Guitarist Luca Benedetti - heard regularly at Bar Lunatico with various outfits including Tubby, Jim Campilongo, The Brooklyn Boogaloo Blowout & Moses Patrou - returns with his Trio to celebrate the release of his latest album, We’ll Get There featuring the exceptional rhythm section of bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Tony Mason.!
On We’ll Get There, Luca traverses gritty New Orleans second line grooves, Chicago-style electric blues, vintage R&B, Afrobeat, downtown NYC punk-jazz, vibey soundtrack music, and trad-jazz guitar. It’s a sonic world that conjures the influences of Allen Toussaint, Grant Green, Roy Buchanan, Earl Hooker, James Booker and Ray Price among others. Tying together this vibrant palette of influences is Luca’s command of tones which spans juke-joint rawness, spanky tele twang, and satiny clarity.
