Ben Marcato – Second To None
Ben Marcato and his Mondo Combo have been making jazz, rhythm and blues, and cool jams for 20 years now. Here on this original work from 2012, Second To None, you get the full force of the instrumentals-all full of perfect jazz inflection and bluesy goodness-plus, at 3:46 or so, you get a minute and a half of Ben Marcato’s wonderful vocal.
You can find a boat load of Ben Marcato tunes on his bandcamp.com site and it’s all worth every penny of the $8.88 (or more) that you’d like to donate to their cause. You can find more information on Ben and the band from their web site. Check out this great bit of jazz-blues goodness from a band that has been making smooth grooves for a couple of decades. Pick up some Ben Marcato tunes, and chill to the jams.
