Album Notes
Michael O'Neill has finally defined himself as an artist on his third release "Funky Fiesta".Being of half Latin descent, his natural feel for Latin music is evident.It's when he combines the R&B and Funky Jazz elements with his inherent Latin leanings that the unique style is born.After spending 25 years in the business playing with such artists as George Benson,Stevie Wonder,The Crusaders,Natalie Cole and many others Michael brings a lifetime of experience to the table to create this blend that he calls "Funky Fiesta".With guest appearances from such artists as Everette Harp,Michael Lington,Airto,Nathan East,Gregg Karukas,Freddie Ravel,Larry Williams and Kenya Hathaway this cd is a must for the music connoisseur.

Nothing but class
Michael O'Neil and this cd is nothing but pure class. This guy is absolutely thoughtful to his fans and his music is absolutely sensational. Put this cd in and just enjoy. The smooth groove with the latin sound is fantastic. His guitar play is superb. I can hear a little Benson in there also. Trying not to compare him to Benson but just like him (George), Michael can really play. This is some good stuff here. I mean this is really really good. This music is good for the mind body and soul. Check this out and have a wonderful experience.

The Groove Master !
This CD could also have been titled "Groove Fiesta". Simply said it is to me a textbook example of what contemporary jazz is all about. Michael O'Neill created a masterpiece and his songwriting reached new heights. His tone and playing is wonderful. On this album, O'Neill found his true voice. He definitively will show that he belongs to the best. His music is a fantastic mix of jazz, funk, soul and R&B. None of the songs are boring. On the contrary they are all very exciting. "Funky Fiesta" and "The Journey" being two of the many high points. Super music from a superb guitar player. "Funky Fiesta" is THE album of the year in my book. Outstanding ! Thanks !!!!

Your the man
As jazz guitarist You rock,Im from australia and we dont get jazz artists here at all. Ive seen you with george benson lots of times, and your guitar is as good. When are you coming down under as a solo artist.


Simply excellent!!!
Michael O' Neill realised with his brand new CD a real "Chef d'oeuvre". It is beautiful from the beginning to the end with the participation of great musicians like Nathan East, Oscar Seaton or David Garfield.
It's a journey through latin jazz. The song and what a song "Keep on believin'" is in the style of George Michael's "Father's figure" powered with the great voice of Julian Miranda.
The only regret : I would like this CD to last a little bit longer... Just buy it right now!!!
