My good friend and sporadic teacher Oz Noy, has a new album slated for release November 15, 2011. It is to be called the "Twisted Blues" - that is precisely what it is! The 'blues' as seen from the land of OZ - which can truly be a funny funny place! His takes on the genre are deeply respectful and well - twisted! He is such a cool person and player. I implore you all to grab this album when it hits. It will be full of killer performances just like this one.
From the Oz-man's site:
The album was recorded in New York and Austin in November and December of 2010.
In New York, Oz worked with Anton Fig and Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Will Lee on bass, Jerry Z. and John Medeski on organ, Ralph McDonald on percussion, and Allen Toussaint on piano. In Austin, Chris Layton played drums, Roscoe Beck played bass, Reese Wynans played organ, and Eric Johnson joined in on guitar.
How can THAT be bad!
