ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
James Reeno is a bonafide "Native New Yorker" (just like the song says).
Growing up in the 70's and 80's, he was hugely influenced by all the great disco, funk, soul, & early 80's club music & electro that was coming out of New York at the time (even though this music was coming out of everywhere else under the sun as well)

The early 80's funk/electro made the biggest impression on him, although it took about 20 years for him to fully realize it!

He started playing the drums in his teens, which led up to him taking up an interest in keyboards and production/engineering.

His latest cd, "Funk it up", is a 6-track EP featuring 3 vocal tracks, along with 3 instrumentals.
His influences (Prince, D-train, Paul Hardcastle, Herbie Hancock, Phil Collins) are quite evident in all his productions, and these songs are no exception.

On "Funk it up", the listener is treated to funky soundscapes created by vintage analog synthesizers, chunky rhythm guitars, and a very effective use of tasteful drum programming combined with live percussion & hi-hats.

Reeno feels that most of these elements are severely lacking in today's music, and is certain that you will agree....

ENJOY ZE FUNK!!!!

Awesome. The next Stevie Wonder!
What can you say about this guy that hasn't already been written by the critics? Mind-blowing synth washes, old-skool drum patterns, tunes that quickly leave imprints on the memory banks. How does he do it?

Bernie Worrell has nothin' on this cat.

The big fat chunks of funk you've been missing.
I'm really digging this cd on a whole, I listen to it on my way to and from work I must have played it 15 times already since I got it in my mailbox. My favorites are 1 & 6.
The instrumentation and arrangements are just what my ears want to hear, the production is ear watering, and the funk is everywhere -just oozing. I like the female singer's voice it fits great with this style of music. Unlike most of the color-by-number "music" you hear on the radio, this stuff stays fresh and will probably sound fresh ten years from now since Reeno isn't using fads and gimmicks in the music.

I can't wait to hear the album!

Yup! This is music is NOT for DRONES!!!
The thick sounds move "through" you rather than just past you like most of today's music! This has energy..AND GOOD energy! This was written from the heart and appreciation of music with a fantastic production value that will make on reminisce of the time when music had different styles and sounds!!! It is not for the "repititious mindless masses" that have become the product of corporate ownership!
