Yes-Memorial day means -it’s almost summer!

What better way to spend a lazy summer day than listening to a new song by me, Aldo Buzzi!

That’s right, I have a new single coming out on the first day of summer called, “LAZY SUMMER”.

Remember when you where a kid those summer days that seemed to last forever? The sun shining on your face, the smell of flowers everywhere, a warm gentle breeze, remember those days and those feelings, sounds and smells of a lazy summer day.

Sit back, get a cool drink with your baby by your side, kick back and listen to

“LAZY SUMMER”!

Yup–took about 2 months to come, I purchased a Platform Output studio desk. I really needed the room as my old desk was too small and cluttered all the time. On my old desk, I did not have a slider to hold my keyboard and my roland drum machine and the MASCHINE Mikro. I was always having to stuff around when I wanted to use the keyboard (in which is basically all the time!). I’m still getting used to the set up and it will take me a few more week to set things up the way I will feel comfortable with and everything has it’s place.

There where many mainstays at Max’s Kansas City back in the early mid to late 70’s. When I was either working as a production hand or just hanging out at Max’s, One of my favorite’s was  “Mink DeVille”. Just a cool sharp rock n roll band with an ethnic punky flair that combined Spanish, Cajun and zydeco influences that was all new to me. Willy Deville, the leader of the band brought in this style that was unique as it was sharp and cutting edge for that time period. The band drew from many sources including Latin music, French creole ballads, New Orleans funk and Cajun accordion music. Just down right fun music to listen and dance too! Willy was born William Borsey in Stamford, Conn. and at a young age of 17 starting hanging out in Greenwich Village and down on the lower east side where he learned to play guitar and started performing. He was in several bands before he formed the Mink Deville band. I couldn’t even tell you and don’t even know the names of those bands Willy played in and what influenced him in those early stages. Willy was a sharp dresser and played the part to the “T”. From his dark slim tight fitting suits, thin tie and his pointed black dress shoe’s – he screamed Rock and Roll in a punkish sort of way.

The group recorded their first album “Cabretta” in 1977. Two of its tracks,  “Spanish Stroll”,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5LveBIjg3o – and O and Moon Martin’s, “Cadillac Walk” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mz3G5xaECs became minor hits but gave the band a springboard into a fairly modest model of fame in the New York music scene.

For the most part that was my experience with Willy & Mink Deville, although I thoroughly enjoyed the band and their front man “Willy Deville”.

Sadly, Willy DeVille died on August 9th of 2009, of pancreatic cancer. His adventurous forays into rhythm and blues, Cajun music and salsa made him one of the most original figures of the New York punk scene of the 1970s, He was 58 when he died.

Note: I found all these pictures from the internet – as I have none of my own from that time period, as who the hell carried a camera around with them back in the late 70’s and 80’s and of course cell phones did not exist! So thanks to all who took these pictures and full credit is deserved.

Multiplier

Y_{{t}}-(1+b)cY_{{t-1}}+bcY_{{t-2}}=(C_{{0}}+I_{{0}})
Multipliers can be calculated to analyze the effects

A multiplier value of 2x would therefore have the result of doubling effect.

 A multiplier is simply a factor that amplifies or increase the base value of something else

What Is the Multiplier Effect?

The multiplier effect refers to the proportional amount of increase, or decrease, in final results from an injection, or withdrawal.

Yes, this album is special to me as I kept playing through it and working on it as I started to have all these maladies in this fucking shitty and not over yet 2020. The year started off good but by the end of February it all started to fall apart. First I got Bells Palsy, for those that are not familiar – it’s a virus that settles in the nerve going to one side of your face and paralyzes that side of your face. This is something that if you didn’t know what is happening scares the crap out of you. Your involuntary motion like blinking your eye does not work-Yes -your eye stays open and you have to put drops in your eye and wear a pirate eye patch -Yo Ho! Also this is the second time in my life that I had this happen to me – so I knew what was happening. As research supposedly shows the re-occurrence rate for Bells Palsy is 8% – Lucky Fucking me! Then in mid March I started coughing and had shortness of breath. Went to the doctor and he said I have an upper respiratory infection. Thus a round of antibiotic’s and other med’s – Let me fill you in on something if you have not caught on already – Upper respiratory infection? – Uhh Da – Covid -19? Sounds familiar? This lasted a few months before I started feeling better. Oh did I forget to mention the 8mm kidney stone, and not just 1 kidney stone but 3 on the left kidney – An 8mm and 2 – 5mm – That was diagnosed in February and I was supposed to get them blasted in March–But due to the Covid-19 pandemic that got postponed. So fast forward to June to get them blasted and since it is considered surgery (non invasive) you need to get blood work and surgical clearance – key word here is blood work – Let’s now look back to my doctors visit in mid March, diagnosed me with Upper respiratory infection. My blood work came back with a positive results that I have the Covid – 19 antibodies – So 2 + 2 = I had Covid-19 in March! Now we are at the beginning of October – still not 100%, some days I’m good some day’s not so good, but through it all, I kept playing and produced an album that I really feel is some of my best work to date. The album is called, “Multiplier” it has 12 songs in total and is ready to go – stay tuned for the release date.

After many discussions, Idea’s and iterations, we have a name for my new album. The cover art work has been completed!

Taking a lead from Ed Sheeran’s cover art for his album called “Divide”. The concept of multiply (thus the multiplication icon “X”) came to me and to embellish it further I took it to “Multiplier” in which has many meanings. I wanted that multiplication icon “X” to be the main focus in what your eye goes to first and foremost.

Multiplier – a device for increasing by repetition the intensity of an electric current to a measurable level.

Multiplier increases and intensifies that electric musical current – pulsating the electrons throughout your body and brain, making you twitch, dance, think and illuminate your feelings as the music multiplies and engulfs your surroundings.

Look for Multiplier to be released some time in mid late November!
