Tas Cru – Riffin’ The Blue
Label: Subcat Records
Riffin’ The Blue is Tas Cru’s latest album, a collection of original songs that feature great riffs bouncing off of solid guitar hooks.
Produced by Tas Cru, the album features two dependable musical guests: Mike Zito and Bruce Katz. Tas Cru is prominent on every track, with lead vocals and guitar. Other artists included are: May Ann Casale (backing vocals), Bob Purdy (bass), Ron Keck (percussion), Andy Hearn (drums), Lenny Milano (drums), and Bill Barry (organ).
It’s an album packed with soul and designed to improve one’s state of mind. It achieves this instantly and, thankfully, never lets up. With his vocals, Tru creates a persona — a trustworthy emcee who guides the listener through song after song that are exciting riffs on the blues.
