Monaco celebrates 50 years in the business on his 12th recording!

No one needs to explain celebrating the first 50 years of his life's work, especially when his colorful career has earned him an international profile! Furthermore, such a guy might be excused for feeling jubilant upon the release of his twelfth exciting new recording! But Tony has yet more in mind.

'After 50 great years I want to take the opportunity to honor and thank my hometown, Columbus. To find myself recognized as a part of this town's vibrant musical scene is personally very rewarding to say the least! But this is also my chance to shine a light on one of my major teachers, Columbus' own Don Patterson, who is not yet fully recognized among this city's many great Hammond B3 players through the years.'

For this hard-swinging new recording Tony displays his usual unerring instincts by hand picking some of Columbus' finest talent to join him. Edwin Bayard, saxes, Kevin Turner, guitar and Willie Barthel III, percussion, have lent their considerable individual talents to the maximum collective powerhouse effect Tony's music demands.

But there's more to it than the great chops and the musicality! The friendship and conviviality of these sessions are perfectly clear as we listen! Lots of swingin' cookin' joy! Your pleasure is guaranteed!
