ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
William Troiani, Bill or Billy among friends, was born in New York City, NY in 1949. He started playing the bass when he was 11, and was quickly turned on to RnB and Blues. By the time he reached his twenties, he was playing music full time. While still situated on the American east coast he toured and/or recorded with such diverse artists as Eddie Kirkland and Tom Russell.

Since moving to Norway, just over a decade ago, Bill Troiani has established himself as one of Scandinavia's premier bassplayers for RnB, Blues and Roots Music. He has played with virtually the entire Norwegian music elite, and has been a permanent member of both Amund Maarud's and Vidar Busk's touring bands. In '99, Bill Troiani founded the Muddy Waters Blues Club's houseband together with Kid Andersen, Charlie Musselwhite's current guitarist. He led the houseband until the fall of '06. Backing international artists like Nappy Brown, Homesick James, Lazy Lester, Marva Wright and Bill Sims Jr. to name a few.

The Hawk

Highly recommended
New York native Bill Troiani tours with guitar wizard Vidar Busk and, when he is not playing bass alongside the cream of Norway's musicians, fronts the Billy T Band. Troiani's new album, A Little Mixed Up (Big H Records-BIGHCD0701), displays a scholars touch in relying on excellent but underutilized songs from the American music canon, including Tommy Ridgley's "My Ordinary Girl"; two classics from Big Joe Turner's Atlantic years; Sir Mack Rice's "Love Sickness" ; and Johnny Horton's haunting "Lover's Rock", a Sonny Burgess composition. A few genre-perfect originals: Ian Fredrick Johannessen's organ-guitar workout "Oscar's Bounce" and Troiani's lowdown "Can't Be Good" and "Don't Do It", round out a superb set of expertly played and well sung roots music. Highest recommendation.
