Crazy Cool

by Rick Vito

Stylistically speaking, “CRAZY COOL,” Rick’s third CD for the Hypertension Music label, is a perfect follow-up to his earlier work. Continuing in the cool bluesy vein he favors so well, Rick offers here yet another great serving of tasteful slide guitar dominated “rhythm rock.” Included are solid treatments of John Lee Hooker’s “MR. LUCKY” (to whom Rick offers a cd tribute), B.B. King’s “GOING HOME,” and a host of inspired Vito originals like the rocking “MONEY & LOVE,” gospely “LOVE IS DANGEROUS,” and the rockabilly title track, “CRAZY COOLl.” Produced by Rick, “CRAZY COOL” features Ian Wallace on drums, Elmo Washington on bass, and Mark T. Jordan on keyboards as well as appearances by Bob Glaub, Gary Mallaber, and super doo-woppers, the Metropolitans. This one is sure to please!
