Check Out Disco Baby by Richie Aldente

Hey there.  When it comes to music, I have a pretty wide range of taste.  Though my listening preference is centered in Rock music, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a little Jazz , Classical, or Dance tune here and there.  As far as I can remember, I've always been open to listening to a new band just to check them out, regardless of the genre.  This is where Richi Aldente comes in.  I'll admit, I was thrown off by the band.  The band comes from Seattle, the city that gave us Grunge superstars like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden.   So when I was told Richie Aldente is from Seattle, I was expecting music with Grunge influences and music with dark undertones.  Richie Aldente is far from that!  I took a listen to their sophmore album, Disco Baby, and it was nothing from what I expected.  And that's a good thing!

Chris Cornell's Tribute to Whitney Houston

Hey there.  I expect the tributes to come from all genres of music.  Whitney had such a great voice that it touched and influenced many artists.  Greatness respects greatness and it's only fitting that some of the biggest names in the music business are paying their respects to Whitney Houston.  But just how influential was she?  Just check out this great rendition of I Will Always Love You by Chris Cornell.  One of the pioneers of grunge music reaches across his element and delivers one beautifully crafted tribute.  The guy that screamed Outshine, the man that introduced us to Spoonman, the soul that produced this voice.  So raw, so emotional, so beautiful.  Check it out.
