The Greater Good is a trio consisting of artists Eugene Ruffolo and Dennis Kolen, both of who have previously published albums on Stockfisch. Joining forces with Shane Alexander, they figure not only as The Greater Good ensemble; with the album of the same name, they now also appear as a trio for the first time on Stockfisch. And that is a sound to behold.
Without much ado and preliminaries, the three musicians meet at the Stockfisch studio in Northeim and give their creativity and expertise free reign.
Et voilà: what has something of the character of a reunion of old friends turns out to be a must-hear, not only for those who know and appreciate the solo productions of Ruffolo and Kolen. Listeners who experience these artists for the first time as The Greater Good will enjoy these ten mellow, yet catchy tracks with their captivating vocal harmonies and intricate, rhythmic guitar work - as one savors the exquisite warmth of an excellent wine that is the perfect blending of first-class ingredients: a finely nuanced, ember glow that warms from within.
Such musical master craftsmanship is what it takes If It's Feeling Fine.
