shaking the soul tree Songs

"Al Basile, songwriter, cornetist, vocalist was the world-class trumpeter for Roomful of Blues in the mid 70s. Since then, he has fronted jazz combos and scripted hundreds of songs: some with me and for my recordings, and played on various of my albums. With the release of 'Down on Providence Plantations' and 'Shaking the Soul Tree', he has embarked on a solo recording career, demonstrating his unique blend of American roots musical styles in an poriginal way with flair and taste." Duke Robillard

"...Al Basile should be familiar from credits on Duke Robillard projects. This Robillard-produced solo record (Shaking the Soul Tree - Sweetspot 3882) is notable for Basile's richly inflected singing and superior, soul-centered songwriting. The midtempo 'Look Into It' boasts a stunning horn chart; 'Thirty-Five Women,' with its Latin percussion, nails the Drifters-meets-Arthir Alexander groove; 'You Know'is lush 60s pop-soul; 'Bad Intentions' struts like a stray cat." Blues Revue

"...the album is a zesty representation of sweet and sassy soul, R&B, and the blues...Basile, originally a fiction writer, proves to be an excellent lyricist, too, on the animated 'Rueful Rules' and 'Lorelei'...a multi-dimensional listen with lots of really cool licks."
The Providence Phoenix

"Fat R&B vibes, groove, Blues, swing and even some haunting pictures evoked by his vocals and guitar playing make this a diverse treat for many tastes, which include mine! Favorites are "Rueful Rules", "Drive Me
Darling", "One Step Closer", "Ain't That A Man".
Simon Aguilar, KYNR, Crazy Coyote Blues
