Of this new CD, MICK FLEETWOOD has been quoted as saying, "A total pleasure... absolutely incredible, impeccable, and soulful. Rick nailed some serious stuff here. I love this album!"
"BAND BOX BOOGIE" is the latest release from former Fleetwood Mac member and W.C. Handy Award winning artist, Rick Vito. Rick has also worked with such classic blues and rock artists as John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and Bob Seger (that's him playing slide guitar on the "Like A Rock" TV Chevy truck commercial), and has made a name for himself as a guitarist of rare quality.
This CD blends Rick's unique brand of tasty guitar flash on material that incorporates elements of jump blues, cool swing and sensual slide guitar-driven rock and roll.
Backed by a pumping rhythm section that features the sax work of Jim Hoke, acoustic bassist Glen Worf, and drummer Ian Wallace (among others), Rick makes an impressive vocal delivery on tunes such as "Where Did You Go, Bettie Page?," "Last Chance to Mambo," and "Little Sheba," and tears up the frets on "Blues Town," and the fiery swing instrumental title track, "Band Box Boogie."
This is a great guitar-lovers CD, and will also be appreciated by those who appreciate their bluesy rock & roll with a jump and jive feel to it. "BAND BOX BOOGIE" received a five star pick from Guitar Techniques magazine ("...an album that took our breath away from track one!"), and will soon receive featured reviews in both Guitar Player, and Vintage Guitar magazines.
We're betting that you'll love this one!
