In our rush to get ready for album release party at the beginning of the month, we completely forgot to post this review of Speed Of Soul by Sam Pfeilfe of The Portland Phoenix. Dig it people…
People probably underestimate how hard it is to play the brass and woodwinds (saxophone=woodwind). They ain’t harmonicas. Breath control and omberture? They take practice.
Maybe that’s why an arrangement of alto and baritone sax, trombone, and trumpet combining to front a band like Mama’s Boomshack grabs your attention so completely. There just aren’t many bands doing that.
We won’t spoil the rest, go ahead and give it a read for yourself. Lots of love to Mr. Pfeilfe for the kind words and also to whichever staffer at The Phoenix who decided to feature Lisa and John on the front cover of that issue!
If you’re not in the area and want to grab a copy of the new album, you have some options… The album is currently available in CD form at Bull Moose locations (Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, and Lewiston) as well as through their website. Listeners can visit our Bandcamp page to download the album in various lossless formats or purchase downloads through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other online stores.
