New music: Album Neonfire released

Greg Russo's original songs, along with a cover of a lesser-known Dylan tune (If You Gotta Go, Go Now), are realized by musicians connected to the music of Frank Zappa. The result is a CD full of stellar performances and highly melodic songs, with real people playing real instruments - remember those days?

Guests include Candy Zappa (Frank's sister), Nolan Porter (who recorded with members of The Mothers Of Invention just after their breakup), acclaimed mid-'70s Zappa vocalist Napoleon Murphy Brock, '60s surf instrumentalists The Tornadoes, André Cholmondeley (lead and rhythm guitars) and Glenn Leonard (drums) from the noted FZ tribute band Project/Object, drummer Jon Braun from Pennsylvania band The Insidious Rays, violinist extraordinaire Joe Deninzon and trumpeter Dave Ballou.
With Greg Russo on keyboards, his brother Jeff on bass, André Cholmondeley on all guitars and the above musicians on the rest of the album, Neonfire has created a unique sound influenced by music from the '60s to the present.

The CD is available at http://www.crossfirepublications.com, http://www.cdbaby.com and http://www.amazon.com. Downloads are available at all your favorite sites.
