Jimmi Accardi and The Action Zone
The Action Zone is headed by guitarist and songwriter Jimmi Accardi. Jimmi has a long list of musical credentials including being lead guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for 80's recording band The Laughing Dogs, studio work with Harry Nilsson, and touring with Chubby Checker and The Monkees. The band includes guitarist and the CD's co-producer Jonathan Lyerly, bassist Steve Sheppard, and drummer Charlie Nickrenz. The basic tracks for this CD were recorded live, with the band together in one room, in order to capture the energy and spontaneity of the group playing together. Many of the guitar solos were also recorded live. Find more about the band, including video and audio at The Action Zone website.
The Action Zone's first studio album! From the gorgeous harmonies of opener Somewhere Guy to the full-out extended rocker Come Back To Me, to the blue-eyed soul of If Only In Our Dreams, we are reminded that good music comes in many forms and styles. This album accomplishes what few releases have in recent times: a memorable journey down a diverse musical road that is filled with delightful surprises. And like any good journey, one wants to repeat repeat it over and over.
