ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Santa Fe & The Fat City Horns are one of the most exciting, versatile, and creative bands on the scene today. Formed in Las Vegas in 1999 by vocalist/guitarist Jerry Lopez, SF&TFCH are a collection of the finest musicians in Las Vegas NV—musicians who spend much of their time backing artists such as Celine Dion and Donny & Marie Osmond, or performing in shows such as Jersey Boys and Rock of Ages. Then on Monday nights at 10:30, they get together on stage at the Palms casino in Las Vegas to bring their special brand of “healing” to their audience, themselves, and to the music scene in general. The “healing” comes from soulful, passionate performances and old school camaraderie that is rarely seen in today’s troubled world.

While definitely old school in their approach to live performances, SF&TFCH are very original and new in their musical conception. Clearly influenced by horn bands of the past like Earth Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Chicago and others, this band has broken down stylistic barriers that confined other bands, and refined a sound that has aspects of funk, jazz, latin, pop, and rock, while ultimately sounding like no one but themselves. This is largely due to the unique makeup of the band: five distinct lead singers, a six piece horn section, an incredible rhythm section, and several different songwriters and arrangers, all of whom come from varied personal and musical backgrounds. Some are college educated jazz musicians, some are street trained funk players, but they all have these things in common: an intense groove, a perpetual creative spark, and the unbridled joy of making music together as a cohesive unit. This melting pot of talent led to two thrilling live recordings; “Live” in 2005, and “Let The Healing Begin” in 2007, and two remarkably unique and satisfying studio recordings; “When The Curtain Goes Up” in 2009, and now “The Answer”.

Continue the Healing
Another CD in my library that will blast through the walls of my home, the walls of my office and out the windows of my car as I play it again and again. Because they play what they want to, and not what they feel they have to, anyone listening always, and I mean always gets the best from these guys. CD or live, you not only hear the music, but feel it. You become a part of what they experience, a part of the healing. If you are ever in Las Vegas, they are a must see. If you can't get to Las Vegas, they buy their CDs, better yet, do both.

Only one by my count- Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns, without compare! This albums knocks it out of the park. Turn it up and get blown away. For thee musical experience of your life make the pilgrimage to the Palms in Vegas Monday nights. You will not be the same afterwards.
