Song #9 – “Another” was written with this neat plugin called Dark Theory. It has some, (I think) Pink Floyd overtones to it, obviously “another” one of my earlier influences.

As promised every few days I will do a video to speak about each song on my new album release “This is My Life”. I will talk a bit about the idea’s for each song, when I wrote it, some back ground notes and story about each song. This first video is about the title track of the album appropriately named as the title “This is My Life”.

This will all lead up to the release of the album on June 15th. The album will be available on Spotify, Itunes, Youtube Music among many other download sites. It will also be available in CD on https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/aldobuzzi

As I stated in my Happy New Year post – working on my 3rd album in the last 3 years in which I hope to have finished and released some time in late spring. It will be a 12 song album with some great songs (well, at least I think it will have great songs, hope you will to). I think you will find on this album a more polished and distinct sound that has developed over the past few years. I have started to think about the art work for the cover and a name for the album. I also have a bunch of idea’s for a few video’s that will co-inside with the release of the album. Started to work on the story boards for the video’s as the video’s are a lot harder for me to produce then the music itself. The visual’s have to be right and it’s difficult to get really the production I want as I have limited resources at my disposal.

So stay up to date with the progression of my new album.                                               In the meantime – keep checking in and enjoy my release from last year.

Ok that’s a headline and a half.

What the hell do I, Aldo Buzzi have to do with Jackson Pollack a famous Abstract Expressionist? Well, I must say not that much except I love his work and his art studio farm house on the east end of Long Island. His home happens to be about a 45 minute drive from my home. One more thing that many of you might not know, No, I am not the illegitimate son, grandson or great grandson of a fling Jackson might have had. No, I am not a long lost relative from a distant cousin from his fathers mothers side (although that might have made a interesting story). There is something on the album, Aldo Buzzi, Test Drive “RAW” that came from Jackson Pollack.

On one of my road trips to the Jackson Pollack/Lee Krasner house many years ago before the tourist barrage took the place over and now you have a hard time getting in or getting a tour of the place. My wife and I was enjoying a Saturday out and was in his back barn studio where he did most of his work. Years ago when they were renovating the studio barn there was these game board masonite tiles that covered the wood floor. During the renovation they had removed these tiles and lo and behold the wood floor exposed an unlikely master piece of Pollack that was undiscovered before. The splatter of his paintings covered the floor, and as in his paintings the floor came to life with color and motion. Taken back by the floor, I took some pictures of different area’s of the floor, that to me was like getting my own Jackson Pollack at a reasonable price, Free!!!. When I was working on the art design for the back cover of my album, I took one of those pictures and made it the back cover, background art of the album. It fit perfectly and added a nice touch to the album art.

Below is the picture and the back cover it was made into.

Joezworld is the master mind behind this song collaboration. “Z” sent me the music pretty much complete and said to me, “put some lyric’s to it”. Literally the first time I heard the song the lyric’s pop into my head and I started singing to it. I immediately pushed the record button and bingo, I had just about all the lyric’s down and the basic phrasing. I spent the next 3 hours refining the flow and tone qualities of the lyric’s. The lyric’s I wrote was about missing someone and how I fucked up in a relationship. I  recorded, saved it and sent it back to “Z” to ask him if he liked it. It took a day or two and “Z” responded and it’s funny, he liked what I did and the lyric’s, BUT, he told me he had a totally different take on the theme of “Feels Like Forever”. “Z” said,”it’s a song about coming together rather than falling apart though arguably it’s more difficult to write lyrics about happiness than about sadness.” at that point we laid out some ground rules for long distant collaborations, tell me your thoughts on the song so we are on the same page! At the end “Z” commented, “I like that premise -go with it.” So here you go …..

In My Dreams is a bit autobiographical, written with my wife in mind. Certain lines like, “Now it’s just the two of us” is about our children that are now grown up with lives of their own and we only have each other. The chorus is my admiration for my wife and our love together, how I will be true and always love you. The dichotomy of the song is the guitar lead that I wanted Kimo to come up with in which it is similar to Chris Isaak’s, “Wicked Game” lead guitar riff, as I just loved that guitar riff. In wicked game Chris Isaak sings (I really wish I had his voice) just about the opposite of what I’m singing about. Although if you watched the video for “Wicked Game”, he’s making love through most of it with this beautiful babe, Helena Christensen. But he sings about her making him fall in love with her and how wicked that is by her to do that to him and ends with, Nobody loves no one. In My Dreams is a melodic love song with smooth flowing music ending with the subtle rumbling of waves slowly caressing the shoreline.
