“Sticky Floor Nightclub,” an introduction to Joe Olnick’s Unique Avant-Jam Fusion. Instrumental, Rock
Listen Only On YouTube
New Album Everywhere on September 6
STICKY FLOOR NIGHTCLUB, the first song from Joe Olnick’s 7th album, IGUANA, is out on YouTube. The instrumental’s funky rock vibe features Joe’s soaring guitar and dirty grooves with a tight rhythm section made up of bassist Jamie Aston and drummer Stew Bradley. The song's ending section gives way to a rowdy crowd in a club, giving a cinematic feel to the musical story unfolding.
Joe is self-releasing IGUANA on September 6. Based in the fusion genre, IGUANA has rock influences, from Talking Heads to Pink Floyd to REM to the Allman Brothers. Comic book artist Ron Good (of the horror series, God-Awful Comics) designed the album art about the story of a misunderstood Iguana named Don, who eventually—after lots of struggles ultimately gets his own hot rock to rest upon! “There are parallels of Don’s life with my own career,” Joe says. “I’m an artist producing original instrumental work, so it’s a struggle at times to get my music out there.” “Meet” Don in the Youtube video!
Joe’s music has a rocking vibe of “avant-jam” and fusion like Medeski, Martin & Wood and New Mastersounds. His previous album DOWNTOWN received unique feedback from a range of journalists. MUSIC STREET JOURNAL called his music “classy.” BURNED OUT BORDERS proclaimed his music great for, “Any fans of hard-hitting, rock-leaned instrumental music with a progressive, experimental backbone.”
In addition to guitar, Joe played sax and bass, plus worked as a recording engineer. In 2012, he released his first CD, and continued self-producing with albums from ambient to jazz/rock genres.
