Vince Martell - Endless High
By MuzikMan [05-30-2000]
Artist: Vince Martell
Title: Endless High
Label: Timeless Recordings
Since his days with the Vanilla Fudge Vince Martell has contributed countless years to the music industry as one of the most brilliant and influential guitar players. New life has just been given to his career with a knockout website (linked to the Vanilla Fudge site) and an exciting and electrifying collection of songs called "Endless High."
The CD gets a major kick start with a real rocker called 'Cause I Love You. Vince's guitar breathes fire and makes some twist and turns that will really turn your head. He has the ability to let the bottom fall out of song and wind it right down then bring it all right back with more force and volume the second time around. Changing back and forth from totally rockin' to soft and tender several times in song is difficult thing to do, Vince makes it seem so natural and easy.
The best music in the world is being made by those that have been making it the longest. Normally this is reserved for the blues and jazz genres. Old rockers never die, they just get older, and better in this case.
Martell dishes out a nice mixture of styles ranging from rock to blues. On "The Court Of The Crimson King", John Garner of Sir Lord Baltimore fame renders his deep voice to the fray and transforms the mellow acoustics to a mystical and powerful message. It all leads you to the climax of the story, then Vince plugs back in a rips off some charged up licks again to end the tale with the forcefulness of his primary weapon, his six string. He is like the king in his court orchestrating the kingdom at his beckoned call.
I am certain that this fine release will gain more attention for Martell as a solo artist. The Vanilla Fudge catalog will most certainly benefit from his work. Everyone connected to the artist will feel the ripple of the buzz that will travel like the speed of light through music circles and cyberspace. Vince Martell is back, and he is carrying a gun that's locked and loaded with an itchy finger just waiting to pull the trigger. It's pointed straight at you. Are you ready to rock?
