Summer 2008 Jazz and Blues Notes
Matt O’Ree
BY DEBRA MULLER
Matt O’Ree has been cranking out blues-rock since he was an early teen.
With all the trappings of a genuine guitar hero, he plays with fire in his fingers
and blues in his soul. At age 13, he sunk his roots in the blues of Albert King,
Howlin’ Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. After establishing a good
foundation, at age 15, Matt played in various bands, honing his skills through
time and pure dedication. This led to Matt being an accomplished studio
musician only two years later.
Matt went on to study as a music major in college and began his own
teaching practice with guitar students. While working as an intern at a
recording studio, he began collaborating with various musicians trying to
bring a long-time dream to life. In 1997, Matt began writing and recording
material that evolved into his debut release, “88 Miles,” which was released
in 1998 and gained national reviews and airplay, pushing the band to a higher
level which included opening shows for national recording artists like BB
King, Buddy Guy, Leslie West and Mountain, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter,
Robin Trower, The Marshall Tucker Band, Kansas, The Outlaws, Gov’t Mule,
Dickie Betts, Gretchen Wilson, The Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies, Bernard
Allison, Chris Duarte, Indigenous, Robby Kreiger, Bill Perry, Walter Trout,
Labamba’s Big Band, and Smokin’ Joe Kubek.
The completion of his second release, “Chalk It Up,“ was the tipping point of
blending blues and rock together to form a unique sound of his own. It was
released in June 2001 and also received rave reviews with regional & national
press recognition and airplay.
In the March 2006 issue of Guitar World Magazine a review of Matt O’Ree’s
release “Shelf Life” which appears alongside numerous rock legends
including Audioslave, Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix, and The Deftones, proclaims
“New Jersey’s Matt O’Ree is quickly carving out a name for himself as 2006’s
new guitar hero.”
In April 2008, he released “Matt O’Ree Live’,” a CD/DVD package, which
features songs from all three Matt O’Ree previous releases, as well as some
new, previously unreleased, material. ‘Live’ was filmed at the Starland
Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ in July, 2007 and produced by six-time Emmy Award
winning producer, Mike Pomarico and his nine-time Emmy Award Winning
Camera Crew.
In 2006, O’Ree won the coveted annual Guitar Center sponsored,
‘Guitarmageddon King of the Blues’ crown, beating over 4,000 national competitors for the title. Over the past ten years of his career, O’Ree has toured all
over the US, recorded with Grammy Award winning producer Pete Anderson
of Little Dog Records and was picked to have his music featured in a new
Discovery Channel series, “A Biker’s Lifestyle — The Savage Roads,” that is
set to air Fall of 2008. He is now set to hit the road again in a tour this fall.

Jazz and Blues Notes Summer 2008 5
Groovin’ with
GREG
PICCOLO
‘My journey has no end, and that’s what keeps
it interesting,’ says former Roomful of Blues
tenor man.
By MIKE BARRIS
Greg Piccolo loves being in a groove. He just doesn’t want to get stuck in one.
The swinging tenor-sax man, blues shouter and guitarist who headlines the
2008 Red Bank Jazz & Blues Festival on Saturday, May 31, was a 24-year
mainstay with the renowned jump-blues band, Roomful of Blues. But in 1994
he left to pursue his own musical direction. “As much as I loved the band,
this other desire of writing my own songs just wouldn’t go away,” Piccolo
recalled. “As my songs were straying further away from the Roomful of
Blues sound, I was driving everybody crazy – the band, my family and
myself. I finally concluded that my own career and the direction of the band
had to be separated.”
Bidding farewell to Roomful, which a 19-year-old Piccolo and guitarist Duke
Robillard started up in 1970, was “the hardest decision I’ve ever made,” the
native of Westerly, R.I., recalled. The result was Greg Piccolo & Heavy
Juice, a quintet which blended blues, jazz, reggae and rock and featured a
number of Piccolo’s original compositions. The band took its name from the
title of Piccolo’s critically acclaimed 1990 solo album, “Heavy Juice.” In
addition to his tenor (and occasionally alto) sax work, which is strongly
jazz-oriented with an R&B tinge, the new group turned up the spotlight on
Piccolo the vocalist. “Part of the reason I left Roomful was that I wanted to
sing,” Piccolo recalled. “I like to sing, and I think it’s really part of who I am.”
The new setting also showcased Piccolo’s guitar chops more frequently,
capping off several years’ serious effort to develop a signature sound on the
instrument with which he’d only messed around as a teenager.
Piccolo and Heavy Juice toured for about five years and cut two albums for
the Fantasy label. But a relentless nationwide decline in venues ultimately
took its toll on the band, economically, he said. Piccolo quit touring early this
decade - just as his Emit Doog label (Emit Doog is “good time” spelled
backwards) released “Homage,” the sax man’s tribute to such tenor heroes
as Illinois Jacquet, Red Prysock, Lester Young, Ben Webster and Eddie
“Lockjaw” Davis. Today, session work keeps him busy. His resume has
included recording projects with brothers Jimmy and Stevie Ray Vaughan,
Big Joe Turner, Pat Benetar, Colin James and many others. He still can be
found working live New England dates with various Roomful of Blues alumni.
“My journey has no end and that’s what keeps it interesting for me,” Piccolo
said. “Knowing that my music has meaning to others helps to keep me
going. It’s a lot of fun but not always easy, and it’s nice to know that there are
others who truly care.”

RON
SUNSHINE
& HIS ORCHESTRA
By NICKY COPPOLA
How can one truly describe the music of Ron Sunshine & his
Orchestra? It can be done with two words: Impeccable taste.
After 18 years of full time touring and recording with his other
groups, one of New Yorks City’s premiere male vocalists has,
with meticulous attention to every detail, assembled his dream
orchestra. Ron & his Orchestra will feature the works of
Ellington, Basie, Sinatra, Ray Charles, as well as Sunshine’s
own compositions.
Singing in front of brass and reed players of the highest caliber
New York City has to offer (with their perfect intonation and a
masters degree in every chair) would be daunting to most singers,
but Sunshine’s joy and ease with the situation is evident from the
moment he hits the stage. Now, he would like to share this joy with
you! His music will fill the festival with warmth and will certainly
put a smile on your face. It will also get you dancing. When you
hear the richness of the horn section, combined with the
smoothness of the vocals, and the snarling of Ron’s blues
harmonica, you will be experiencing something unique, bluesy
and soulful. Also joining Ron will be sultry siren Sarah Tolar on
vocals, and musical director and alto saxophonist Matt Hong.
The band will include Jason Pharr on drums, Tom Pietrycha on
bass, Matt Ray on piano, Dan Block on tenor sax Carl Maraghi on
baritone sax, Wayne Goodman on trombone, and Brian Pareschi
on trumpet.
Singer, songwriter, harmonica master Ron Sunshine (Born in
Denver, Colorado, Columbia University graduate, long time resident
of NYC) has been performing all around the world with his band
since 1990, releasing five CDs along the way. As Grammy-winnning
producer, Aaron Levinson, put it “Ron Sunshine is one of the very
few cats out there who sings the blues in a way that does not
compromise the integrity of the source from which it comes. As he
is a serious student of the ‘old masters,’ his commitment to their
legacy remains sincere and undimmed.”
With his soulful blend of catchy original songs, jazz standards, and
blues/R&B classics, Ron and the band continue to win followers on
their travels. Ron and the band have been featured on CNN, BET,
NBC, Fox, BBC and other domestic and international television
outlets, as well as numerous nationally released compilation CDs,
books, films and radio. You probably hear Ron’s music on TV every
day, whether you realize it or not! +

The Gas House Gorillas
“This primo jump blues band has it all: an
amazing rhythm section, awesome sax
playing, fabulous guitar, a killer front-man,
and fantastic songs. And more than all
that, these guys have the ability to
crossover from jump blues to swing to
rock and back again, often within the
same track.” Michael Macomber - Retro
Music Review (Mar 26, 2008)
The Gas House Gorillas often bring the
show into the audience spurring fans to
sing, dance and get wild. Cutting up with
each other and the crowd, the Gorillas are
more than a great band; they are great
entertainers as well.

Summer 2008 Jazz and Blues Notes
James Dalton
& Arlan Feiles
The Mauricio de
Souza Quartet
Individually James Dalton and Arlan Feiles
had been exciting audiences around the
world before meeting each other in a rock
club in NJ. The two shared a love for all
things blues. James and Arlan combine a
healthy respect for the tradition for the
masters who came before them…with
emotional, heart-stopping, high-energy
shows reminiscent of Howlin’ Wolf and
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. Arlan’s use of
country-porch gospel piano complements
James’ wide-eyed soul abandonment. The
Dalton/Feiles Duo has been said to have a
‘wow factor’ rarely seen in today’s contemporary blues scene.
The Mauricio de Souza Quartet performs
a variety of jazz standards from Miles to
Metheny. The group concentrates on performing the most refined tunes from each
of the jazz eras. Born in Brasilia, Brazil,
Mauricio is a jazz drummer who easily
performs in both traditional jazz and
Brazilian jazz styles. He has studied with
master teacher Joe Morello for eight
years. Mauricio has been very active in
the NY/NJ metropolitan area, performing
at some of the finest jazz clubs, not only
as a side man but also as a bandleader.
Jazz Lobsters
Dubbed “the hottest big band on the
Jersey Shore,” featuring the timeless
music of Count Basie, Frank Sinatra,

Frank Fotusky
“Frank Fotusky’s handling of the country
blues is kinda like a burlap sack made
with silk instead of jute. It’s that old familiar weave, that old familiar shape. But
damn, it sure is smooth. Or to vary my
metaphor, the genuine article viewed
through a very clean pane of glass.” Peter James, Promoter/raconteur.
Gary Cavico &
Blue Stone Reunion
Gary Cavico started the band in 1985 and
played with bass player Jim “Hank”
Henry, a musician he had played with
since the 60’s. Gary’s good friend John

Pat Karwan
Karwan has been influenced by some of
America’s most talented artists. You
can hear this diverse mix in his original
compositions. “American Music” best
describes Pat Karwan. His collection of
songs showcases the pinnacle of what
one voice and one guitar can “flesh” out.
Playing with a thumb pick and three fingers, Pat’s arrangements sound like a
bassist and two guitars.
Sandy Mack
Sandy has been in the Jersey Shore
music scene for many years….or to put it
another way, he’s just back from his shortlived retirement as a Civil War veteran. If
his musical abilities do not warrant
applause, this wisecracking “entertainer”
is just as pleased to be acknowledged for
the comedic aspect of his show. However,
he does ask that the throwing of rotten
tomatoes be kept to a bare minimum.

BY KATI BEDDOW BROWER,
YOUTH PROJECT DIRECTOR
AND RESIDENT MENTOR,
AND EDUCATION COMMITTEE MEMBER.
The Jazz and Blues Youth Project is just
finishing its second full year. Everald
Williams - musical director and resident
mentor, Patti Wade – Coordinator and I
feel like proud parents. And like proud
parents, we hope for the best for each of
these young adults and their musical
future. We hope the participants, students
(ages 12-18) who come twice a month to a
“grassroots” program, will perpetuate the
powerful and expressive genres of Jazz
and Blues. We are proud of the new crop
of young members who joined us in the
Fall of 2007 and those who came to us in
the Winter of 2008. We are also grateful to
those veterans of last year’s program who
returned to contribute to our efforts.
A VERY BIG shout out must go to our
seniors (and most of the veterans of last
year!) who will be moving onto college in
the fall, but insist they will continue to
play this music that moves them so. Sam
Sherman, Lucas Sacks, Paul Vinci and
Matt Jurasek, we salute you! Your
participation and musicianship in the
Youth Project has been an asset to us,
and hopefully to you as well. The four of
you have always shown respect for the
music and been positive role models for
future members of the program and the
18
Summer 2008 Jazz and Blues Notes
Foundation. We all
have worked hand in
hand nurturing each
other as we move
into a bright future
for Jazz and Blues!
Our guest mentors
for the Youth Project
this year have all
been so informative,
delightful and ever so talented. Our
Gratitude goes out to: Bassist Chris
Plunkett, who informed the members that
if they don’t behave in a professional
manner, there is always someone else
waiting to take their job. Drummer Joe
Bontempo stressed “play as much as you
can.” Young vocalist Chelsea Palermo
gave insight on the “hard road” she is on
The JSJBF’s Education
Committee strives to
bring Jazz and Blues
presentations to our
community of young
and old alike,
everywhere and
anywhere, in schools or
any facility that wants
one of our programs.
The committee persists
in its endeavor to
spread the knowledge
of these two wonderful
American genres by
whatever means we can. This year, the
BackBeat Stage’s lineup brings their
“onstage” musical programs to the
audience. The performers have melded
together a fabulous mix of information and
super music! Young talent will abound this
Festival year and the joint will be jumping!
So, please don’t miss these fine
performers at the BackBeat Stage. +

Red Bank’s
‘After Hours Music’
Jam Sessions
BY KRYSTEN FERNANDEZ
The Red Bank Jazz and Blues Festival
is back in town showcasing more
exceptional acts to the anticipated 150,000
anxious fans lining the banks of the
Navesink River. While the festival will
celebrate its twenty-second anniversary
in May, it will only be the fourth year these
artists will be invited back out to the ‘After
Hours Music’ jam sessions hosted at the
legendary Walt Street Pub on Sat. night.
This year we will also be adding a Friday
night After Hours at the newly renovated
Downtown.
The concept of After Hours, originally
conceived by the Incinerators’ John
Fernandez (TheIncinerators.com), is
simple: to provide the visiting festival
performers a chance to get down and
dirty with local artists in an intimate club
setting, and at the same time, giving fans
an up-close and personal experience with
the bands they usually only get to see
from afar.
Those fortunate enough to attend the
event in past years were treated to
inspired performances and friendly duels
between musicians who grace our local
stages far too infrequently. A memorable
example was an amazing harmonica
“battle” between two of the possibly best
harmonica players on the planet today;
Jason Ricci (JasonRicci.com) and local
hero Dennis Gruenling (DennisGruenling.com).
They stole the show, throwing licks back
and forth at each other with every new
bluesy phrase. The joy in their faces
showed how both men were truly inspired
by each other’s creativity. The winner of
this battle of the titans was clearly the
audience.
Then there was a guest appearance by an
amazing blues band out of Canada known
as the “Blues Berry Jam.” They took the
stage and rocked the house with inspired
musicianship and great vocal performances
by Nancy Desmarais, accompanied by
searing licks of guitarist Eric Maher.
Let’s not forget the great vocal
collaboration by Jennifer Wright
(TerraplaneBlues.com), Roxy Perry
(RoxyPerry.com) and Scarlett Lee Moore
(ScarlettLeeMoore.com). They sang a
rousing version of ‘Mustang Sally’, with a
magical moment at the end when the
music stopped and out came an angelic
three-part harmony that brought the
crowd to its knees.
The After Hours Music jam session has
also brought other exceptional local
blues artists like Sonny Kenn
(www.sonnykennband.com), Chuck
Lambert (chucklambert.com) and Ronnie
Rausso (www.thetonemasters.com) to the
Walt Street stage.
So if you’re ready to join us for this year’s
after hours musical happenings, just make
sure you drink some coffee and bring your
dancing shoes ‘cause it’s going to be a
long fun night…
