Severn Records is pleased to release Bullet Proof, the self-produced, previously unreleased work from former Tower of Power guitarist Bruce Conte. Originally pressed in 2000 under the name Rhythm Meets the Blues, this is the debut Blues recording for the veteran guitar player.
After a stint in Las Vegas during the 80’s and a brief retreat into Jazz the following decade, Bruce Conte is back on familiar ground, flexing his soul and funk-drenched skills on Bullet Proof. His playing is polished and refined, devoid of the wearing, over the top histrionics often found in today’s guitar-driven recordings, and the material he’s chosen for Bullet Proof is the perfect showcase for Conte’s tasteful fretwork.
Featuring a host of guest vocalists including Tower Of Power alumni Lenny Williams who sings the title track, plus Bobby Kimball of Toto fame and Gavin Christopher, best known for his work fronting Rufus, Bullet Proof is an exciting and original recording that is sure to please. Place your order today!
"I think Bruce Conte is one of the best
guitarists in the business. (Bullet Proof) fits the current Blues style
while retaining the Funk and R&B sound Bruce is famous for.
"I've listened to Bruce Conte several times, very tasty stuff." Larry Lisk, WMNF, Tampa/St. Petersburg FL
