Toni Price live at The Continental Club “Somethin something South Congress.” Tuesday 1/21/14. This happens every Tuesday evening. I would say that there is no better way to begin your Tuesday night in Austin, TX than at this gig. I have been a regular for 14 years. The line up has changed over the years but it is always something special. Something really magical happens onstage here on a weekly basis. The new musicians with our ‘hippie hour’ diva are Jimmy Dreams, Marshall Hood and Robbie Kidd.

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.

[fa:p:id=2113797158,j=r,s=s,l=p]AUSTIN DAZE: Tell us about the new album.
TONI PRICE: I call all my music soul music. An artist is just expressing herself and there is not a why or a who or nothing-we are just trying to express ourselves. These are songs I want to sing and songs that I want to hear and hear them played right. And there are not a lot of those out there these days. Read the rest of this entry »
