Format: Audio CD
Greg Piccolo's repertoire is fascinating, like a never ending bag of tricks. For this CD he pulls out 12 amazing covers of his idols from yesteryear.
Now in his early 50s, Greg Piccolo has lived a 35 year working career of playing blues oriented sax, much of it with the 10 piece Roomful of Blues and the last ten years on his own with either a quintet or a trio. This CD features a quartet.
He sailed though high school doing covers of the late 60s rock at Misquamicut State Beach in Rhode Island where is band nailed the house gig during the summer. In the winter he would play more blues oriented music at the "Como" (Community Center). He later left college to join Roomful of Blues in 1971 where he played until going solo in 1994. He then did two CDs on Fantasy they called Acid Blues, but he wanted to release the magic of this CD, "Homage", independently. It was interesting that Greg chose to do this material since he had more than enough original songs (Pic music) to fill 2 CDs and would sometimes even say he was going to do a country recording. Perhaps it's because of his roots, perhaps to satisfy the critics of his Acid Blues, but probably it's just because he always plays what he wants, whatever it is.
It's nice that he includes Red Prysock's "Handclappin" because Greg has always had the driving energy exemplified in this cut. On the other end of the scale, he slows it down as much as he ever has with a song he still does in his live performances, a heart wrenching cover of Ben Webster's rendition of "Over The Rainbow". Bill Doggett's easy swing is caught by Piccolo in "Ram-Bunk-Shus" (an easy swing reminescent of Piccolo's 1982 original tune "Yes Indeed!").

This CD is a must have for all lovers of tradtional jazz instrumental music. Piccolo is a one of the best sax players I have ever heard although relatively unknown at this time I'm sure will hear much more of him in the future.
