Fresh from the Studio 'BOG Style' is out. All of the tracking was done during New Orleans Jazz Fest 04' at Piety St. Studios. The album features the work of bandleader/guitarist/singer/songwriter Brandon Tarricone's true gift. With core members Jon Massing on drums, Stew McKinsey on bass, Sam Kininger on Alto sax and Geoff Vidal on Tenor sax. The album also boasts the addition of new member Jeff Watkins from the James Brown Band who produced the album and plays his heart out on 3 tunes. Guests on the album include Brian Jordan (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe), Ivan Neville (Neville Brothers), Marco Benevento (the duo), Henley Douglas Jr.. (Boston Horns), Steve Bernstein (Sex Mob), Uganda Roberts (Dr. John), Christina Machado, and Mike Pellera. The album is a true work of funky art. The grooves are super deep, the melodies beautifully melodic and sing-able, and the raw energy huge, to the point that you feel like you could be listening to a liver performance. A new aspect of the Brotherhood of Groove on this album is great vocals, not found on the past albums. The album also includes the best of the New Orleans funk world and the East Coast groove world as players from both ends of the country come together during the Jazz Fest experience. An amazing aspect of the album is that all of the guests sound like they have been playing together for years. If you are a fan of the funk, jazz, fusion sound this is an album for you.
