Mark Telesca’s “HEAVY BREATHING” CD is a mixture of swampy blues, slide guitar and hard swinging shuffles. Robert Allen Gibbs’ electric square neck Dobro is the perfect compliment for the clean sound of Steve Laudicina’s Telescaster and Tony Monaco’s Hammond B3 and Acoustic piano. The sound is rounded out by Rick”Rico” Geragi and Fred Weng with their Big Beat Drums and Percussion. This is the perfect backdrop for Telesca’s storytelling vocals. The moments that were captured on this CD is of this great band playing live in the studio. It really does leave you wanting more. Enjoy!
