Ex Colin James Wild Sax Man Scores Again!

If you're into the sound of early rock & roll with its honking saxes over a driving beat, this is a CD for you.
Burnaby, BC's wild sax man is back, on tenor & baritone and vocals with ten original songs that capture the sound of an era perfectly. These are not museum pieces, though, there's an energy that comes from loving and living the music. Wine Women & Song roars out of the starting block with Colin James on guitar and Eric Webster on piano. Robbie King, the late B3 legend stars on Swing That Thing but there are too many names here to mention everyone. Each track has a couple of backup vocalists and a different horn-heavy band lineup. If That Ain't Love is a particularly good rocker, followed by Lady, a lovely showcase for the tender ballad side of his sax style.
This is Ferreira's fourth solo CD to add to much studio work since his tenure with an early version of the Colin James Band. Find out more at his web site, www.RockandRollsaxophonist.com
