Dave Panico – Tasty Treat

Tasty TreatThe album Tasty Treat is produced by Eric Copeland out of Nashville, TN. I met Eric at a music conference several years ago and found out he was a Christian Jazz producer so I ventured with him on this CD Tasty Treat. Tasty Treat Opens up with a song I wrote called “Break’N Free”. This is an upbeat/happy song performed on alto sax. Sometime life and circumstances bring hard attacks and I feel like I’m trapped and can’t get out. This song is about being able to break free and overcome these hardships. The next song is the Title track called “Tasty Treat” . This song is written by Eric Copeland. He provided the track and then I added the melody to it. This is a very nice cool smooth jazz song. It’s one to lay back on and enjoy. I perform soprano and tenor sax on this.

The 3rd song is a blues song called Soaring Sax Blues performed on alto sax. I tend to go by the name “the Soaring Saxman” so the title fits. This is a compilation between myself and eric Copeland. I wanted a blues tune on the album. I tend to hang out at the open jam blues clubs here in KC and I’ve had several compliments that I play some mean kick ass blues. So why not. This is a good ole fashioned blues tune. The 4th song is entitled “Pump’N” performed on alto sax. This is one I wrote and I ventured out on this one. I wanted a dance tune that people will get up and move to. The song Pump’N is a great tune for workouts and getting out on that dance floor. Eric did a nice job on the track.

The 5th song came from a guitar lick I sent Eric. I don’t play guitar but I was fooling around on it and came up with a lick. The song is called “Just Like That”. This is a compilation with Eric Copeland. This is a bit funky and has a cool vibe to it. When I think about how God created the world or how he moves amazingly in someone’s life, he can make it happen , Just Like That. This is performed on alto sax.
“The Search” is the 6th song on the Cd and is the first song I wrote for this CD. During the time I was writing this song, I felt like doors were closing on me on where I could perform/minister. Give this album a listen at CDBaby.
