CD Reviews: "Unleashed" - Dave Fields

Monday, March 6, 2017


Dave’s father is a composer, Sammy Fields. Dave grew up in New York City hanging out at his father’s studio. He is a multi-instrumentalist, but started on piano. He graduated from Berklee College of Music. He had a self-produced cd in 2006 that won at the IBC. Along with the many instruments, Dave plays in many styles. The cd is half live, half studio. He covers Goin Down and Hey Joe, and the Star Spangled Banner, so Mr. Obvious says, “He’s a Hendrix fan”. He is using scales beyond the old pentatonic and does trills with vibrato that has a stabbing sound. I don’t want to downplay anything, so let me put it this way. He’s a freaking  Monster on the guitar!


The last track is called L. E. S. Hoedown, the letters represent Lower East Side. Its funny, a hoedown in NYC, but its live and wow can he pick. This cd contains 71 minutes of music. Today cd’s are made with 80 minutes available. Most releases are still on the mindset of albums, which ran from 35 to 45 minutes long. Dave is giving more to his listeners. When I went to find a video to attach featuring Dave, I watched a couple he made to plug the maker of the amps he uses, Redplate. He played Chopin’s Minute Waltz, keep in mind if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a million times, I don’t exaggerate, but he played the Minute Waltz faster than _____________. This space has been provided for you to put some of your own BS in there. My cup runneth over, so its your turn.
