Anthem ReviewNovember 18, 2015
"Clean, raw, and entirely authentic, there are few greater accolades you can add to Fazio’s work. His partnership with Sayles in terms of song writing and performing is both brilliantly balanced and wonderfully played out, and while ‘Another Way’ is definitely a triumph for Fazio, it’s a strong achievement for Sayles too."

Another Way” is lovingly conceived, played and recorded; a musical gift which comes at the just right time, when we are surrounded by so much cynicism and selfishness. Tony Fazio plays clean, raw and strong without ever showboating. The excellence of his playing is evident throughout this album, while Charlie Sayles adds all of his legendary authenticity that blues lovers have come to appreciate through the years."

Early Morning Blues keeps the momentum of Another Way through a groovy guitar line and back and forth with the drums. Sixties rock and a modern take on the blues make this track work for those that have been listening to the classics as well as more contemporary fare. The ability of Fazio and the rest of the band to create a narrative with the instrumentation is simply unparalleled; the guitar and bass unite here to tell more of a story in five minutes than most acts are able to do in the space of five minutes...
Few albums are able to showcase such a wide array of influences and styles, but this trio is able to lay down their souls with ten tracks.
