Ain't My Kinda Strange
Ain't My Kinda Strange All the lyrics and music for the CD were composed by myself, Griffanzo, but you know that the credit must go to all those people around me, from family, friends and musicians - everyone contributes. So they're all to blame! I must say that this project would never have happened without the support, encouragement and artistic imput of Frank Worrell who is simply being named the drummer on this CD - but as importantly, my co-producer! That said, Frank Worrell is the drummer on all songs. Don Gladstone is the bassist for all songs with the exception of Katrina, Katrina - that honor goes to Tyrone Hotchkiss. Of course Griffanzo is the pianist and vocalist. #1. Ain't My Kinda Strange is a political tongue in cheek swing tune with Ray Codrington, trumpet and introducing Jackie Thomas, backing vocals Girl #0024 is the rock quota for the CD accompanied by a crazy video (released very soon, it stars Maqui Ortiz as the belly dancing beauty and the lead part played by my friend, Brad Waycaster. More on the video when it releases) Rodney Marsh, sax Carter Minor, wicked outro vocal Fred Was Here is in memory of my friend Fred Cryer, 1947 - 2001. It has our usual trio but a string trio as well Jake Wenger, cello Matt Chicural, viola Rob Rempher, violin Katrina, Katrina well, as Brent Lambert said, there have been more songs inspired by this storm and America's failure to re-act than any other moment in our contemporary history Tyrone Hotchkiss, bass Taz Halloween, backing vocals Carter Minor, mo wickedness, harmonica Lampost is complete nonsense, so what's new? Ray Codrington, trumpet and introducing Jackie Thomas, backing vocals Gotta Get His Pants Back was inspired by Oscar Peterson on Billie Holidays recording of "What a Little Moonlight Can Do"! Ray Codrington, trumpet Stoplight a swing tune: cross pollenation of word association and nonsense Ray Codrington, trumpet Monsanto Is Changing Our Genes is just a wish to change the current tide of abuse by corporate power and lack of moral responsibility. Rodney Marsh, sax.
