Thom Rotella Band - Thom Rotella Band [LP]
Cat. no: DMP-46012LP
Release Date: 4th December 2020
“In the 80s and 90s Thom Rotella was one of the absolute cracks of the fusion guitar. Under the name Thom Rotella Band, he released his debut album featuring Wayne Pedzwater (bass), Mark Minchello (keyboards) and Clint deGanon (drums) on the renowned US label DMP.
What stands out beside the sound delicacies: No effect-demanding solo trips, the musicians work in the service of the pieces. Precise, experienced and yet they convey so much fun in playing that the fusion spark is ignited.
At HiFi fairs the title ‘Friends’ was very popular demonstrating Wayne Pedzwater’s gorgeous bass solo - concise, to the point, cracked. Perfect for testing the loudspeakers.
For more than a decade, the legendary album by the Thom Rotella Band was no longer available. Now TRB emerges from the sinking again - namely as a Double-LP.
