Album Notes
What kind of music is on this CD? Well, it can really only be described as "Multi-Genred." There is no one genre of music represented; it spans many styles of music. It starts out with a Blues-Rock kicker called Bad Bad Woman which is a great song to dance to and it's been said to attract Belly Dancers! Next you'll hear a song inspired by the 1970's Disco Era but with a twist, entitled Ain't No 70's Disco. It has simple vocal harmonies as its backbone with a recurring synth melody, and is very danceable! Up next is a song with a Middle Eastern flair but incorporating a western sound, including a raunchy guitar and sax solo tradeoff. Cougalicious, will then take you to a dance club style so you can dance like everyone's watching, and you'll want to play it so loud that your neighbors will call the cops! Next up, a Latin Rhumba with a haunting guitar melody and an incredibly tasteful Soprano Sax solo by one and only Jim Perry. Ah, now comes a love song entitled She's There For Me. It's a vocal love song with strings and rather sentimental lyrics. Dim the lights, poor the wine and kiss her while this one is playing. After that is a Cha Cha with a cool acoustic guitar solo. It's very melodic and great to dance to. Then you'll hear a song entitled Distant Journey, with a Middle Eastern style and with the primary instruments being a Turkish Saz (or otherwise known as a Baglama), played by Tommy Marcinek & Tom DeMarco. It will take your mind to a distant land with a mesmerizing and driving pulse. Now comes a truly unique sounding Middle Eastern Belly Dance drum solo called Hot Coffee. It is a complex blend of different rhythms, accents and time signatures; an excellent song for Belly Dancers to create their choreographic masterpieces. Up next is a Latin instrumental entitled Coronado Tides. It has a pleasing patterned melody with a virtual trombone solo that's not only great for listening but for dancing as well. Finally, the title song (the title song last on the list you say?). Yes, Just The Beginning is last on the CD but the irony is that it's really only the beginning. Actually, Just The Beginning is the start of another song that will be on my next CD Thanks for listening. Tommy Marcinek

Review - Tommy Marcinek, CD "Just The Beginning"
New Jersey-based guitarist, Tommy Marcinek, composes a wide-array of progressive, fusion, and experimental rock, jazz, and world music songs. The music is diverse and multi-faceted with elements of classic jazz, dance, and contemporary rock throughout. Some of the songs employ vocals, while others remain instrumental. At any rate, Just The Beginning runs the gamut with eleven stellar songs.
. . . Tommy Marcinek’s latest foray into the world of jazz, dance, rock, and world begins with the opening track and the subsequent ten tracks. Each song contains various instruments, melodies, rhythms, and world influences that are bright, creative, and highly-textured. The mix of various rhythms, styles, and vocals creates an enchanting musical journey that does not disappoint. Anyone familiar with progressive dance, world music, jazz, and percussion music will find something enticing about Tommy’s latest release.
