West of Flushing, South of Frisco - Supersonic Blues Machine West of Flushing, South of Frisco is a reminder of an era that embraced collaborations, one that shared a vision and shared moments, both good and hard, one that put every ounce of their experiences into it, it's bleeds emotion but is an uplifting and powerful listen. Now that the Supersonic Blues Machine has begun it's journey, there's a lot more to experience from it. It happened in 2012, Texan guitarist-singer-songwriter Lance Lopez was planning a visit to Los Angeles to record a new album and producer Fabrizio Grossi suggested they hook up and work on some ideas. The following whirlwind day and a half in the studio resulted in three songs which became the foundation of an exciting new project before they knew it. "Lance is incredible" Fabrizio asserts "I can show him any melody line I want, but that guy ends up putting his bluesy mark on anything, he was born with the blues. It's so natural for him." With a prolific career as a producer, mixer and bass player Fabrizio has worked with some of the finest musicians around today pulling into an array of eclectic styles, from Steve Vai to Tina Arena, Nina Hagen to Alice Cooper as well as Glenn Hughes, Dave Navarro, George Clinton, Joe Bonamassa, Leslie West, Zakk Wylde, Ice T, Slash and Paul Stanley to name a few. With this huge foundation of friends you are on an ever learning curve and with this a network of contacts brings with it both enhanced abilities and a blossoming reputation. Before Supersonic Blues Machine even existed as it is, the seeds began to be sewn from a hook up with Billy F. Gibbons, "I was telling Billy about my work with Lance" explains Fabrizio before excitedly adding the ZZ Top legends response was "'Oh, you know Lance? He's fantastic, I've known him since he was a little kid'" and he went on to say that the two should seriously consider working on something together. The third part of the core was Indiana native drummer Kenny Aronoff who joined the family next. Kenny started working with Fabrizio a few years back, thanks to a meeting with Toto's Steve Lukather. "I was talking to Steve, who I've known for over 20 years, he was one of my first friends in LA. We wanted to do something fun together and I said to him I always wanted to play with Kenny Aronoff, do you know him? He said 'are you kidding me? Kenny is a very good friend of mine, let's give him a call.'" The pair felt like they had known each other for ever, and Aronoff brought with him the experience of working with a huge collection of artists such as John Mellencamp, Smashing Pumpkins, Meat Loaf, Brandon Flowers, John Fogerty, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Joe Cocker amongst a host of others, and their collaboration started. "I could come up with an idea or demo of a song" he says, "but when you revisit it with him, his insight into the drums and the whole rhythm, it just comes from a higher place and the whole thing takes a different twist." Supersonic Blues Machine isn't just a band; it's a mood, a comradeship, a melting pot of ideas with likeminded people bringing their own unique talents to create something with feeling that is very organic. "I was thinking of all the people we know and thought, how about putting together something like The Who or The Rolling Stones used to do in the early 70s" he adds, "they would put together a record and bring all of their friends on board, I thought that would be cool. Bring back the spirit of camaraderie between musicians."
