Noel Webb – Journey With Me

When you hear Noel Webb, you’re hearing the sound of his soulful, passionate electric violin developed and fused over sizzling textures of hard rock, contemporary jazz, urban spoken word, classical and techno music. In other words, Noel Webb has something to say and it’s clear from his multi-dimensional body of work on Journey With Me. This exciting musical journey is first class and features Noel rocking out on five extended tracks that will keep you mesmerized. Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” is explosive and receives the honor as the CD’s second track.

Noel Webb arranged this iconic track and plays electric violin, strings and percussion alongside Brian Price on guitar, Patrice Jonz on bass, Alzie Ramsey on synths, and Eric McKain on percussion. Webb rocks you back to the path when his violin became his main axe of choice and you might not be able to drag your friends away from this highly charged track. “You Really Need To Grow” is a hybrid of spoken words pumped up with hip hop and rock riffs. Noel co-wrote this song with Marcello de Francisci who also plays acoustic guitar, percussion and strings while Webb’s vocals capture the gut-level momentum that is propelled by the meaty bass sounds of Patrice Jonz and the electric guitar of Brian Price.

“Come Close, I Will Hold You” is yet another great song which spotlights Webb’s amazing talents. Co-arranged with Dennis Moody, this love song is beautiful and digs deep into an intimate realm of Webb’s compositional integrity. The title track is appropriately titled since it encompasses the broad-minded harmony at the CD’s core. Overall, Noel Webb and his band navigate Journey With Me with deeply felt solos and exciting musicality.
