DAVE MULLEN & BUTTA CD RELEASE ‘MAHONEY’S WAY’ DUE OCT 1, 2007
From the label that brought you Brian Jackson's "Gotta Play", Roberts Music Group (a division of Buck n Run Entertainment Inc.), has launched, for special re-release, the CD entitled "Mahoney's Way" by Boston's own Dave Mullen & Butta. "Mahoney's Way" which was originally available in May of 2006, is the brainchild of Dave Mullen (AKA "Mahoney), saxophonist, composer and producer. Dave truly is a unique voice on his instrument, blending a long lineage of players into a vital and original style. The debut release of Dave Mullen & Butta fuses a wide margin of what we call contemporary jazz. From sultry ballads to jazz/funk grooves, timely vocal tunes, and gospel infused throw downs, the album works on many levels. The CD features such musical heavyweights as Nile Rodgers, Marc Ribot, Mark Egan and Victor Jones. He continues to push the envelope with his unique musical vision, which is apparent on this new release.
