The Boogie Kings - Disturbing The Peace
Recorded on Steinways with all the virtuousity, elegance, dynamics and skill of classical music, Disturbing The Peace retains all of the grit, raw energy, drive and excitement of American roots music. Jazz impresario and critic Todd Barkun was floored by Baldori and Migliazza, claiming among other things that they "swing harder than any 12 piece band I've ever worked with!" And that's what it sounds like on many of these cuts - a 12 piece band - even though it is only the two of them.
A stunning mastering job by the legendary Mark Stebbeds makes this CD a powerful statement for the first project by The Boogie Kings. More to follow.
