JC Crossfire – When It Comes To The Blues
9 tracks / 36:22

by REX BARTHOLOMEW. Every guitarist remembers their first instrument and how they got it and Joseph Cannizzo is no exception: in 1971 his dad (a New York City sanitation worker) brought home a guitar that somebody had tossed out with the trash!  Joseph was only ten, but he took to it and by the time he was sixteen he was playing clubs around the tri-state area.  By the mid-1980s he was living the dream and traveling around the world with his music. In 1994 JC put together Crossfire, originally a Stevie Ray Vaughn tribute band, which was a cool project that evolved into him creating his own music.  Now based out of the North Miami area, his band’s latest release is When It Comes to the Blues, a righteous set of nine original songs, mostly penned by Cannizzo. He also handles the guitars and vocals and is joined by Tony Calabria on bass and vocals, Bernie Rose on keyboards and vocals, Niles Blaize on harmonica and Guido Marciano behind the drum kit.
