Monte Procopio Is Having “A Swingin’ Time” On New Release



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 20, 2006--Scottsdale, Arizona-- Monte Procopio grew up in a small coal-mining town called Mt. Carmel, Pennsylvania with a population of around 10,000. Those small town values surfaced in Monte at an early age and he grew up with a love and respect for the great singers such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Nat King Cole. Today he displays his love of the past through his own music by interpreting the classics through two exceptional studio albums.

In 2004, Swingin’ With Style was released and it was well received by critics and listeners alike. This month the highly anticipated follow up to that recording is set for release. A Swingin’ Time continues to give the nod to the past greats as Monte covers timeless classics such as All Or Nothing At All, The Very Thought Of You, That Old Black Magic, Fly Me To The Moon, Route 66, and many others that will spark old memories and bring a smile to your heart.

Monte has received rave revues for his performances and has performed with Alan King, Vikki Carr, Phyllis Diller, and others. As his musical resume and experience grew, he reached a level of maturity as a performer that is unmistakably spot on with A Swingin’ Time .

Following a suggestion from Clarke Rigsby his producer on Swingin’ With Style, Monte met with Grammy Award winning arranger Robert (Bob) M. Freedman and was able to get Bob to sign on for the A Swingin’ Time project. After assembling an outstanding line up of musicians as he did for the first release, everything fell into place and Monte, Clarke, and Bob proceeded to record the new release. A 13-piece band is a featured component in each of the tracks and the arrangements are very distinctive.

The musicianship is beyond reproach on all of these tracks and A Swingin’ Time is certain to put Monte Procopio on the map and inject new life into the timeless classics covered on the release.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…
