“Riccardo Grosso pays respect to the Chicago Blues masters with a hard swinging band. His harmonica varies from soulful soft tones to pile driving fever pitch, and comes straight from the heart. Bravo!” – Dale Spalding (Canned Heat)
“Grosso’s hi level harp playing through out the whole CD is dripping with Soul and originality but always paying respect to his mentors. He never copies riffs on his harp but rather builds and expands on the Masters who came before him.” – Rob Paparozzi (Original Blues Brothers, Blood Sweat & Tears)
“Man, your recording sounds really good. I hope it does well for you because it really should! Bravo!!!” – Charlie Musselwhite
The Road And The Room is a selection of songs from the same live show and a couple of hand picked tunes from Riccardo Grosso’s favorite artists.
Along with different grooves, energy and atmospheres taken from the band’s live, you would enjoy a personal and intimate version of Sonny Boy Williamson II hit “Fattening Frogs For Snakes” and a version of Tom Waits’ “Til The Money Runs Out” that is now part of the band’s repertoire.
