1.Royal Street Orchestra feat. Harrisen Larner-Main - Johnny Boy
This album is a very special one: It´s Henrik Freischlader´s loving tribute to Gary Moore, and it involves a stellar, international cast of guest musicians, including the “elder statesmen” of the Blues, organist Vic Martin and bassist Pete Rees, who both were members of Gary Moore´s band for years.
For me personally it is very special for many reasons: I also used to listen to Gary Moore a lot when I was a little kid already, and after being friends with Henrik since 2003 and playing bass with Henrik Freischlader Band occasionally since 2008, it´s the first Henrik Freischlader recording to which I was invited to contribute.
Even more beautiful, Henrik invited not just myself, but also the Royal Street Orchestra to arrange and perform Gary´s beautiful ballad “Johnny Boy”. A really emotional and special album, which I recommend for listening to all lovers of great music.
