Dave Fields new CD, All In, will electrify you with its rockin’ blues soul. Never before has the fire and intensity of Dave’s guitar been captured in a recording like it has on this new CD! All In features 11 songs produced by Dave: 9 originals an, a funky ‘live’ version of Led Zep’s “Black Dog” and a burning rendition of the timeless classic “Crossroad.”
All In was recorded mostly live in the studio. It features many of the same musicians on Dave’s first three CD’s, Time’s A Wastin’, All Wound Up and Detonation: Andy Huenerberg (bass), Kenny Soule (drums), Vladimir Barsky (keys), Dave Moore (drums) and some new comers: Tony Tino (bass) and special guest, BMA nominee, Dave Keyes (piano).
There are many different flavors of Dave featured on this CD. The rockin’-fatalistic “Changes In My Life” starts off the CD with a scintillating guitar solo that zooms off into the clouds. Dave blazes away on the spooky-rock “Voodoo Eyes” which will take you to a place where classic rock legends dwell. “Let’s Go Downtown” will get you “boogie-in” your seat while the surreal-lamenting “Dragon Fly” drifts through layers of realities. All In winds down a road that will take you to your limit and then drop you in a place that will make you say, “Oh Yeah!”
Dave grew up in New York City the son of a noted gifted composer arranger producer Sammy “Forever” Fields. From the time Dave was a young child he grew up in his father’s recording studio being exposed to the likes of Sammy Kahn, Rupert Holmes and Stevie Wonder. Being raised by nanny who was from Waycross Georgia, an eclectic dash of southern culture was mixed into Dave’s persona.
