Gino Vanelli's "Brother To Brother"

Postby Mike Childree » Wed Feb 08, 2012 6:32 am

I have been addicted to this album since it was new. To this day the musicianship just kills me, especially the drumming by Mark Craney (RIP) and the bassifying of Leon Gaer and Jimmy Haslip. I must have listened to it a thousand times and I still take away something new every time. Simply a landmark work.

Or am I just easily impressed? What say you?

Dave Marotta played bass with him back then too.

Gotta agree....probably one of my "not rock" early influences. The Powerful People record was like my first hit of cocaine or herb. Never forget it.

I love that album, knocked me out when it came out. His brother still shows up on Haslips solo albums.
