The "Mr. Picasso" of Music!
Once again, Mr. Sara has produced another fine, quality musical work. Much can be said about Mr. Sara as a producer, director, writer, and musician but I think one word sums it up – consistency! His ability to produce consistent creative, entertaining, and quality music is just amazing! Time after time I am sure to expect nothing less than pure, creative, craftsmanship. His band has captivated audiences from all over the world. With their professionalism and longevity, this makes for a successful journey in producing quality, enjoyable music. Mr. Sara’s approach to the music has such a heartfelt passion and drive that commands his audience to partake of the same excitement. In other words, one could not sit in the presence of Mr. Sara and his band and not feel a part of the musical journey! Take for instance Island Blues, after a long hard day’s work, or a stressful day, Island Blues will take you on a journey where you can relax, let your mind soar, and drift with the cool ocean breezes on your own tropical island. What an end to a long hard day!
On another track, Long Hard Road, Mr. Sara connects with his audience by telling a story of one who experiences the “Long Hard Road” in life. It is bluesy, yet swinging, with a driving rhythmic force that mimics the “Long Hard Road” type of life. The constant smack on the snare drum (beats 2 and 4) seems to characterize that same constant “beating” that one sustains in life while trying to get back on their feet on the road to success. This he vocalizes as he tells the story. Interestingly, while the organ and background vocals add that “churchy” sermon feel in the background, Mr. Sara sums it up that faith and hope will help you get through. Do you hear the connection? A creative work indeed!
Mr. Sara has managed to put together another successful project. With his craftsmanship, creativity, hand-selected members, and professionalism, it all comes together like a beautiful work of art! I wouldn’t hesitate to call him the “Mr. Picasso” of music!
