The 4th song on “This is My Life” inspired by the Paul McCartney album “Egypt Station”. There is one song on Paul’s album that I really liked that was, I guess the most commercial successful song on that album, “Come On to Me”. I enjoyed the back and fourth melody’s that inspired me to right this song–Laughingly I first called the song Come On Paul McCartney – Well obviously I changed the name of the song to Come On Come On.

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.

The Complete album “Eclectic Collaborations”

I sure did pull this one out of my ass!!! Some where in between and for the life of me I don’t remember the time line on this one. Ken, Myself and a drummer named Tim started a trio to see if we could play the local bar circuit to earn some pocket change. I was rummaging through my cassette tapes the other day and low and behold, I found this musty old practice recording tape of this band (I’m pretty sure Gary joined in at one point as there is keyboards on this recording). I don’t even think we had a name for the band but we did have quite an eclectic repertoire of songs that we played.  The Stones, “Brown Sugar”, David Bowie’s, “Suffragette city”, Jimi Hendrix, “Fire” were just a few songs in which we were doing at the time. If my memory serves me right, we never did play out any where either, but Ken and I brought these songs to the Lampshades and when the Lampshades first started playing the bar circuit on Long Island, New York – we were playing a lot of cover music and only a few originals. Reality was to play the bar circuit on Long Island you really had no choice but to play covers to get your foot in the door just to get a gig and earn a little cash, albeit not much after the bar tab was rung up.

Here is “The Rolling Stones” and our unnamed band version of Brown Sugar

It’s been a good year for me and my music. I have explored new genre’s and bought some new equipment to further my experimental voyages into the realm of  music and sound. And frankly I don’t give a fuck if the music takes me into a world of what people think it should be as this is my outlet and one of my art forms that makes my life fulfilled.

It is so interesting from when I first started playing back in the 70’s to where I am today. Everything is at my fingertips and I don’t need to have other musicians to play all the parts. Although, nothing can replace that feeling of playing in a band with good musicians with you and being on stage, be it playing for a small audience or  large audience it’s is still so exhilarating and fun.

I just recently obtained the Maschine Mirko MK3. What a cool piece of equipment! I immediately started playing around with it and produced a nice progressive uplifting instrumental. ( Take a listen – click on link below)

Whimsy 2

Working on my 3rd album in the last 2 years in which I hope to have finished some time in late spring. As said before, at my age and time in my life it’s all about the music in me and sharing with whom ever wants to listen. It’s always strange that as life moves on your priorities change as mortality faces you (not that i’m going to die hopefully anytime soon – LOL), but you don’t have that young man’s fancy of acquiring fame anymore, if it happens that’s a bonus now. You just want to leave a mark somewhere that you contributed to the progression of art, beauty and music. It’s like some old blue’s player that played back in the day and some where at some time some one heard a recording of a song or of him playing and said -wow that was fantastic and appreciated the talent.

Keep checking on Aldo Buzzi as we keep progressing

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!

May you be happy and healthy and a little more wiser 

 “In My Dreams”

In My Dreams is the #10 on the Eclectic Collaborations Album. The video 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 My Dreams is a melodic love song with smooth flowing music ending with the subtle rumbling of neon waves.

What a wild time in my life working and playing at the Mudd Club! My partner Bill and I through our sound system company Centour Sound became the production managers of the club after John Kessler was done doing his stint as the production manager. Just before John left we had the extreme pleasure of John, Bill and I working together to work with Frank Zappa who played the Mudd Club! We brought in extra equipment and a bigger mixing console to accommodate his band. Terry Bozzio was on the drums at that time. That was a thrill to work with a master in such a small venue. There is a sketchy bootleg, sounds to me like someone had a cassette tape recorder and taped it in the midst of the crowd. The recording is on you tube, I included the link – I remember that Frank had his own sound person do a recording right from the board, so that must be available somewhere in some Zappa archive.

We worked with a lot of different bands & artists from Samba to Punk, experimental to down right BAD–fashion shows and you name it everything in between. DJ’s Anita Sarko (who has passed away in 2015) and DJ David Azarch made the club hum, jump and jive into the wee hours of the morning. In which we usually ended up going to an after hours club and came out squinting as the sun was fully out and blaring while we were going home and watching the rest of the world just going to work.  I will add more Mudd Club memories in my blog as time goes by – Keith Herring, Johnny Thunders, Question Mark and the Mysterians, Sam and Dave, John Belushi, wow and so many – so stay tuned in! –
