Way fabu-who knew my husband was so groovy?

"My husband heard Get it Together on WFUV in NYC-found the CD used on line and play it constantly. Every track is fantastic-it's positivly slinky. Plus the kids love to dance to it, too, (so I guess 5 year olds do have taste beyond Barney). But I, too, await more news from Mr. Belasco-especially a tour? Play it and they will come, Pete!"

"Pete Belasco's CD is one I recently discovered. For as good as it is, it's amazing that this is his only release. I described his sound as "what if Ramsey Lewis & Burt Bacharach joined the Beatles to form a jazz group." While Pete is certainly not the Beatles, this sound is unabashedly retro. The opener "All I Want" is a marvelous perky tune with Christian McBride's pulsing bass making a joyful noise. Another of my favorites is "Love Train" with Pete sounding like Smokey Robinson, "You'll be writing love letters in the middle of the night." "Thought it over and you & I should live together," Pete sings on "All in My in My Mind" with McBride's bass again setting a soft soul groove. "Dirty Deed" sounds incredibly like Belasco's piano was channeling Ramsey Lewis from the "Wade in the Water" era; it's one that'll have your head moving and your toe tapping at the same time. Belasco's songs, all of which he wrote, are melodic, soulful, and happy. This 1997 disc is a great blast from the past, one not to be missed. Enjoy!"

"I've had this CD since '98 and it's still on my playlist. The tunes have the kind of hooks that keep you hummin'. The jazz is on the light side, the vocals smooth as Michael Franks and cool as Miles on Kinda Blue. Pete, when do we get to hear some more?"
