ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ain’t That Somethin’?

When was the last time that you bought a CD that was filled with great music from start to finish?

So often when we buy a CD from our favorite artist on a major record label, we’re lucky to get three songs that we love to listen to, as we skip through the rest of the mediocre music to get to them. Even more disappointing when you break it down to dollars and cents is that we just spent over $15.00 to listen to the three songs that we like. That’s 5 buck$ a song….OUCH!

D.C. & Co.’s “Ain’t That Somethin’” is the exception to the rule. This is 14 tracks of original Horn-Powered Rockin’ Blues, Swing, Funk & Jazz, that will turn you every which way but off! This disc combines songwriting at its finest, with top notch musicianship and a raw honest energy that makes the music jump to life.

Sterling Kotch, blues editor at PA Musician wrote “D.C. & Co. do it all and do it well!” Gordan Baxter from Blues On Stage, wrote “Ain’t That Somethin’ certainly lives up to it’s name!”

Think Chicago, back when they made real music, throw in Carlos Santana, some T.O.P., Allman Brothers, even a touch of Miles Davis, and that’s just the tip of this musical ice burg! This is a musically, wild rollercoaster ride that will grab you emotionally, rhythmically and intellectually from the start and take you through all the twist and turns, and ups and downs of a great ride. You will want to listen to this CD over and over.

Linda Garboczi of Saratoga, NY, bought the CD and wrote “ZOWEEE! Ain’t That Somethin’ is a work of art! I can’t stop listening to it” and Ray Grunnert for the Intellegencer Journal printed “Here’s an 8 piece band that you’ll be glad you got together with and glad they got you feeling good!

Are you an avid music collector? Or are you like a lot of us that buy a CD when you hear a song that you like and hope that the rest of the CD will be good? In either case, it doesn’t matter because we’re so sure that D.C. & Co.’s “Ain’t That Somethin’” will bring you countless hours of listening enjoyment that we guarantee it! If you don’t fall in love with this CD, just send it to us and we will gladly and immediately send you a full refund!

Thousands of music lovers have made this choice, and are already enjoying this collection of timeless, original rockin’ blues classics. Steve Garber, from Denver Colorado, wrote, “We like “Ain’t That Somethin’” so much that we’re buying three more to give as Christmas presents.”

Music from D.C. & Co.’s “Ain’t That Somethin’” has been repeatedly featured on NBC’s Today Show while continually charting on Jazz and Blues radio stations through out the world. This CD has also received rave reviews in international press. Blues Access says, “Band leader Dave Costarella has a Rocky soulful voice and a band to die for!” While Blues revue reported, “Tight arrangements and on the money vocals by Dave Costarella have class and vigor!”

This disc features such a variety of blues styles and flavors starting fast and furiously with “Take Me Down” featuring all the funk of a James Brown Band mixed with stinging Duane Allman like slide guitar leads .

What A But-But is big band swing at it’s finest and funnest! Sing a long –“I hate to see you go but I love to watch you walk away!”

South of Eden is a tribute to the late-great primitive folk artist Ellis Ruley and is drenched with Miles Davis like muted trumpet swells and heart felt lyrics “Paint me the person, that I know I can be. Use the Colors of strength and the shadings of free”

There is just so much wonderful music on this disc by so many great musicians. Over 22 of the north east’s Jazz and Blues greats have performed on this recording, including International recording artist, vocalist Robin Work on the big band balladry of Another Day. Not to mention the incredible trombone solo on this track by Bill Gingrich.

Also appearing on this Disc is world renowned blues and jazz legend, Frank DiNunzio lending his Sinatra-esque vocals and sweet jazz guitar licks to Clip My Wings. While Rockabilly powerhouse Big Tone Torres offers a Chuck Berry styled “Move It On Down The Line”

Jazz Now critic, Ken Egbert says “Ain’t That Somethin’ is a breath of seriously fresh air!” and he goes on to say “This band’s sense of talent and depth is formidable.” Music Morsels editor Mark E. Waterbury posted “Dave Costarella creates a heady brew of funk, rock, jazz & blues with this blistering bad ass disc!”

Bandleader/ songwriter Dave Costarella takes you on a musical journey through out this disc. Through lyrics and music, he masterfully creates and communicates the feeling and emotions that we all endure and enjoy on a daily basis. From falling in love to feeling numb, from losing a loved one to partying on a Saturday night, from reacting to a beautiful body to wanting to give up on life.

Dave Costarella creates a heady brew of funk, jazz, rock and blues
Dave Costarella creates a heady brew of funk, jazz, rock and blues with this blistering bad ass disc. The full throttle horn fueled boogie of "What a But-But" is like the Bus Boys on Tower of Power. "I Don't Mind" is back alley funky blues at it's finest. "La Samba De Costarella" takes a wild instrumental journey south of the border while "Party On the 4th of July" brings it back home in a way Sammy Davis Jr would be proud of. A veritable blast with great musicianship as well.

Ain't That Somethin' is a breath of seriously fresh air
Ain't That Somethin' is a breath of seriously fresh air: think Randy Newman in a good mood for once and fronting Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Think Joe Cocker revving the old engine for one more go-round. Mr. Costerella has one of those seriously raunchy catarrh-laden voices like Rod Stewart early on, and his band can back him to the hilt.

"Ain't That Somethin'" certainly lives up to its title!
"Ain't That Somethin'" certainly lives up to its title. It makes you sit up and take notice from the start, and it is guaranteed to have your feet moving before it has run its course. DC & Co combine rhythm and blues, soul and jazz to produce a great sound, which at times brings to minds bands like Roomful of Blues, and Tower of Power. DC is obviously a man with a mission to get everyone off their seats and onto the dance floors. "Ain't That Somethin'" should certainly do just that. Great stuff!

This is a great sounding CD, featuring big horns and big arrangements from extr
This is a great sounding CD, featuring big horns and big arrangements from extremely professional musicians. From the bluesy "Take Me Down" to the latin styled "La Samba de Costarella" to the Rat Pack swing of "Clip My Wings" to the 50s style rocker "Move It On Down The Line" D.C. and Co. do it all and do it well. All of the songs on the CD are originals, a bold move that the band pulls off in style.
