As DJ Bill Nolan of WPKN said of Johnny "Here's a guitar player/vocalist, who can write his own songs and play with the fire of a Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan, a real deal "Italian Stallion," when it comes to riding the blue note into the stratosphere to entertain the heavens and the rest of us music fans here on Mother Earth!!"
Johnny recorded this record with his producer Paul Opalach, owner of Long Hill Recording Studios in Shelton, CT. Paul's credits include work with Debbie Davies, Matt Rae & Paul Gabriel amongst a host of others. Johnny was fortunate to have special guest harmonica great, Hook Herrera on tracks 3, 5, 9, & 10. Hook has played with the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule.
