He also recently preformed in Singapore.  “I love to play Malaysia because it lets me reach new audiences I couldn’t in New York” commented Wyatt, he also seems to want to continue playing there in the future. “After a standing ovation I had realized Malaysia has impacted my music already”

Steve Langone forms a drummer’s trio

Breathe 3/3

D. Oscar Gomez- Drummer Steve Langone forms a trio with Dave Zinno (b) and Kevin Harris (p). They came together in Boston getting educated, teaching and performing. While this is Steve’s trio, he takes an understated role with few if any solos. He does a good job of integrating the team through nine selections. Each of the musicians contributes an original with Zinno giving two of his compositions. Breathe is a relaxing session that is mostly midtempo and ballads that serves as good background listening. Image result for steve langone breathe

Veteren guitarist Reggie Young Steps Into the forefront

Forever young 3/3
D. Oscar Groomes- Veteran guitarist Reggie Young has spent most of his life in supporting roles to stars like Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and Elvis Presley. On Forever Young he steps into the forefront as a leader performing seven classics with a decidedly contemporary, pop vibe. There’s a smoky blues groove on “Memphis Grease” and a laid back relaxed feel on “It’s About Time” and “Exit 209”. The latter two illustrate the dominant theme on a late but respectable debut.Image result for reggie young forever young
