“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.

THE LAST TIME I WROTE ON THIS MEGA SUPERSTAR AND PHENOMENAL DANCE SINGER WAS BACK IN 2015 FOR HER AMAZING AND CATCHY AND PUNCHFUL OF SONGS ON HER DEBUT EP “UNDEFEATED’ THE ARTIST WHOM I AM SPEAKING OF IS A YOUNG LADY NAMED BRITTANY LEO, AND HER EP CALLED UNDEFEATED WAS UNBELIEVABLE AND SUPERB DANCE FLOOR READY IN ALL DIRECTIONS. WITH THIS BEING SAID BRITTANY LEO RELEASES A BRAND NEW SINGLE, WRITTEN BY BRITTANY LEO, DYLAN BURROWES AND JEREMY DRAKEFORD WHO CO WROTE THE SONG NEED IT ON HER “UNDEFATED” EP. THE NEW SONG IS CALLED “ADORE’ AND BRITTANY RISES TO THE OCCASSION WITH HER CONSISTENT DANCE FLOOR SOUND AND THAT AMAZING BEAT BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH BRITTANY’S WONDERFUL AND STRONG VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS. BRITTANY IS A PERFECTIONIST WHEN IT COMES TO HER MUSIC, AS SHE WILL ATTEST FOR THAT, SINCE I HAVE BEEN BEGGING AND PLEADING WITH HER TO ALLOW ME TO WRITE HER NEXT REVIEW SINCE MY LAST REVIEW OF HER BACK IN 2015. TIME HAS PASSED BUT BRITTANY BRINGS IN THE INCREDIBLE SOUND AND THIS PARTICULAR SONG SOUNDS A LITTLE MORE MATURISH IN NATURE, BUT NONE THE LESS IS A STRONG CONTENDER OF A SONG AND REALLY HAS FEELINGS INVOLVED THROUGHOUT THIS AWESOME SONG. I AM ALWAYS AWAITING A GOOD SINGLE ARRIVING FROM BRITTANY LEO AND WITH THIS ONE SHE KEEPS THE SMILES ROLLING AND THE SPEAKERS CRANKED TO FULL LEVELS. THE SONG IS CONSISTENT WITH BRITTANY’S SUPERIOR DANCE AND ELECTRIFIED SOUND AND ANXIOUS TO HEAR MORE FROM THIS AMAZING YOUNG LADY THAT KEEPS THE MUSIC “LOUD” AND HAS A TREMENDOUS FUTURE WITH HER STYLE OF MUSIC. MY MANY THANKS TO BRITTANY FOR HER AMAZING FRIENDSHIP, AN HER KINDNESS AND HER AWESOME GIFT OF MUSIC TO MY EARS.

AS I HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL HUNDRED MUSIC REVIEWS, I AM TOTALLY CONVINCED THERE IS AMAZING AMOUNTS OF TALENT OUT THERE. WITH THIS BEING SAID, I’VE HAD THE REAL AND TRUE PLEASURE OF LISTENING TO AN GROUP NAMED EARL & THE AGITATORS FEATURING SCOTT HOLT AND AN EP CALLED EARL & THE AGITATORS. IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE NAME SCOTT HOLT HE MADE HIS DEBUT AS A GUITARIST FOR THE BUDDY GUY BAND AND ROGER EARL IS ONE TO BE RECOGNIZED AS THE ‘BRAINCHILD” OF THIS AMAZING AND WONDERFUL BAND, CALLED EARL AND THE AGITATORS,  ROGER IS THE DRUMMER FOR THE CLASSIC ROCK BAND FOGHAT AND WITH THIS A TRUE LEGENDARY SOUND EVOLVES. THE START OF THIS EP A SONG WRITTEN BY KRIS KRISTOFFERSON THE FAMED WRITER OF THE TOTALLY REMEMBERED SONG  “ME & BOBBY McGee THE SONG CALLED “SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN” AS THE LATE JOHNNY CASH COVERED IN HIS ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER. EARL & THE AGITATORS REALLY MAKE THE SONG COME ALIVE AND ALLOW YOUR EARS TO SLANT IN THEIR DIRECTION. AS THEY START TO SLANT THE NEXT SONG IS ALREADY PLAYING “WHERE’S THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, AND EARL & AGITATORS MAKE UP & GET THE KICK STARTED AND GEARS FULL BLAST ARRIVING WITH A TRULY AMAZING AND ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO GET A TRUE FEELING OF THE TOTAL TALENT INVOLVED IN THE TREMENDOUS AND AWESOME MUSIC PROJECT. THE RIFFS ARE EVER PRESENT THROUGHOUT THIS EP AND EARL & AGITATORS RATHER THAN ASK, “WHERE’S ROCK ‘N’ ROLL,  THEY SHOW YOU WITHIN THE CONFINES OF ONE HELL OF A SONG AND I LOVE IT. THE NEXT SONG REALLY BITES INTO THE CAKE AND SHOWS THE AMAZING ABILITIES OF THE BAND & WHO COULD ASK FOR A BETTER SOUND THAT EVOLVED FROM MY SPEAKERS. THE BLUES RIFFS ARE EVIDENT IN THIS SONG, THE SLIDE GUITAR OF BRYAN BASSETT AND THE SMOOTHNESS OF VOCALS & GUITAR OF SCOTT HOLT ON THE SONG CALLED “LOVE ISN’T KIND” IS SHEER MUSIC ARTISTRY. THE SOUND OF THE MUSICALITY IS SIMPLY PUT FREAKIN’ AMAZING AND TRUE TALENTS ARE ALL EXPOSED WITH EVERY MEMBER OF THE AGITATORS WHERE THE AGITATION ISN’T PRESENT, THE ONLY AGITATION THAT OCCURED TO ME WAS HOW COME I HAVEN’T HEARD OF THESE GUYS BEFORE? THE SOUND IS UNBELIEVABLY GREAT, AND HAS ME ASKING FOR MORE. THIS WHOLE EP IS JUST SIMPLY PUT A TEASER FOR MY MUSICAL TASTEBUDS, AND PLEADING FOR MORE. “HIGH HEEL SNEAKERS’ CONTINUE THE BLUES AND LOUD AND PROUD, EARL & THE AGITATORS SLAM THE SONG FOR A FULL DUNK, THREE POINTER IF YOU WILL. AFTER LISTENING TO THIS EP I AM TOTALLY CONVINCED OF HOW MUSIC TALENT IS OUT THERE, AND EARL & THE AGITITORS ARE ONE OF THEM THAT WILL BE ON TOP. WITHIN THEIR IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS THEY ARE A SOUND AND ONE TO BE NOTICED IN A MAJOR WAY, WITH SO MUCH REAL TALENT ON BOARD THIS BAND ROGER EARL, SCOTT HOLT, BRYAN BASSETT, RODNEY O’QUINN, TONY BULLARD & MARK PETROCELLI, AN TRULY AMAZING LINEUP AND SOME OF WONDER WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO OUR FAVORITE BANDS? WELL I MUST SAY THEY’RE STILL WITH US JUST GOTTA LOOK A LITTLE FURTHER AND DIG, AND YOU’LL FIND EM’ OUT THERE. AN AMAZING EP THAT IS WELL WORTH IT’S WEIGHT IN GOLD AND TRULY MAGICAL & TRULY LEGENDARY TALENT WITHIN EARL & THE AGITATORS IS WHERE BY HEARING THIS AMAZING SOUNDING EP, THAT THIS IS WHERE LEGENDS CAN BE HEARD. I KNOW NOW NOT TO EVER DOUBT WHERE LEGENDS GO, THEY REBOUND & ASK THE QUESTION “WHERE’S THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, IN MY OPINION IT’S FOUND ON THIS AMAZING AND TRULY STUPENDOUS EP FROM EARL & THE AGITATORS. MY MANY THANKS TO ELLIOT LINDA McGOUGH FOR SHARING HIS  COMMON BELIEF IN WHAT I BELIEVE “HEARING IS BELIEVING’ AND HIS WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP AND AMAZING BAND THAT MADE ME MORE OF A BELIEVER THAT THERE’S TRULY GREAT TALENT OUT THERE, ONE MUST LOOK AND YE SHALL FIND, AND I FOUND IT WITH EARL & THE AGITATORS.
