Album review: 'Blck Tee Shirt' 

Aaron Rizzo

"Blck Tee Shirt"

Self-released

Aaronrizzomusic.com

Aaron Rizzo tears into "Gasoline," the opening track of "Blck Tee Shirt," with a guitar that burns hot and brilliant — like Mason Rufner's "Gypsy Blood." While the next track, "3 AM," is a bold move in its reserve and mellow frankness, the energy doesn't let up. Rather it's drawn back inside and let out bit by bit in little fragments of exhaled blue-eyed soul.

Rizzo's track "Jericho" comes careening in with the guitar set at full-slither. The lyrics are a tad cliché here and there, what with the talk of sin and preachers and whatnot, but the guitar ... well, Jesus, it just fucking rocks. "Just One Glass" comes in along with "Tangerine," showcasing more of the man's slow-burn soul and pristine six-string attack. Soul and jazzy finger style abound. Still on "Blck Tee Shirt," and inside Rizzo, beats the heart of a rocker.
