BLUES AND LASERS CD REVIEW
2008 Illusion Tournet Music
While this CD was released in 2008 it could easily have been released in the late 70s. It has a classic rock sound with influences of southern rock mixed in. The dueling guitars of Scott Tournet and Benny Yurco makes you want to jump around the room, hips swaying and the solid drumming of Matt Burr and Steve Sharon keeps your head banging. You can hear influences from Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, The Allman Brothers. Bryan Dondero adds a great bass and some interesting sounds on the moog and theramin.
The CD has five tracks but don’t let that fool you. The guys jam and weave a solid sound on most of the tracks bringing the playing time to around 40 minutes. 40 minutes of swampy blues that will leave you longing for a live performance of this rocking outfit!
