Tony also has former Tower members Skip Mesquite, and current member Doc Kupka. Additonally, Tony has added the talents of Paul van Wageningen, Eddie Henderson, Paul Jackson, and Rodney Franklin among others to this great new CD. The CD contains elements of R&B, Soul, and Jazz. Three songs from this CD have been added and are as follows:

  • Groove Therapy

The second CD is from the Minneapolis based band BlowZone. The Cd is their self title effort "BLOWZONE". BlowZone is a band for people who like to think, feel, and move…all at the same time. Featuring a 5-piece horn section, this Minneapolis-St.Paul-based ensemble has often, and aptly, been described as “genre-bending”. With direct influences that include Miles Davis, Tower of Power, James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Jimmy Smith, Sly, and the Beatles, the band keeps “a foot in the history and an eye on the future.” BlowZone makes sure the fun stays on top of every groove. Enjoy the band's original songs as well as covers of Bobbie Gentry's "Ode To Billie Joe" and Joni Mitchell's "Helpless." The following three songs from this CD have been added this week:

  • Jimmy & Walter & Lee
