CD REVIEWS Featuring: Burrows and Dilbeck by Shekeyna Black ~

Sonoma County, CA. ~ All The Same, the latest album from Burrows and Dilbeck, is sonically brilliant. Carefully planned arrangements of the 14-tracks lead the lis- tener on an introspective journey pep- pered with i n t r i g u i n g storyl ines and exem- plary instru- mentat ion. Reminiscent of the mu- sic of Level 42, the Jazz- Funk fusion band, Bur- rows and Dilbeck hit a homerun with All the Same and should be getting reg- ular rotation on the radio. Musical

storytellers, Burrows and Dil- beck, formerly from the band, Frobeck, escalate their long- time collaborations to new heights. “Hold On To You” with its inspirational Gospel

feel is uplifting vocally and instrumentally. The bluesy “Let Me Please You Right” asks “How long do we have to wait to live our lives?” “I

on the loose” has an upbeat, danceable natural flow. The album features some

of the finest musicians, as follows: Kris Dilbeck on guitar and hand percus- sion, Spen- cer Burrows on both lead and backing vocals, keys and *glock- enspiel, Ben Lauffer on drums and percussion, Emily Fro- berg on bass guitar, Cal- lie Watts on backing vocals and Steve Stein- berg on sax- ophone. Pro- fessionally produced by Kris Dilbeck and recorded at Adobe Road Studios

See You” blends the sweetest harmonies with profound lyr- ics relevant to issues of today. “Head On” with its clever lyr- ics, “Take a swim inside my shoes, laces tied but monsters

by Kris and Terry Dilbeck, the recording quality is impecca- ble with consistent levels on each of the tracks. Visit the band’s website at:

I was hungry for some fruit the other day and I cut my Asian pear in half. This face looked back at me as well as a pun!
