Album Notes
John Palermo has written songs for Graham Nash (Atlantic Records), George Lamond (CBS/Sony), Desiree Coleman (Motown), Eyra Gale (24/7), etc. A recording engineer as well, John has worked with The Rolling Stones, Hall & Oates, Billy Joel, Joni Mitchell, Deborah Harry, AC/DC, The Clash and numerous other major artists.

This is his solo acoustic fingerstyle guitar CD, featuring a variety of music. The CD leads off with one of his favorite songs, Moby Grape's "8:05", which he beautifully arranged. The rest of the CD features country blues, Celtic tunes and one of John's originals. The hidden track is a moving rendition of "My Funny Valentine".

John lives in semi-rural Randolph, New Jersey. The title of the CD, Music from Dismal Brook, comes from the body of water that runs behind his home. This is where he worked out the music on this CD.

The CD is digitally recorded to sound great on all systems.

I love the CD and play it all the time at work. I work at a Middle school as a Health Tech taking care of sick students. The CD is great for keeping them calm until their parents pick them up. Thanks.

A must have in anyone's collection
Wow, where do I start?

It's just so rare to find a CD that you don't tire of after several listenings. Music from Dismal Brook is one of those rarities. I hear something new each time I listen. John Palermo's playing is like water. Moby Grape's "8:05" shows this fluidity and his ability to emote through his instrument. The country blues tunes are strong and technical feats without sacrificing feeling. Chet Atkins would be proud to hear his songs performed with such reverence. I particulary enjoyed the Celtic tunes, which took me on an unexpected journey. John's own "Looking Over Blue Ridge" seems to be a tribute to Atkins as it reflects his style. The hidden track, "My Funny Valentine" illustrates what an expressive instrument the guitar is in the right hands.

This CD is a must have in anyone's collection.
