Review by Kathy Parsons
"Mixed Emotions" is the first single of 2023 by Pete Calandra and Straight Up, and what a joyful musical expression it is! In addition to composing and producing the track, Calandra takes the lead with his soulful piano as well as on keyboards and rhythm guitar. The upbeat Latin-jazz influenced piece also features Tom Barney on bass guitar and Eric Valentine on drums, supporting and driving the effortless groove. Warm with an easy, optimistic energy, this is the perfect music for a cold, rainy afternoon when the spirits could use a boost - or any other time, too, really!

"Mixed Emotions" is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming sites such as Spotify. Don't miss this one!
