CD Review: Madonna's Guitarist, Monte Pittman Sings About "Pain, Love & Destiny"
This past October, Monte Pittman released his second solo album entitled "Pain, Love & Destiny." The sound on this new release flows between acoustic ballads to full-blown rock numbers, and that's just describing the first song, "About You..." His work with Madonna and Adam Lambert has given Pittman a sense of writing a great hook-filled pop song like "Lost" and "The Price of Fear." Not to worry, Pittman does blaze a trail of rock with his guitar on "Close Your Eyes" and the 8-minute epic "Burn Down The Garden." His album closes with the ballad "Predetermined Destiny" which features some beautiful piano from Kelle Rhodes (Randy Rhodes' brother).
Monte Pittman recently performed at the of Blues in Houston, TX on December 1 and will be at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, CA on December 29. Next year he will also release his own signature guitar. For more information on Monte Pittman, please visit his website montepittman.com.
