Album Notes
With Comfort is so Rare Anthony Robustelli creates an intelligent amalgamation of hearty musical genres which include soul, R&B, rock, funk and hip hop -- all deftly perched atop a strong foundation of jazz. While musical influences such as Steely Dan and Earth, Wind and Fire are subtly apparent throughout, the instrumentation, arrangement and complexity of this record go far beyond a punchy horn section and funky bass line.

With this effort Anthony Robustelli succeeds where contemporaries such as Jamiroquai and D'Angelo fall short. Comfort is so Rare is an extraordinary blend of head-bobbing, soulful tunes and thought provoking, oftentimes biting, lyrics that paint shades of Elvis Costello. From the smooth, melodic flow of "After This Night" to the driving bass and swift movement of "Queen of the Screen" to the deep house groove of "Step Inside" Comfort is so Rare is exceptional indeed.

Great musicianship, interesting idea using samples, keys and horns
Great Cd that can be enjoyed from beginning to end; no need to skip around. I especially like the mixing of modern, house-type samples and horn and keyboard instrumentation. Beatles meets Steely Dan meets Elvis Costello - good stuff!


Jazzy, sort of
I didn't think I would, but I really enjoyed this CD. The song "Step Inside" is like a club tune mixed with jazz - so cool. The long solos and samples really make it stand out from almost everything else I've been hearing lately. While I'll make due with the CD; I can't help but wish for a live show.

great songs, unique stye, excellent musicianship
anthony robustelli is a truly unique and original artist. comfort is so rare brings together all of his talents as a lyricist, singer, songwriter, producer, and keyboardist. his use of vintage keyboard sounds combined with modern drum loops yields a truly original and fresh sound. great cd! listen to it straight through...

Jeff Rose

This CD is one of my favorites. Everybody I know loves it!
It's too bad more CD's don't sound like this one. Clean and classic. Yet, powerful and unique. If you like great music and skilled musicians, this CD is a must for the collection.

Excellent, retro Fender Rhodes sound, dark lyrics and great story tellling
I like this one. It reminds me of '70s funk bands like Rufus, but the lyrics tell unusual, dark tales similar to Elvis Costello. A great story teller and if this record is any indication, an excellent musician. My only complaint would be that some of the tracks could use a little less production and more of a raw feel. But by and large - this one's a good bet.
