- bryan beller: wednesday night live
(2011, cd, usa, onion boy records obr-6913004)
Bryan Beller's "Wednesday Night Live" arrived at the U.M.Headquarters about two weeks ago. After "View" in 2003, and "Thanks In Advance" in 2008, "Wednesday Night Live" is Bryan Beller's third solo release.
Besides the two 'bonus tracks', the majority of this album got recorded live in concert at the 'Baked Potato' in L.A. in 2010. At that time, the Bryan Beller Band consisted of Rick Musallam (guitar), Joe Travers (drums), Mike Keneally (keyboard and occasional impossible guitar), Bryan Beller (bass) and Griff Peters (guitar).
The result is fabulous. The band is in top shape and the songs that made it to this album are among my favourite BB compositions. "Wednesday Night Live" combines excellent musicianship and improvisational talents with superb, melodic compositions.
Highly Recommended !!
