KEVIN BURGESS PROJECT
CD Review in the August Metronome by Douglas Sloan.
Put Yourself Out there
"Singer -songwriter-guitarist-saxophonist Kevin Burgess delivers a diverse recording of original songs on his new album PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE.This is not your typical 4 chord rock and roll drivel but a well planned CD that incorporates an amalgam of styles from funk to country folk with a dash of island and middle eastern tempos fueled by Burgess' tastefull saxophone work.A stable of fine musicians includes bassist Greg Loughman,drummer Mike Connors,Singer Lori Diamond,singer(and daughter) Sofia Burgess,Djembe bongo player(and daughter) Gabrielle Burgess,and Eric Kilburn handling the mandolin,weissenborn,and guitar chores as well as recording ,mixing and mastering the sessions.
With a flair for the big picture,Burgess spins a handfull of hits in "littlebird",the middle eastern flavored "stuck".the funky R&B flavoring of "screamin",the fusionesque "so Beautifull", and the gorgeously composed and arranged "mothers love"(sadly ,Burgess' mother passed away during the recording of this project) Contacts http://WWW.myspace.com/kevinburgessprojects
