About This Item
The partnership of Mark Mayo on guitar and Mark Polott on bass present their latest collaboration, Urban Blue. Joined by a hot horn section and keyboards, the band burns through thirteen original songs and the Robert Johnson classic, Crossroads. The duos maturity as songwriters is evident as you progress from track to track. The set showcases Mayo's robust tone and bluesy voice and fixes his place in the heirarchy of great New York guitarists. Polott's energetic basslines set the pace for the musical journey and his melodic vocals give a varying texture to the range of material on the CD. Mix in the steamy Hammond organ of Jim Taormina and the fiery sax of new young talent, Senien Hicks, and the result reminds you of some of the great classics but is something entirely new. The sessions are rounded out by Dave Painchaud on trumpet and drummers Doug Sako and the irrepressible Alan Scott Plotkin, who has joined the group after a chance encounter in an elevator. Mark and Mark called on their friend, Lloyd Landesman to engineer and co-produce the album. He was a bandmate when they all played together in Haystacks Balboa, one of New Yorks great underground bands in the 70's.
