Detailed Description…
Veteran Saxophonist Dan Moretti has put together a smokin’
live set on

Williams-Acoustic and Electric Basses the band explodes in their deep groove and down-home energy.  The combined credits of the band represents a
who’s –who in the jazz, soul and blues world.
About the CD:
This
recording represents a tribute to the live spirit of the vibrant Soul-Jazz era
of the 60’s. Many of the grooves of that era are covered like the double
shuffle of “Shuffle Twist”, the flat-tire
of “Soul Shouting”, and the boogaloo of
“Ronnies Bonnies”, combined with new
arrangements like the funk version of “Moanin”
by Bobby Timmons, to the slow blues of “Low
Down”
by King Curtis, and a special tribute to Roland Kirk with a great
blues flute performance by Moretti on “Soul
Underneath”
.  These song selections
combined with the feel and soulful performances of these jazz and blues
veterans makes this Soul-Jazz session a down home and exciting listen.
