AND….AT THE EMBARK SUITE MUSIC SERIES ON JUNE 17TH FOR A DUET WITH MICHAEL GOETS ON BASS – Gallery 982 at 982 Main Street, Peekskill NY
A quirky, fun, jazzy pop song that I wrote (under the influence!) about our fascination, or obsession?, with this wonderful caffeinated beverage. It’s now available to hear or purchase (for 99 cents) on cdBaby. With Adam Weber on drums, Michael Goetz on bass and yours truly on vocals & guitar. If you’d like, feel free to make a comment/review on the site. Give a listen here: Buzzed Out On Coffee
Conigliaro Consort jamming on original tune, “My Soul Is”…caught at the BeanRunner (Chris Parker on Drums, Ray Blue on Sax, Gary Kelly on Bass, Brian Conigliaro on Guitar/Vocals/Harmonica)…Spontaneous good time!
Conigliaro Consort at the BeanRunner last Friday. Had a great time performing to an enthusiastic crowd…strong energy and mixing it up with some originals and other tunes off the new Wheels of Commotion album, with Ray Blue on Sax, Chris Parker on drums and Gary Kelley on bass…nice combination of consort Blues as well. (will post video soon)
Leaving a comment/review on any of these sites would go a long way in increasing the albums online presence. Your continued support and encouragement is appreciated beyond measure!

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.
