the late ‘70s Richie Zito was one of the most sought-after session
. In his career he has helped out and played with
acts like; Art Garfunkel, Beach
Boys, Tina Turner, Elton John, Mr. Big and Tyketto among others.
album called “Avalon – The Richie Zito Project” is “his”
project where he gathered some
of the artists he had the pleasure to work with during his career, and
to deliver a
classic AOR release and his ultimate dream album.
tracks featuring names like; Joe Lynn Turner, Eddie Money, Eric Martin
and Joseph Williams, to
name a few. Yes…
12 tracks… but sadly 10 of them are quite boring in my opinion. Only
“Blue Collar”, featuring Hugo
Valenti (Valentine) and “Avalon”, featuring Danny Vaughn (Tyketto)
is a pleasant surprise…the rest of them are boring Pop-ballads and
boring AOR/Melodic Rock songs.
after numerous listens only the 2 songs mentioned above stands out.
Listen before you buy.
