  Review
   
  Debut album for Mike Painter Quintet and Viola Road (Sexy Groove Records). Mike released a seminal record for the Hammond sound, featuring soundtrack atmosphere peculiar of the movie star music themes such as “Bullit Theme” of Lalo Schilfrin; it also included mind blowing gems as B.Lynn’s “I am A Good Woman”, a soul classic, and a breathtaking “Light My Fire”, The Doors’s self penned golden hit, jazzed up by Mike & Viola for the definition of “coolness”.
But it’s the original compositions where the band truly come into their own, with the stunning “Lies” and a memorable arrangement of “Not One Drop” with Viola’s vocals breaking out in full swing and power and a black soulful nuance. The record also featured the classy bossa of “Blues In The Night” and the funky soul cut “Surrender” to complete what arguably sounds as a fresh and a very tasteful piece of work
BIO
Mike Painter, composer and musician from Milan, started his career in the early 80’s as an organ player for “Four By Art”, one of the earliest bands from the neo 60’s Italian Mod Scene, and continued well into playing for several units, such as “The Investigators”, “Il Santo” (Sony Music), and “Mr Tokio & The Beats Goes On”, and for the solo project “Mike Painter and The Family Shakers”.
Jimmy Smith, Booker T & The MGs, Jimmy McGriff, Billy Preston are just a few from the array of legends that inspired Mike’s keyboard’s playing, sound and style, so much that he now is a reference point and an icon for the Italian Mod Scene and for the musical genre of spy-movies in the purest 60’s and 70’s moods.
The single “GO UP” off his debut record (distributed by Family Affair), was the soundtrack for the “Kronos shoes” TV commercial (featuring Filippo Nardi from “Le Iene”).
His own instrumental rendition of “”UFO”, inspired by the British Science-Fiction TV series, aroused much attention in the Acid Jazz compilations and other cuts off the “GO UP” project were reissued for Irma Records and RecordKicks.
