Vivino Brothers Discography of CDs

CD Check Availability  Details Hybrid; SACD Hybrid
Vivino Brothers music CDs Those who watched 1990s late-night television should be familiar with the work of the Vivino Brothers, who were music directors for NBC's Late Night With Conan O'Brian. On that program, the job of singer/guitarist/pianist Jimmy Vivino and his sibling, singer/saxophonist Jerry Vivino, is to make O'Brian happy; however, on Blues Band, they sing and play for their own satisfaction. This decent, competent CD, which was recorded in April 2000, is fairly diverse. The Vivino Brothers are, as the album's title says, primarily a blues band, and cuts like "Feedback Out on Highway 101" and Lowell Fulson's "Sinner's Prayer" are gritty examples of urban electric blues. But the siblings detour into other areas, including soul on "Slippin' and Slidin'" and instrumental soul-jazz on Jerry's "Fat Burns," along with interpretations of Curtis Mayfield's "Pusher Man" and Sly & the Family Stone's "Family Affair." The Vivino Brothers don't just give us note-for-note covers of those 1970s R&B classics; instead, they take a hint from improvisers like Charles Earland and Grant Green and really interpret the songs. Brian Charette is the group's organist, and his work is right out of the Jimmy Smith/Jack McDuff/Earland school of organ playing. Blues Band isn't for blues purists, but it's enjoyable if you are the sort of eclectic listener who holds urban blues, R&B, and soul-jazz in equally high regard. ~ Alex Henderson This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

Vivino Brothers discography The title Chitlins Parmigiana is a humorous acknowledgment of the fact that the Vivino Brothers (Jimmy Vivino on guitar, piano, organ, and lead vocals; Jerry Vivino on sax) are Italian-Americans who specialize in music created by African-Americans: urban blues as well as jazz (mostly jazz-funk along with a straight-ahead tune), soul, and funk. You won't hear the Vivino Brothers playing "O Sole Mio," "Come Back to Sorrento," or any other famous Italian songs on this CD; their turf is music that has some connection to the blues. Most of the tunes were written by the Vivino Brothers themselves, including the moody blues/soul number "Soul Revival" and soul-jazz and jazz-funk instrumentals such as "Peanut Boss," "Cornell Knowledge," and "Capetown Fear." Meanwhile, "Jerry Boy Blues" is a dusky post-bop instrumental that features Ronnie Cuber on baritone sax and finds him quoting Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments." Chitlins Parmigiana (which employs Al Kooper on organ) isn't a five-star masterpiece, ...
