Figure we give it one last shot, or should we say “WAVE” while the weather is still hot and the water is even hotter!
Surfing was a song that was written in collaboration from my first band, The Lampshades. I came up with the bass riff and the band joined in and contributed to make the basics of the song. I wrote the lyrics and sung the song. This version still has the basic’s and lyrics intact, although it was re-imagined with some new twists to the song.

My New release, “Aldo Buzzi -Eclectic Collaborations” has gotten some good Radio airplay and is getting some notice oversea’s in countries like Japan, Israel, Australia, UK, Philippines and Taiwan are leading the way with many plays and downloads. Here in North America, the United States is leading the way and I would personally like to thank everyone in the states for listening and downloading my music with Canada and Mexico right behind the US with some great play.

Da da Dee Da is a whimsical little number that the rhythm and vocals just keep laying over one and another. It started by me just playing an acoustic guitar riff over and over. As it progressed I tried adding lyrics but all I kept coming up with is DA da Dee Da in which mimicked the guitar riff. So I took the notes and added a horn section and layered that in the back ground. A sax solo fit in very melodically with that haunting like echo on it. I just kept laying vocals in all ranges and at one point I called my wife in and had her lay down a few vocal laying tracks. In fact the last vocal Da da Dee da you hear as all the other vocals fade out is my wife’s vocal. One thing about this song is that when you hear it once Da da Dee Da will stick in your head for the rest of the day.

As many of the songs on Eclectic Collaborations were written and performed by both Kimo and I, these song writing collaborations brought out the best in him and I. Kimo added many instrumental touches & textures to songs that I wrote, that absolutely gave some new dimensions to my songs that I really enjoyed. We became, over the last 8 months close when working together on this album. We would play off of each others idea’s and develop them into cohesive flowing songs. I would say adding the lyric’s was the most fun as we would come up with a name for the song and then just run with the lyric’s. Take the song “Hanky Panky” for instance, as we were writing this song Kimo said to me, ” it’s sounds like Hanky Panky”. The next night I was alone listening to the playback and the words for Hanky Panky just started to flow. The New York vibe and the feel of the city and looking to ,”Get me some” played in my mind. The next session I said to Kimo, “your voice is perfect for this song”, and I stuck a mic in front of his face and gave him the lyric’s. The first take was great, although a few of the lines didn’t mesh exactly as we wanted. A few tweaks here and there and Kimo’s gravely voice was perfect -Up on 96th Street, Good God!

The release of my new album (CD) has been a labor to get bloggers to pick it up, review and help an indie artist out. It’s sure seems like most of the bloggers are more interested in charging some sort of fee to promote new music instead of sincerely wanting to get new music out to the masses and help many long laboring musicians and artists get exposure. I sincerely question their motives of why are you doing a blog in the first place? Being an older musician that has been around for a while and has seen a tremendous amount of really talented musicians and artists try to get exposure and in many cases NOT to seek fame and fortune, but to just share the pure enjoyment of people appreciating their talents. Bloggers are you interested in being a part of honestly reviewing and getting an indie artist exposure or are you out to make money off of them (note in more cases then not that artist has little money to spare if any). Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand some bloggers make a living off of blogging, although I still challenge them to look inside themselves and ask why they started blogging to begin with. I’ll bet most bloggers started with a passion to write some interesting article or review and expose some new (or old) artist or musician or subject manner that at one time or another they were passionate about.
So to that end – This a a Blogger challenge –
Bloggers, ask yourself? Were did you start from and what are you given back to your passion? Is it worth every once in a while to pay it forward and give an artist a plug – Just because you feel that they are worthy in your eyes to get some exposure.
We need all our friends, family, next of kin, your next door neighbor, the guy panhandling on the street, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your kids,-SHIT we need everyone to help make this a success story and share the love and the music.
