Natale, Tony: The Camden Promise

Drummer Tony Natale's heart is surely in the right place. The New Jersey native, now residing in Camden Town, London has recently released his second solo disc titled The Camden Promise, the follow up to Mountain released in 2000. He is also the member of the band Turnhip which I am not familiar with.

Being the veteran musician that he is Natale has worked and played with a number of artists such as John Fogerty, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jaco Pastorius. Natale and his band of players have created some thoughtful music here mostly in the pop rock and bluesy vein.

The disc begins with "What If You Did", a nice enough pop rock number with just a hint of the blues in the guitar work and is followed by "Nobody" a bluesier mid-tempo tune with plaintive vocals. "Your Love Takes Me Home" is one of personal favourites, save for the ending fade out, featuring muted bluesy guitar work and laid back vocals. The searing blues guitar and heavier riffs of "Promiseman" makes for another highlight as the band add a little more guitar muscle as does the edgier "Insanity". The R&B infused "3 Days On The Road" is another tasty little tune with a real catchy rhythm. Perhaps a little bit of the Atlanta Rhythm Section in this one.

Going back to my original statement, Natale seems like a very thoughtful and pleasant guy and I wish him all the best. That's reflected in his latest effort. Good stuff.
