An excerpt from the cdBaby Album Notes by Glenn Berger:
The album features eight terrific original compositions and three fascinating covers that show his multiple influences. For example, one highlight of the album is a haunting, noir reworking of The Kinks song, “Tired of Waiting.” A favorite masterpiece on the record is his deep interpretation of the Miles Davis song made famous by Bill Evans, “Nardis.” Written during Davis’s “modal period,” that influenced his “Spanish” recordings, Conigliaro starts off with a virtuosic improvised acoustic guitar introduction in that style, before the quartet blasts into a stirring rendition to rival the best.
But the real stand outs on the record are Conigliaro’s originals. The title tune, “Wheels of Commotion,” swings easy in counterpoint under its evocative lyrics, which may be commenting all too closely on our current political condition. Another great track, “My Soul Is,” begins with Brian’s deft bluesy harp, and features a no-holds-barred vocal that reaches to the depths of that thing we call our soul. The words speak to that integrity thing – live fully, express who you authentically are, no matter the cost. Congiliaro and his quartet take it all the way on this album. It’s a trip worth going on.
