Tim Price Bloggin' For D'Addario Woodwinds- Frank Catalano- Jimmy Chamberlin - ’God’s Gonna Cut You Down’ :; A must to hear!

The newest featuring Frank Catalano and Jimmy Chamberlin, ’God’s Gonna Cut You Down’ released on April 7, 2015 on Ropeadope Records. A MUST TO HEAR. You need this!!!!! THIS RECORDING IS TOTALLY AMAZING....Frank Catalano is playing very open original ideas that are his own. That's one of the many things I always loved about his playing.This cd release is a showcase for the diversity of this great group of current jazz's most complimentary soloists. Frank's robust tone on the title track is countered by his sensitive interpretations of fresh lines played from the heart. Always a propulsive soloist,he explores his instrument's range fully developing consistently interesting solos. The musicians are completely comfortable with the material, and each performance is definitive, easily rewarding repeated listening. The music benefits from superior recording quality as well. For those who need it-It not only is a perfect introduction to Frank and Jimmy, but will reward and delight long time fans of these great musicians and their music. Highly recommend! What a great band as well; Frank Catalano - Tenor Sax- Jimmy Chamberlin - Drums- Demos Petropoulos - Hammond B3 Organ- Scott Hesse - Guitar- Eddie Roberts - Guitar (Track 1, 6)- Mike Dillon - Vibes (Track 5, 6) If you love Jazz or just love great musical compositions, this new CD by Frank and Jimmy Chamberlin will become an instant favorite.Beautiful playing all the way around. I'm very impressed by Jimmy's playing and how he plays and the depth of his artistry. This is a deep player- and sounds personal too.The other great thing about this CD is that it is a great value. Here is a whole lot of music and not a single cut will you want to skip over. Pop this in your player and be pleased. - Tim Price Bloggin' For D'Addario ;;;;

Tim Price Bloggin' For D'Addario Woodwinds- Ethics.

Overall this business functions through lies, power, cheat, ego-self-orientated, non-talented people (but also talented people, the one I call Artists). Many people will give and do everything to succeed in their field. That is to say, for music producers, music directors, promotion or marketing managers, music journalist, music agent, etc., it is a real challenge to work in this domain. What’s more, concurrence between one another is enormous and that is the reason why many people are mistreated, disrespectful, and sometimes inhuman. Why people have this behavior? What encourage them to do so? What are their limits? Do they care? Maybe more time shedding their art form might be in order, just saying. Working in the music industry is a way to put oneself forward. It is a question of pride and self-esteem. One wants to show that he or she is important and has values and beliefs that have to be seen. One needs recognition so he or she can succeed in what he or she is doing. On top of that, what motivate is.. MONEY! $$$$$$$$$ From what I have experienced and heard,people quickly realize that being ethically honest, respectful and professional is the key to success in the long-term. That is why one has to build up a strong reputation in order to achieve a successful career. One builds trust on someone on the way he or she behaves on a daily basis. And that is the thing to bear in mind. There are a huge number of characters in the music industry, some are ethically correct and even push you forward but some do the opposite by being self-fish, disrespectful and will do everything to kick you out. If you show a positive behavior and treat people fairly that is definitely the right path to success. Think about it- - See you next week- Tim Price
