS FLUTE, THAT MAKES YOU VISALIZE AND ACTUAL FEEL THE MUSICAL VIBES THROUGH HIS TREMENDOUS MUSICAL PRESENTATION THROUGHOUT. THIS IS TRULY A REMARKABLE AND AMAZING MUSIC MASTERPIECE. “PATAGONIA” SLOWS THE TEMPO DOWN A LITTLE, BUT REMAINS VIBRANT AND CARRIES THAT FEELING OF ALIVENESS. THE NEXT SONG IS CALLED “SAN REGRET REPRISE” AND RON RELIVES THAT FEELING AND KEEPS THE SPEAKERS EMITTING TOTAL VIBRANCY AND WONDER, WONDER WHAT’S NEXT ON THIS MIRACULOUS AND SUPERB SOUNDING ALBUM. “NEW ORLEANS” IS THE NEXT TRACK WHICH SHOWCASES RON’S IMPACTFUL & VIBRANT SOUND AND WITH THIS SONG RON PROVES WITHOUT A REASONABLE DOUBT THAT HE IS A WORTHY CONTENDER, WHEN IT COMES TO CROSSING OVER INTO THE REALM OF JAZZ MUSIC AND BRINGS IN THE WORLD FEEL TO HIS MUSIC. AS A TRAVELER AROUND THE WORLD RON’S VERY IMPACTFUL AND MUSIC STYLE REFLECT HIS WORLDLY TRAVELS. I REALLY HEARD IT THROUGHOUT THIS NARRATIVE AND SO VERY EXPRESSIVE MUSIC ALBUM. AS I LISTENED TO THIS AMAZING AND POWERFUL FORCE OF MUSIC, WITH THE SONG “CARNIVAL” I CAN TELL YOU RON, IS WORTHY OF AMAZING PRAISE AND DESERVES YOUR EARS ATTENTION AND I NOW KNOW THE SCUTTLE OF WHY HE HAS BEEN NOIMINATED FOR SO MANY MUSIC AWARDS. RON’S MUSIC IS EXCITING FROM THE FIRST TRACK ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE LAST SONG CALLED “SANS REGRET FINALE” WHERE RON REALLY BREATHES HIS TALENT INTO YOUR SPEAKERS AND THIS SONG IS MAGNIFICIENT AND BEAUTIFUL AND THE ORCHESTRATION IS OUT OF THIS WORLD, THE FULL SPECTRUM OF BEAUTY AND CHARM THAT EXPRESSES THE TRUE ART THAT IS TRULY RON KORB. THIS PARTICULAR SONG IS ACTUALLY MY FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM, HOWEVER THE WHOLE ALBUM IS SPLENDID AND SUPERB AND ALLOWS YOU TO FEEL THE VIBRANT AND MOST COLORFUL PICTURES PAINTED THROUGH RON’S AMAZING FLUTE PLAYING THAT IS NOT ONLY PERFECTION,BUT IT DRAWS YOU IN AND KEEPS YOU WITH IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH. I WISH TO THANK RON KORB FOR HIS WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP, AND HIS INCREDIBLE GIFT OF MUSIC TO US ALL. LASTLY THANKING RON FOR ALLOWING ME TO HAVE A TRULY AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITHIN HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY TRAVELING ALL AROUND THE WORLD WITH RON KORB AND HIS TRANSFORMING AND BEAUTIFUL MUSIC.

PROJECTED LOVE ALWAYS & FOREVER”

IT’S AMAZING 24 YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE WE MUSIC FANS HEARD FROM MUSIC ICON & LEGEND STEVE PERRY OF FAMED MUSIC ROCK BAND AND 1996 WITH THEIR SONG “WHEN YOU LOVE A WOMAN’ IT WAS OVER THE DREAM, THE SOUND, THE SMOOTH AND SEXUAL LOVE BALLADS OF LEAD SINGER STEVE PERRY AND JONATHON CAIN. WITH THAT CHAPTER OF HIS LIFE CLOSED & A GREATEST HITS PACKAGE WHICH CONTAINED THE SONGS OF STEVE’S SOLO EFFORTS, THIS PACKAGE BEGIN TO FADE INTO MUSIC HISTORY, SO DID THE STEVE PERRY SOUND. STEVE’S FORMER MUSICAL BROTHERS REFORMED THE BAND JOURNEY WITH A NEW LEAD SINGER, WHICH SOUNDED REMARKABLY LIKE STEVE’S VOCALS, AND TOURED WITH THE NAME OF JOURNEY, SINGING ALL THE FAVORITES BUT AS A LONG TIME FAN AND FOLLOWER OF STEVE PERRY IT JUST WASN’T STEVE PERRY AND JOURNEY. I STILL BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF STEVE’S INCREDIBLE VOCAL RANGE AND THE MAGNITUDE OF HIS SUPERB WRITING SKILLS WOULD RETURN ONE DAY. WELL 24 YEARS LATER THIS DAY HAS ARRIVED STEVE PERRY RELEASED A SOLO PROJECT ENTITLED “TRACES”, AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ALBUM IT IS. IF YOU ARE A FAN OF STEVE PERRY HE HAS NOT LOST HIS MAGICAL AND POWERFUL WAY AROUND A BALLAD AND LOVE SONGS THAT TRULY SPEAK FROM THE HEART. THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “NO ERASIN’ ” AND STEVE IS INCREDIBLE HIS VOICE CRISP AND VIBRANT AS I RECALL, AND MY DREAM HAS COME TO REALITY WITH THIS INCREDBILE SONG THAT HAS STEVE’S SIGNITURE OF LOVE ALL OVER IT. WITH THIS COMES THE NEXT SONG CALLED “WE’RE STILL HERE’ AND THIS SONG IS JUST AS INCREDIBLE AS THE PREVIOUS, THE ABILITIES OF STEVE PERRY ARE EVIDENT THROUGHOUT & THIS SONG & THE ENTIRE ALBUM, REFLECTS AN REAL IMAGE AND EMOTION OF A TRUE STEVE PERRY AND JOURNEY SONG. THE LAST TWO SONGS AND THE WHOLE ALBUM IN IT’S ENTIRETY REALLY REACHES PLACES IN THE HEART, WHERE ONLY STEVE PERRY HAS THAT ABILITYTO TOUCH. THE ALBUM IS AN INCREDIBLE EAR CANDY PIECE OF MUSIC AND FLOWS SMOOTHLY AND REFINED AND POLISHED LIKE A GEM OF DIAMONDS AND GOLD. THE NEXT SONG HAS THIS CALLED “MOST OF ALL” AS A STEVE PERRY FAN AND MUSIC PUBLICIST JOURNALIST THE MUSICALITY IS NON STOP ON THIS ALBUM & REALLY SHOWCASES STEVE AT HIS BEST. WITH THIS IN MIND, THE NEXT SONG “NO MORE CRYIN” I FELT STEVE’S VOCALS POURING OUT WITH EMOTION AND TOTAL REFLECTION OF HIS HEART FELT FEELINGS WITHIN HIS AMAZING AND ONCE AGAIN HIS ABILITY TO SHOW AND SING OF LOVE IS SUPERB. AS I LISTENED TO THE NEXT SONG “IN THE RAIN” THE SONG REALLY IS AN AMAZING PIECE OF MUSIC MASTERY AT IT’S BEST, AND STEVE REALLY ALLOWS YOU TO FEEL HIS TRUE EMOTIONAL PLEAS FOR LOVE AND DRAWS YOU IN. THE MUSIC IS AMAZING THE BAND THAT SURROUNDS THESE SONGS UTILIZES STRINGS AND THAT CAREFUL & THOUGHFUL SOUNDS THAT BRING IN A TRUE REMARKABLE SOUND, THAT ALLOW ONE TO REALLY HEAR STEVE’S INCREDIBLE LYRICS AND SMOTHNESS, THIS IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM, ALTOUGH I MUST SAY THE WHOLE ALBUM HAS GRIPPED ME IN THE MEMORIES OF HOW GREAT IT IS TO HAVE STEVE BACK IN MY SPEAKERS. THE PACE PICKS UP WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “SUN SHINES GRAY” AND BRINGS IN A REAL FEEL FOR A ROCK AND ROLL SONG AND IS REMINCIENT OF STEVE’S PREVIOUS SOLO WORK, BUT NONE THE LESS,  HAS A FRESH FEEL TO IT. “YOU BELONG TO ME” THE NEXT SONG ON THIS MIRACULOUS AND AMAZING ALBUM IS ANOTHER REFLECTION OF STEVE’S PAST WORK, HOWEVER WITH THE STRINGS TUCKED WITHIN THE CONFINES OF STEVE’S VOCALS REALLY SHOW STEVE’S MASTERY OF HIS SOLID WRITING ABILITIES AND INCREDIBLE MUSICALITY. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “EASY TO LOVE” BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF SMOOTHNESS AND STEVE’S GIFT OF A BLUESY KIND OF FEEL TO IT, IN AN ALMOST “LOVIN’ TOUCHIN’ SQUEEZIN” FEEL TO IT, AND IS REMARKABLE AND POLISHED AND BROUGHT CURRENT RELEVANCY TO MY EARS CONTENTMENT. AS I LISTENED I THOUGHT HOW MUCH STEVE HAS MATURED OVER THE YEARS WITH HIS APROACH IN HIS MUSIC AND HIS TRUE TALENT HAS EVOLVED INTO AN INCREDIBLE PIECE OF TOTAL MUSIC MASTERY AT IT’S FINEST. STEVE PERRY HAS ALWAYS HAD A HUGE IMPACT ON MUSIC HISTORY FROM HIS DAYS WITH JOURNEY AND WITH HIS SOLO EFFORTS, AND THIS ALBUM HAS THE FEEL OF A GREAT JOURNEY ALBUM AND A GREAT STEVE PERRY SOLO PROJECT AND PROVES THAT STEVE HASN’T LOST HIS TREMENDOUS GIFT OF THE LOVE BALLAD. THE LAST SONG ON THIS AMAZINGLY SMOOTH AND SOULFUL FEELING OF AN ALBUM IS CALLED “WE FLY” AND STEVE BRINGS IN HIS AMAZINGLY AND I FELT THE ALMOST HAUNTING VOCALS IN HIS MUSIC CATALOG ON THIS SONG, BUT DESPITE THIS STEVE PERRY HAS NOT LOST ANY OF HIS MAGICAL ABILITIES TO WRITE AND PRODUCE A MAGICAL FEELING SONG THAT REACH OUT TO YOU AND TOUCH YOUR HEART IN WAYS THAT ARE PURELY MAGICAL AND REAL AND FELT AS YOU LISTEN TO THIS TRULY REMARKABLE AND AMAZING MUSIC CONTRIBUTION TO MUSIC. I THANK STEVE PERRY FOR HIS INCREDIBLE FRIENDSHIP & HIS MAGICAL AND AMAZING GIFT OF SONG AND MUSIC AND PERHAPS CATCH HIM ON MY JOURNEY THROUGH THIS SUPERB LIFE WITH WONDERFUL MUSIC LIKE THIS.
