Review from Music Dish
Burnin' Mike Vernon (guitar), Vic Gerrard (bass), and Freddie Steady Krc (drums), are "3 Balls Of Fire" based out the hotbed of music Austin Texas. Ya know, the place where Stevie Ray came from? These three dudes are not disciples of the blues, oh no, they play instrumental music with a fire and grace that veterans like George Tomsco (The Fireballs) and Nokie Edwards (The Ventures) admire. Now that says a mouthful in retrospect to the culture and genre of the music.
The word "Firepower" couldn't get any more descriptive, Mike Vernon plays so fast at times that there must be flames shooting off those strings by God. These three fireballs of musical refinement and expertise offer up a heapin' helpin' of Texas cuisine, and there is plenty of hot sauce. After basking in a "Sea Of Tranqulity" all you have to do is cross the border and enjoy a peaceful evening "Beneath Mexican Stars", which is a flavorsome morsel of tex-mex instro, and one that Mr. Tomsco would approve of. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy maybe its time to get an instrumental education at "Bali High School" or go to a "Rumble On The Congo" for a change of pace. Hey, these guys have got it covered. The colorful titles of the songs match the prevailing moods and atmospheres. More than once I thought of the gorgeous sheen and beauty of the "Aqua Velvets" while listening to this music. Great instrumental music is visionary and the "3 Balls Of Fire" know how to get the job done by giving the listener a different style and taste of their ever expanding songs-without-words kingdom. It's up to you...Do you want to rock? Take a trip to the jungle? Or go to Tijuana to barter with the street vendors? These gents take a round trip across the musical globe and keep it attention-grabbing and exhilarating every step of the way.
What you get is three guys, three instruments, and plenty of high-powered sound that will delight any instro fan that knows his music. This group is a star amongst stars; and one of brightest burning right now in the galaxy of instrumental groups.
