Singer/songwriter’s third CD offers a soulful collection of songs with a perfect touch of groove

Ed Randazzo is a man at ease. Relaxing on the sofa of his stylishly kept apartment on the west side of the Wyoming Valley, he announces with a smile that this is the place where it all happens. This is where he writes songs. A painting of Nina Simone serves as the centerpiece of his living room. A laptop on the coffee table is how he records his demos. And walks around his neighborhood often serve as his muse. It’s all there. And it can all be found on his new CD, If You Don’t Bring Me Joy (Be On Your Way).
The album, Randazzo’s third, is the follow up to 2009’s See That My Grave Is Kept Clean and 2012’s Show and Tell. Like its predecessors, it was produced by Bret Alexander at Saturation Acres Recording Studio. And though its music comes with a distinct blues/pop/roots influence, it combines those elements with a positive vibe. It is his finest work to date.
