Make no bones about it, the only thing we musicians loathe more than Karaoke is amateur wannabe singers. With wit and swing, Dave Tull illustrates just how torturous it is to have those with un-amusing amusia and rhythmical afflictions sit in and destroy the vibe. Slicing sarcasm doesnít prevent this trio from making the track attractive. Corey Allen is a master accompanist; his fills spell sophistication. Kevin Axt and Dave lay the groove down effortlessly, displaying their usual art for subtle dynamics. Dave is a natural singer, an instinctual musician, a brilliant writer, and hilarious. How often do we get to chuckle and dig good music at the same time? There are a couple of other cunning cuts on this CD, but donít let Daveís flair for humor fool you, his stratum for penning and performing beautiful, sensitive ballads runs equally as deep. I foresee lots of airplay and admiration to come for Dave Tull. He might even become our new musical mascot.
