Cherry Sunday Orchestra -new cd by Toni Price

ME:    HEY,        TELL  ME    ABOUT  NEW CD  TITLE

TONI:  I  WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING WARM    AND  COOL,  SWEET   AND SATISFYING, LIKE  ICE        CREAM ON   A SUMMER SUNDAY  AFTERNOON.

So, I have been told I might be biased.

Yes, I have been to a few of her shows and yes she is a  friend, but biased no. If this disc sucked, I would tell ya. It is   pretty darn good. In general, I  am not a huge fan of   Toni’s CD’s.   I prefer the live shows much more. Glad I live in such a place where I can speak   that statement and actually follow it up  by going out  and seeing things live. The improvisation of any live  show never gets old.  The musicianship  on all her cd’s is stellar, alwaze has been and continues with this  new  release. Gathering all this talent requires magic  schedules and   a     huge  studio.  That is mainly why is why  her previous cd’s  don’t do it   for     me. With  a   few exceptions, most tracks  have felt  like studio  work. It’s  all too clean and too package perfect in my opinion. Radio  stations love that stuff   and       I  guess  most people   do too.    I      guess     if   I didn’t   live here,  I would     too. Gwil Owen is one  of the best songwriters I  have found,  he fits  Toni to a T.    All that  said, this    new CD has something. It feels live.     I put it in, close   my  eyes   and  am transported to a  packed, old school jazz  club. Dark and   smokey is  the   scene as the band belts out   the tunes. The joint starts to swing. The songs just flow into     each other. When    a disc   can  transport you,  you know    it’s   something good.  It is  good.  Many of my favorite players are on  this  recording. I still prefer the real  experience, but if I  am out of town or on   a road trip, this CD will be there.

This CD will be   available at the Continental Club, Ebay  and Waterloo Records shortly.Pick (UP) one or some up todaze.
