Well, a musician that has an incredible sounding and showcases this through his latest music project. The music artist Damien Bonazzoli and his album called “The Endless Highway” the album has tremendous guitaristic flare and lots of blues influences. The album starts out with the song called “An Unexpected Truth” and showcases an almost flamencoish style that adds to the appeal. The song has a sound of a Mason Williams “Classical Gas” feel to it but Damien adds his powerful guitar fingers to the mix and does an exceptional job riff after riff. As I continued my voyage through this really superb virtuoso guitarist I picked up Damiens feel for perfection in all of his true musical styling. “Invicta” a song that rings out and spells out a tremendous reach for the blues that and I heard the electricfication throughout this song. Damien is truly talented and shows his amazing abilities that hits on the cusp of the musical guitar heavens. With the next track called “Wildcat Blues” Damien once again hits the chords just right and allows you to hear and feel the blues as it pumps through your veins. “Soltice” brings in a flavor of slower tempo blues, and gets you in the blues mood, as the song really picks the tempo. The guitar work is phenomenal and intricate. Damien and his talent guide you through this amazing and super charged album. “Winter” another cut that allows you to feel the “Claptonish” flavor and Damien & his amazing abilities allow you to feel that signature throughout this album. The album is a purely instrumental album, and despite this I felt the major presence of solid and sound musicality throughout. “The Road Less Traveled” really projects a sound that is truly amazing and wonderful. It has the feelings with the true intricate fret work of one, Damien Bonazzoli. The next track on this highly detailed and truly defining album is called “Hardscrabble Road” and is a gentle but amazing sounds that take on a truly amazing feel and keep the emotional level moving along. “The Silver Cloud” has element of theatrical feel to it and keeps the journey moving along nicely as Damien shows of his perfection and timing to make a superb sounding blues song. “A Driving Rain” has gentle hints of flamenco buried within the borders of blues riffs and kept the speakers on their highest level all the way through. “Wander With Me” showcases Damiens detailed guitar work and true intimate side. The tempo slowed down and I felt the smoothness of the non abrasive vibes of Damiens gentle finger work on this truly amazing and wonderful song. The next track called “El Dorado” has complexed and driven fret work and Damien a “show off”, shows us how it’s done. ” A Long Drink at a Certain Bar” Steve’s Blues” Damien, since this song has Steve in it I had to give it special attention, and this song really reflects a true and superb guitar player Damien Bonazzoli showing off his stuff. Fine work and supreme guitar skills and real talent. “Whispers” a song that has the signature feel and the real emotion along with it and has that real blues presence and approach and kept my ears glued to my speakers to hear and feel that total true talent that Damien projects on throughout this intricate and yet powerful amazing work of art. “Far Away”, what can I say, it is a true and amazing witness to what Damien Bonazzoli is as a true blues guy and an amazing ability to convey this through his fancy and talented digits. I have been a blues fan for a long while, and now that I’ve heard this wonderful and superbly crafted project called “Endless Highway” by Damien Bonazzoli, I will remain a blues fan. The last song called “The Endless Highway” is a real good reason to stay a blues fan.
