On Beale Street in Memphis, they well  know guitarist Joe Restivo and Joe knows the city's blues and soul perfectly. BB King or Bobby Bland and all those stars that defined the Memphis Sound during the fifties catapulted The Love Light Orchestra. Neither is John Nemeth a newcomer, in the city since 2014 and where he established himself as the best contemporary soul singer in the purest style of Al Green and Percy Mayfield's old school. Joe and John, together with the saxophonist Marc Franklin, matured the idea of ​​thoroughly tracing all this rich musical legacy and this orchestra emerged from nowhere. All the musicians that make it up are superlative instrumentalists completely dedicated to revitalizing sounds that shaped one of the most genuine and transcendent musical forms of the second half of the twentieth century. "Leave The Light On" is a highly and effectively planned musical exercise with the aim of putting at the top the legacy of all those musicians who, from the city of Memphis, built a sound that ended up being decisive not only for soul and blues but produced a charismatic influence for future innovators through funk, rap, or hip-hop, and this album is an obvious example. A work as unexpected as essential.
