Mike Di Lorenzo Revives '70's Funk On New CD Release Entitled "Bring It Back"
Veteran Keyboardist Who Has Performed With Musical Icons Like Bo Diddley And Whitney Houston Has Just Released An Utterly Irresistible Throwback To The Urban Grooves Of The Early '70's.
- (1888PressRelease) August 18, 2011 - Modern -Retro - and Funky are 3 words that can best describe this new recording venture. A soulful, fresh and funky ride through 13 sparkling sides, bringing back as the title suggests, a mix of sophisticated soul-jazz productions recalling everything from James Brown-fueled funk to Marvin Gaye-ish soul to George Duke-styled funky jazz.
Mr. Di Lorenzo's sophomore release (following up on 2005's "Urbanized") combines nine stellar original instrumentals with four classic vocal covers from the Crusaders, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners and yes, the Fred Astaire songbooks. Retro and funky old school sounds with a modern twist.
One listen to Fred Astaire's old standard "One For My Baby" and you will be hooked as this is destined to transform into a new classic of today.
"Can't Hide Love", first single gaining radio adds.
