From the very first chord, Deanna Bogart's The Great Unknown is an energetic, vivacious treat, with Bogart's own piano and gut-deep voice the driving forces behind "Sittin' on a Mountain." This energy continues all the way through the disc, from "Love Funk" to "Won't Be Long" to "Life of the Party." "Wrong Side of Love," while mid-tempo, constantly pushes at the beat. A more traditional, behind-the-beat approach is featured on "Lovin' Me," which also highlights Bogart's rich singing. Her attitude (of which there's plenty on this CD) might best be summed up by track 6: "OK," she says, "I'll play the blues." --Genevieve Williams

Discovering the Great Unknown!

"Whether you are "sittin'on a mountain," in a "love funk," or wake up on the "wrong side of love" you will find yourself "opening the door" for Deanna Bogart's latest CD--"THE GREAT UNKNOWN." Walking down Duval street in Key West one Friday night after midnight I heard this "goood" music and had to discover what it was. I happened upon Deanna Bogart and untimately, the Great Unknown. If you drink from her cup, you will never be the same again. Her music overflows with richness, with spirit, with life. I like jazz. I like the piano of Jerry Lee Lewis. Deanna Bogart has the energy of Jerry Lee Lewis, but with a smoothness and style that is only Deanna Bogart. She attacks the keyboard with a crispness and flare that is captivating. Her music is well-written with content and with meaning that one can relate to. The talent of her entire band is evident. Eric Scott's voice really complements Deanna's. Kajun Kelly on guitar and Mike Aubin on drums are also true artists. If you like country, jazz, or blues, I would recommend "The Great Unknown." You can't stop yourself from falling for Deanna Bogart! Bravo Deanna!"
A CD for All Music Lovers

"I have seen very few musicians that have the fire and stage presence of Deanna Bogart. The Great Unknown does a marvelous job of capturing her charisma in studio form. Though Deanna is often associated with the blues genre, I found that this CD is more soulful and funky than bluesy. All songs were well written and recorded and display the great talents of not only Deanna, but the other band members as well. The songs on The Great Unknown have really hot, but appropriate, guitar, piano and/or sax riffs. I was especially impressed with the beautiful ballad "But You Know", which is a nice change of pace from all the other high-flying tracks. "Wrong Side of Love" is the best track on the CD for showcasing the band's talent. It has a great guitar lead from Kajun Kelley and a hot piano burn from Deanna. The bass and drums also make their presence felt on the "Wrong Side of Love". Every song on this CD is a great band effort. The music is very high quality and will never get old. Overall, it's a great CD to have for fans of any music loving genre."
