Nick Longo - This is - CD Just Released
Nick Longo (sax and vocals) has just released his debut CD. It is entitled This Is and it is all original music written by him except for one cut written by his father John Pops" Longo. Nick did all the arranging and produced the CD himself.
He describes himself as high-energy jazz meets R&B. When you get the CD, pay close attention because it is very entertaining. There are a lot of little surprises that will pass you by when you just leisurely listen. It's mostly an instrumental CD, but there are vocal elements throughout. There are 12 songs all together with two of those being vocal tunes.
Scott Slade (host of Atlanta's Morning News on News/Talk 750 WSB from 5 - 8:30am) says,
I love the CD. Full of pleasant surprises. Nick and his skilled side men manage to bring the energy of their live performance into the polish of the studio. Hard bop-funk-progressive-fusion-acid jazz-blues you should own so you can say you heard them when."
