'Snow Bunny's Revenge' the new music video from Jean Fight.

Jean Fight a great new band in New York City, that I have been following for a year now, has released it's first music video. 'Snow Bunny's Revenge' it's a fast moving tune and a video to match it well. The tune written by lead singer, Erin Pellnat and arranged by the band is a perfect match for the zany video.

Here's what Erin had to say about the project::
"The release of Snow Bunny's Revenge is especially exciting for us because it is Jean Fight's first music video. We filmed it on a whim in just four hours with phenomenally talented director, Robert Kolodny, kingpin of House Of Nod Inc. It is here and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Mike Leuis put an enormous amount of time and energy into editing it and did a stellar job. The timing could not be more perfect. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we are enjoying giving it to you!"

The Band::  Guitar - Richard Emery   Bass - Dylan Kaminkow
       Keys - Damian Sim     Drums - Tyler Joseph and Vocals: Erin Pellnat


Additional credits include:  Sound Recording/Engineering - Nathaniel Schroeder
Titles - Lori Arden  Assistants - Bennett Elliott, Christopher James Cazavilan

'Under Control' From Greta's Bakery.

Greta's Bakery, has produced their second album. This project is a totally independent one. Co produced by Andrea Sammartino, and Los Angeles California's noted producer Larry Williams, who also lends his talents to the tune 'My Angel' on this work, with a wonderful sax solo to the vocal magic of Greta Panettieri.

Miss Panettieri is the vocalist, as she was on Greta's Bakery's first album from 2010, 'The Edge of Everything' (DECCA). The group was based in New York City in 2010, now they work out of Rome, Italy. And will be putting together a tour of Europe this summer.

A 'labor of love' is how Greta expressed her feeling to me about this new project. Also joining the Bakery is Curtis King Jr. of the E Street Band. Greta and Curtis team up on 'Lover', the opening tune on the album an R&B tune, where both their range and velvet tones are matched to perfection.

 Greta's Bakery
The album is a delight, a mix of R&B, Blues and of course when Greta is involved, some jazz and her amazing scatting ability.

'Guessing and Surmising' and the title tune 'Under Control' display the top to bottom range that Greta is known for. Perfect intonation, scatting that makes sense and never looses the listener, and her amazing improvisational skills make this album a music lover's choice.

'I Just Can't Stop Loving You' the Michael Jackson tune, is taken on here by Greta. She inhabits it, puts a feminine touch on it, with the tenderness only she can deliver both vocally and emotionally. I'm not crazy about 'cover' tunes but this is special, a wonderful tribute to MJ, he would love it.
 Here is the brilliant video::'I Just Can't Stop Loving You'

 All in all this will be a great addition to your music library, it's done to perfection.

Also contributing on this project::
Andrea Sammartino: Piano, Synths, Co/Producer & Sound Engineer
Larry Williams: Tenor Saxophone, Co/Producer
Curtis King Jr.: Vocals
Daniele Mencarelli: Bass, except 'Under Control' by Fabio Capone

Greta Panettieri~~New York City Jazz Fest 2014

The essence of what I'm trying to do, by telling the world that there are Independent people in music who are as good or better than what you are being 'force fed' by the music conglomerate, played out right before my eyes last weekend in NYC.

Going to NYC Jazz Fest, seeing about 8 or 10 artists, and realizing the woman you walked in with and standing next to, sipping vino with, was better than them all, no, not just better, on a higher level! (she's too modest, but we all know it's true)........

Video, 'Guessing and Surmising'   From her new album:: 'Under Control'  

Me & Greta at NYC Jazz Fest


















Greta at our Bitter End Show, with Lara Bello & Clara Lofaro
  














So if you are in New York City, or any major city, get out, seek out the artists who need your support.
NYC, there are hundreds of Indie venues, stop in, see what these wonderful musicians are doing.
