Ari Joshua: The $1000 Question
by George W. Harris •
The latest single by guitarist Ari Joshua teams him up with drummer Russ Lawton and keyboardist Ray Paczkowski. The tune “The $1000 Question” has an analogue feel to it, featuring a funky swamp guitar riff, a down and dirty back beat and greasy Hammond Keyboard that hums through the Leslie speakers. There’s a casual jam feel to it, unrushed and unpretentious. The song doesn’t overstay its welcome, although it does beg to be taken out for a walk to stretch its legs. Belly up to the bar.
