Album Notes
If you've ever heard a person finish another's thought, you know that
those two people are on the same wavelength. If Nichols and Zupe are
not twin brothers in this life, they probably were in another. They
are certainly on the same wavelength musically. Throughout this
recording, the keyboard finishes or echoes the guitar player's idea
and vice versa. These guys are in sync and it is clear that they have
been playing together for years.

When I first listened to this recording, I heard Jeff Beck, Joe
Zawinul, Sting and Lyle Mays playing in a reunited Steely Dan with a
horn section from New Orleans. Really. This is an album that fans
will love and musicians will be amazed by. This group of players is
clearly a cut above the rest of us. When I discovered that the drums
are all samples and loops, I was even more impressed. The sequencing
and arranging of this recording is masterful. It's challenging to get
a group of musicians this tight and it's even harder to make a machine
sound like a group of musicians this tight! Clearly a lot of time and
expertise was put into this project.

Words alone cannot adequately express my feelings about this
masterpiece. I believe discerning listeners will connect to it
deeply, and it's one that will be in my collection forever.

Au Contraire!
I have way too many words to be ˜speechless’ about this album. This album took me on a deep emotional journey that was absolutely magnificent! It is definitely best appreciated in one sitting. I saved my first uninterrupted listen for my headphones; it was a total experience that was simply unbelievable. I can honestly count on one hand (with fingers left over!) the number of works that have affected me that way on their first listen. Then I had the opportunity to play it on the stereo and fill the house with sound. Twice more through and the thrill only deepened. I prefer the headphones for this one. It’s much too personal for speakers. "Speechless” is not just a work of art; it is truly a masterpiece.

Great Album!!
What a great album and it's fun to listen to These guys are excellent writers that take popular styles of music and yet add their own personal flare. Great musicians and super arrangements. It's a break from the ordinary listening. You deserve this album!!!


Deja vu Dave

Impressive Instrumental Blend of Jazz, Rock, and Blues
“Speechless” by Zupe & Nichols is a superb blend of jazz, rock, and blues-infused instrumental tracks. The musicianship on this album is energetic and highly accomplished. In fact, both the guitar work and the keyboard work are clearly the products of virtuosos. The rest of the band is top-notch as well, and come together to provide a very tight sound and effective groove on these complex arrangements. “Captain & Coke” is one track that hovers very high, starting off with a reggae vibe and quickly transitioning into a heavy blues sound. The electric guitar solos and piano runs on this song are phenomenal. Moreover, the title-track also stands out due to its free-flow, ever-changing nature. Listeners will not be disappointed by this collection; it is composed and performed with aptitude that many strive for. Even more enticing is its deliberate and top-quality production.
