REVIEW : Red Morris - “Lady Rose” (2015)

Maurizio Parisi a.k.a. Red Morris is a Brescia-based rock guitarist, who ever since he was a child, he's fascinated by every noise that can sound like a rhythm!! As a teenager he studied classic guitar for four years and later he decided to study electric guitar. He strongly influenced by classic rock bands like Santana, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Cream.

Maurizio states about the new record : "The whole project was born by some of my ideas at a young age but the financials were not good to release the album" and he continues"...The entire album is dedicated to Rosa, my wife".

The sound here is based on Red Morris influences, the classic rock/progressive rock scene, and includes beautiful melodies, great arrangements and, most of all, it captures the feeling of the composer to create music. Yes, Red Morris is not another guitarist who can play thousand of notes in a minute, he is a musician that creates real music. In "Lady Rose", every single track has something different to offer; there are some strong jazzy touches ("mystery"), more straight forward rockers ("golden angel" and "black's eyes") or even some bluesier pinches ("my life blues") that mak the final result an extremely interesting ride through Red Morris world. A ride that every rock fan should try....
