Powerfully soulful inspiration Brian Cooney – Nothing Greater

Powerfully soulful inspiration Brian Cooney – NOTHING GREATER:  I was absolutely blown away when I reviewed the single (and title track) for this full album, “Nothing Greater“… Brian pulls in a whole host of players to support his vocals, keyboards, guitars and stunning lyrics.. Neil Cooney: Rhodes and electric guitar on “Shared Suffering”; Ed Nash: guitar on “I Am With You” and bgvs on “Freely Come” and “Nothing Greater”; Michael Strutton: Guitar on “I Am With You” and Richard “Hollywood” Thompson: Tenor Sax on “I Am With You”…

Songs like the 4:10 “I Am With You” display skill and talent that only a few artists (still) have these days… there’s a gentle and lilting feel to the guitars, and Richard’s sax solo just SHIMMERS with life… this song will be getting some HUGE airplay all across the globe!

You will be able to feel the hope that Brian’s stunning vocal passes on to you as he sings “The Only One“… I’m reminded of a friend of mine, Trevis Bick, as I listen to the inspiration Brian conveys through this powerful song.

Raw energy on the drum & percussion intro to “Let You In” will help you soar to the stratosphere; one thing I can guarantee – you’ll be UP and DANCIN’ as you listen to this (with your headphones on, of course)!

It was one of the shorter tunes that got my vote for personal favorite of the fifteen Brian offers up… his arrangement of “Amazing” is absolutely fantastic, and made my heart smile as I listened to it.

I give Brian and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information on the Bongo Boy Records page for the release.                                   Rotcod Zzaj
