I love Peter Cincotti! He has a fresh voice and original ideas that come through in every album and performance and this one is no exception.
Peter Cincottis, east of angel town is a very good cd, 15 tracks make up this cd, and I found 9 of them to be great and the others listenable. Cincotti rocks up the jazz sound he normally permeates. Tracks such as Angel Town jump livly off the album and take you for a merry run through the L.A.nightlife of imposters. Cincotti and his band make this an ever entertaining album and one that any rock/jazz fan should add to their collection, filled with great piano riffs and acompaning horns and a driving drum back beat there is not a single thing wrong with this album.
After seeing Peter Cincotti on The View, I looked him up and sampled a few songs. I was intrigued by all of them so I bought the album. AMAZING!!! Each song has an almost cinematic narrative. He's a great storyteller. And the music and piano-playing -- wow! It mixes a bunch of different musical styles -- pop, rock, jazz, funk. There are ballads and more uptempo songs. There's an instrumental in the middle of Witch's Brew that blew me away. I LOVE this album. I can't stop listening to it. I hope more people discover it.
Cincotti's first, full foray into recording original material is a strong effort. Many of the songs have a solid message, if somewhat repetitive throughout the album. For fans of Cincotti's previous albums, which included several renditions of standard material, this may be somewhat of a disappointment; however, in an attempt to reach new fans, Cincotti's effort is strong. Although his strength seems to reside in ballads, Cincotti makes several attempts to "move the crowd" with up-tempo pieces; however, his "meat and potato" pieces are represented as well... as with the powerful "Lay Your Body Down (Goodbye, Philadelphia)". Ideally, on Cincotti's next full-album effort, he'll include a well-balanced mix of standards (perhaps from the catalogs of such artists as Johnny Hartman, Chet Baker, etc.) as well as original songs of his own. Still, for his first full album of original material, Peter Cincotti has again provided a pleasant album for music lovers to enjoy.
