Of this new CD, MICK FLEETWOOD has been quoted as saying, "A total pleasure...absolutely incredible, impeccable, and soulful. Rick nailed some serious stuff here. I love this album!"
"BAND BOX BOOGIE" is the latest release from former Fleetwood Mac member and W.C. Handy Award winning artist, Rick Vito. Rick has also worked with such classic blues and rock artists as John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and Bob Seger (that's him playing slide guitar on the "Like A Rock" TV Chevy truck commercial), and has made a name for himself as a guitarist of rare quality.
This CD blends Rick's unique brand of tasty guitar flash on material that incorporates elements of jump blues, cool swing and sensual slide guitar-driven rock and roll.
Backed by a pumping rhythm section that features the sax work of Jim Hoke, acoustic bassist Glen Worf, and drummer Ian Wallace (among others), Rick makes an impressive vocal delivery on tunes such as "Where Did You Go, Bettie Page?," "Last Chance to Mambo," and "Little Sheba," and tears up the frets on "Blues Town," and the fiery swing instrumental title track, "Band Box Boogie."
This is a great guitar-lovers CD, and will also be appreciated by those who appreciate their bluesy rock & roll with a jump and jive feel to it.
"BAND BOX BOOGIE" received a five star pick from Guitar Techniques magazine ("...an album that took our breath away from track one!"), and will soon receive featured reviews in both Guitar Player, and Vintage Guitar magazines.
We're betting that you'll love this one!
âA singer and guitarist of the first rank. You are listening to a master of his instrument who is finally getting some of the attention as bluesman/bandleader that is long overdue!â JOHN MAYALL
â Rick Vitoâs guitar playing just slays me! His style is as cool and sharp as a â59 Cadillac tailfinâ¦.â BONNIE RAITT
Few musicians in the past few decades can lay claim to the caliber of credits held by singer-guitarist, Rick Vito. His stellar slide and lead guitar work has enriched the recordings and performances of such legendary Hall of Fame rock and blues artists as Bob Seger, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, John Mayallâs Bluesbreakers, Roy Orbison, and scores of others. To date he has appeared on over one hundred released recordings, and his haunting slide solo on Segerâs âLike A Rock,â has been heard by untold millions as the guitar voice on the Chevrolet truck TV commercial ads over the past decade!
Perhaps best known as a member of legendary supergroup Fleetwood Mac (1987-1991), Rickâs presence brought back a passionate bluesy quality to the bandâs music. His original songs and guitar/vocal performances are featured on their recordings, âBehind the Mask,â âThe Chain,â âGreatest Hits,â âThe Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac,â and the live concert DVD, âTango In The Nightâ.
Rickâs debut solo album, âKing Of Heartsâ released in 1992 on Atlantic Records, was praised in Guitar Player magazine as â...a dazzling collection of fiery, slide guitar-driven songs.â His voice and guitar were again captured at their finest in his second solo work, 1998âs âPink & Black,â this time in a more traditional blues-rock setting.
In 2000 Rick signed with the German based Hypertension Music label which released an incredible third solo CD, âLucky Devils.â He then took his band to tour Europe where he appeared on the now classic "Ohne Filter" TV show, which was released on DVD in 2004 as âRick Vito Live In Concert.â
Rickâs recent endeavors have included much-heralded world tours with blues and rock icons, Bonnie Raitt, and John Fogerty. As producer, Rick also collaborated with ârockabilly filly,â Rosie Flores. This resulted with the release of âSpeed of Sound,â which received uniformly incredible reviews. Rickâs guitar work also appears on recent releases by Delbert McClinton (the Grammy winning, âNothing Personalâ), Hank Williams Jr., and The Tractors.
Warner Brothers major movie release, âAngel Eyes,â starring Jennifer Lopez, featured Rickâs song, âItâs Two A.M.â, as performed by Alligator Recordâs superstar, Shemekia Copeland. This song also garnered Rick the prestigious W.C. Handy Award for âBlues Song of the Year.â
In the Dreamworks motion picture, âThe Castle,â starring Robert Redford, and James Gandolfini, Rick is featured in a rare cameo as a military police captain. His songs have also appeared on many TV shows including âWithout A Trace,â âThieves,â âFelicity,â âHBOâs Real Sex,â and âEverwood.â
Rickâs next CD, âCrazy Cool,â was released in 2002 in Europe followed again by a sellout tour that also included rave performances at major Blues festivals there. A fifth CD, âBandbox Boogie,â followed in late 2003. More in the tradition of jump and swing blues, it includes many show-stopping favorites such as âBlues Town,â âLittle Sheba,â âWhere Did You go, Bettie Page,â and the blistering title track instrumental, a salute to Rickâs guitar idols of the swing era.
Rickâs new 2006 CD, âRattlesnake Shake,â is a tour de force for all fans of slide guitar, blues, and rhythm-rock, and is now available exclusively on his website. He continues to tour worldwide to enthusiastic audiences everywhere.
Perhaps bluesman Keb Moâ said it best: ââ¦.Soulful singer, brilliant guitarist. You got to check Rick Vito out for sure!â
