A CD Review of So Good by singer and guitarist Robi Zonca

CD Review - So Good by Robi Zonca – Tube Jam Records –

Robi Zonca’s latest release – So Good finds the singer and guitarist on fine form. Across the 11 tracks, nine originals and two covers, he and his band tackle a number of genres, from the blues, jazz, funk and pop, with the cover versions finding themselves in good company. Eric Clapton’s ‘Give me Strength’ features an emotive vocal performance, and it is drenched in reverb enhanced lap steel guitar, whilst Ray Charles’s ‘Don’t let the Sun catch you crying’ has Luther Kent’s impressively soulful vocals, and a fine BB King style guitar break from Zonca. As well as Robi Zonca’s performances, a strong brass section adds life to the blues/pop crossover tracks ‘So Good’ and ‘Feel like Dancing’, and the reprise of the later track features outstanding trumpet playing from Fabrizio Bosso. Tight rhythm guitar riffs, bass and drums all help to add to the mix, whilst strong backing and harmony vocals add to what is a classy, highly listenable and original album from a talented musician, singer and writer. It is well worth investigation for anyone looking for creditable new music.
