“A Bigger Tomorrow” is a compilation of methods, themes, and styles that approach from every direction yet collide and fuse at the core into a unified masterpiece. Tapping directly into the worldwide Hammond community, Paolo invited over 20 guests to the table, all accepted, underscoring the collaborative instinct and adding a rich and varied texture of vocals, guitar and percussion to an already established Hammond B3 maestro.
“A Bigger Tomorrow” features a powerful international cast of the best that jazz, funk, soul, groove, lounge, and beat have to offer: featuring members from New Mastersounds, Diplomats of Solid Sound, Montefiori Cocktail, Phat Fred, Cucumber, Speaklow, Nick Rossi Set and many more.
“A Bigger Tomorrow” was born from an organ trio project that was to pay a simple homage to those that inspired Apollo to pursue a career as a musician: Charles Earland, Jack McDuff and Horace Silver among them. The “Applecore” session was scheduled for a late 2006 debut but Apollo does not sit quietly, and soon began reinterpreting those songs and adding new ones to the lineup.
This new Deluxe Edition of the album, along with a new digital master, features 6 bonus tracks never released before on digital download, taken from the original bonus disc “Building A Bigger Tomorrow”, printed in a limited run of 1000 copies back in 2007.
