I could not put the CDs down when I got them!
Your 2 CDs are an example of your versatility. You have grown as a writer, a musician and your vocals are better than ever. I could not put the CDs down when I got them.

I also enjoyed the Tropics, you guys were such a large part of my teen years. Damn bro, where did all those years go?

"Oh what joy! It's like a breath of fresh air blowing through the house!"
Sitting here going through this weeks batch of Cd's that have been dropped on my door mat, I am begining to hope the next one is not going to be either a tribute to Robert Johnson or somebody trying to be SRV mixed with Hendrix.
Then out of the blue I put on Charlie Souza's " 9 Ball In The Corner Pocket" CD and oh what joy, Like a breath of fresh air blowing through the house!
Every track on the CD has such feeling and depths it's a pleasure to listen to. So if you find yourself sitting back wondering what CD to play for a change then go no further than this one! Then, after you have played it, go out and find "Live Your Dream " anther great CD from Charlie.

9 Ball in the Corner Pocket zählt zu den absoluten Favoriten in meiner Sammlung. Charlie Souza zieht alle Register eines guten Musikers: Rock, Pop, Funk, Balladen - und sogar ein Beatles-Klassiker darf auf dieser CD nicht fehlen. Diese CD ist in MUSS für Fans guter Musik. Darum kann ich jedem nur raten, diese CD umgehend zu bestellen.

After the Souza-man's last rock-effort, I was curious to see where he'd go... well, NYC DREAMS is one of the best rock-tracks I've heard this year... you should see the video too! Really, Souza deserves to be on every station's playlist. Joyful, soulful music...enjoy! And I'm not even a pool-man!

Love it!
It's refreshing to hear good music these days. Some of my favorite songs on this CD are New York City Dreams, Goin' for Broke and I'm Flyin'. Great dance and listening music. Perfect driving music for the road, too. The CD rocks! You'll want to turn up the volume!! Buy it; you won't be disappointed.


Great album
I think this is my favourite album. But then again it's hart to pick a favourite Charlie Souza album. Loving your stuff, so glad I stumbled across you. Peace, Ray.

A Sure Winner !
The Charlie Souza Band is a trio of talented musicians who create solid guitar based rock music. Powerful percussions, solid bass lines and other musical touches complete this well-rounded collection. This nine-song set is well produced and a fine example of writing collaborations and the musical proficiency of each band member. 9 Ball in the Corner Pocket is a fun CD drawing from a variety of music styles and reflects a variety of moods. The CD opens with 'New York City Dreams' a hip-hop influenced song with a metropolitan feel complete with powerful guitars and a soulful chorus. 'Lightin' Bolt' has flashing guitars, thunderous bass and percussion and is energizing. 'Angel on the Mountain' peaks with great guitar chords, heavenly bass lines and potent percussion especially at the hook line. 9 Ball in the Corner Pocket is a sure winner with solid instrumentation, lots of synergy and varied soundscapes.
