An artist of great renown in these parts (and beyond), Jeff Cosco celebrates the release of his new CD, and first proper solo effort, Something. While Cosco has strutted his vocal prowess with bands like Cheater, The Shakes, Red Heart, Times Square, Long Live Rock Show and more through the years, this highly-anticipated CD has been in the works for a while and will certainly please longtime fans.
Showcasing his singing range within a varied stew of rock 'n' roll, Cosco especially grabs the listener on tracks like the bluesy, Black Crowes-styled, "Cool Water," the inspirational, "I Believe," where he conjures the spirit of Journey's Steve Perry in his vocals, and on "Vivid Blue" and "When That Train Comes," where Cosco creates a couple perfect pop songs, all melodic and catchy for your pleasure! The sole cover, of Elton John's "Madman Across the Water," is performed in excellent fashion, with Cosco making it his own, as he often does with any cover he performs. Check out one of Rochester's most beloved artists!
