Pat Girondi is taking a look at an under-discussed issue with the bluesy tones of ‘Just Another Tuesday’. Through the grooving tones of the single, he draws inspiration from people living with orphan diseases which are those that are not profitable for governments to treat and research. With irresistible blues and jazz elements, the single will have you hooked to his sound while really thinking about those living with these conditions.
Helping Girondi bring awareness to these diseases are Enzo Matera (guitar), Marco Abbattista (bass), Nanno Teot (trumpet), Michele Ciccimarra (drums), Giuliano Scavetta (keyboard), Giuseppe Lapiscopia (sax) and Mino Lionetti (harmonica). While Girondi has been immersed in the music industry for years, he is also a jack-of-all-trades with his company looking to cure Sickle Cell Disease and Thalassemia. With the Orphan’s Dream band, he has focused on bringing awareness to other illnesses and they have been featured in the film Focaccia Blues.
‘Just Another Tuesday’ hits you with a classic blues vibe from the opening tones. This builds up in the melody for a more jazzy feeling. There is a lazy almost hazy feeling to the music that makes you want to close your eyes and sway to it. This is a real testament to classic blues and jazz of the past that you don’t get to hear that often. Throughout the track, you get a hit from all the instruments while the piano solo that rocks its way through your senses is amazing. You can just imagine Scavetta playing the with the rest of the band around and Girondi crooning into the mic.
As you ride the bluesy waves of the music, Girondi’s vocals slide into your ears. With murmurs and calling out, he draws you into the story of someone suffering from an orphan disease. There is a wonderful storytelling vibe to the lyrics that paint a clear picture that is so easy to connect with. There is a subtlety to the hook in the vocals that you don’t notice until you are so far under Girondi’s spell that there is no way out. You can listen to this song again and again at any time of the day and still enjoy it like it is the first time you are hearing it.
