Mellow, Catchy Tunes! A Must-Hear!
The Greater Good is a trio consisting of artists Eugene Ruffolo and Dennis
Kolen, both of who have previously published albums on Stockfisch. Joining
forces with Shane Alexander, they figure not only as The Greater Good ensemble;
with the album of the same name, they now also appear as a trio for the first
time on Stockfisch. And that is a sound to behold.
Without much ado and preliminaries, the three musicians meet at the Stockfisch
studio in Northeim and give their creativity and expertise free reign.
Et voilą: what has something of the character of a reunion of old friends turns
out to be a must-hear, not only for those who know and appreciate the solo
productions of Ruffolo and Kolen. Listeners who experience these artists for the
first time as The Greater Good will enjoy these ten mellow, yet catchy tracks
with their captivating vocal harmonies and intricate, rhythmic guitar work - as
one savors the exquisite warmth of an excellent wine that is the perfect
blending of first-class ingredients: a finely nuanced, ember glow that warms
Such musical master craftsmanship is what it takes If It's Feeling Fine.
