'DEBUT CD FROM GUITARIST/SONG WRITER RICK LIPE NOW AVAILABLE- Unusual Way, the full-length debut from Upstate New York music scene veteran, Rick Lipe, is now available. The twelve new tracks are a savvy blend of Americana, rock. Blues, country and beyond. From the jangly Telecaster licks, rumbling barroom vocals, and clever lyrics of stellar blues rocker, "Can't Get it Right, " to the bossa nova rhythm and jazzy picking of the instrumental, "Night Breeze," Unusual Way showcases both Lipe's musician's ear and his seasoned skills as a player and writer. Unusual Way was co-produced by Lipe and Tony Perrino ( Buck Dharma, Dan Toler), and features Perrino on organ, piano, bass, cello, and percussion. A longtime guitar teacher, Lipe has been performing solo and as part of a duo, The Hot Wires, for many years in upstate New York. This album has something for every listener ie rock, blues, country, samba, jazz, and pop. The CD is filled with haunting melodies, fiery guitar solos, with both humerous and witty lyrics. This is a CD you will want to listen to again and again.
