Joyful jazz guitar Lou Volpe – Before & After

Joyful jazz guitar Lou Volpe – BEFORE & AFTER:  My goodness, it’s been a while since I reviewed Lou’s joyful jazz guitar in issue # 115 on his “Hear and Now” album… I strongly recommend that you watch this video from a September, 2019 performance with Lou before moving on to my review…

…if you’d like to watch more great performances from Lou, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to the Lou Volpe YouTube channel… I did it right away.

As well as Lou’s highly accomplished jazz guitar work, you’ll hear bass by Stanley Banks, Pete Falbo and Motoki Mihara; drums from Buddy Williams; percussion by Gary Fritz, John Romagnoll and Richie Morales; as you listen to tunes like the groovin’ & funky “Coming My Way”, you’ll become an instant believer in Lou’s guitar magic!

If you’re yearning for something with a bit more mellow feel to it, you will totally dig Lou’s original tune, “Precious Jewel”, one of the most innovative jazz pieces I’ve heard (yet) in 2020… with it’s 4:44 length, and laid-back feel, DJ’s are going to be spinning this MASSIVELY.

Of the thirteen tantalizing tunes Lou offers up for this jazz adventure, it was easy to choose my personal favorite on my second run through the album… “Full Tilt” captures the essence of Lou’s jazz guitar mastery… I find myself hitting “replay” on this song often, and you will, too!

I give Lou and his cast of players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information about the album release as it becomes available on Lou’s website.           Rotcod Zzaj
