Captivating guitar noir Mark Doyle – WATCHING THE DETECTIVES/GUITAR NOIR III: What an absolutely captivating guitar noir album… all the way from Nelson Riddle to Frank Zappa compositions are featured here… the best way to get familiar with Mark’s genius is to WATCH it, of course – in this promo for the release:
…if you’re at all interested in “different”, you will be SURE to SUBSCRIBE to Mark’s stunning YouTube channel, so you can catch all his fantastic performances.
The players on this release are total talent, and will absolutely WOW your ears… in addition to Mark’s splendid guitar, keyboards, bass and drum programming, you’ll also hear Josh Dekaney – drums and percussion; Ally Brown, Shelby Dems, Jonathan Hwang, Joe Davoli – violins and Kate LaVerne – cello… as you listen to the walloping impact of pieces like the 3:32 “Man From U.N.C.L.E.“, you’ll hear their raw & unadulterated POWER, people… the organ absolutely ROCKS on this song!
The whole black & white detective scene is captured to perfection on songs like “Noir Alley“… the bass walk gives you a real feel of dark alley intrigue; you’ll find yourself hitting the REPLAY button on this tune often!
My personal affinity for guitar-meister Frank Zappa made it easy to pick my personal favorite of the ten tracks Mark has offered up for your aural adventure… “America Drinks and Goes Home” is arranged & played in a totally different zone than FZ’s original rendition, and it’s among the most powerful performances of the song I’ve ever heard… just SUPERB!
I give Mark & all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this excellent musical journey. Get more information about him on Mark’s website. Rotcod Zzaj
