ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
B3 Soul Introduction

I\'ve always wanted to start a groove project such as this. I\'ve been in many bands and have had many projects such as Niacin and The John Novello Band etc that simply burn! Don\'t get me wrong... I love burning or I wouldn\'t be doing it but a long time ago I was bitten by the \"pocket groove\" bug! Let me explain:

It all comes down for me to the expression \"It don\'t mean a thing if it ain\'t got that swing!\" Translation: Music in the end is all about the pocket - the groove, the rhythmic flow that captures our souls, gives them a spiritual shower and transports them out of the normal time zone of the physical universe and it\'s trials and tribulations to the universe of no time and problems - the thought or spirit universe where our souls come from - our Home Universe!

While I was growing up and a student of music which I\'ll always be, I noticed that certain bands and performers and/or certain songs increased my over all well being - my frequency of vibration. Initially I couldn\'t figure out why that was. Eventually I had the revelation that it was the almighty groove, the rhythm of life itself. I began taking notice of those bands and performers who did this and sought this with a passion - first for selfish reasons as it made me feel good but then... for more altruists reasons! At that moment, in hindsight, I finally became a musician! The word music is derived from the Greek mousike meaning any art presided over by the Muses - any of the nine sister goddesses in Greek mythology.

Yes true.... music by definition is \"the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity\" but I observed that the most basic response to music by most everybody was it\'s rhythmic element first and foremost! If that was missing, it\'s simply hard to go any further. True enough... great musical art consists of melody, harmony and rhythm performed with passion and competency but rhythm holds first place in my opinion as the basic expressive factor.

I noticed in fact that all great musicians, athletes, actors, public speakers etc had a fundamental rhythm which made for an inspirational and effortless performance. So over the years this was always something I sought after in others and to improve in my own writing and performances. The latest manifestation of this is \"B3 Soul\" humbly intended to make your life groove just a little bit more!
