Review by Kathy Parsons
"The Beachcomber" is a breezy new single from Pete Calandra and Straight Up. The piece was composed by Calandra and he performs on piano (awesome!), keyboards and guitar (not all at the same time!). The track also features Antonio Hart on soprano sax, Tom Barney on bass, and Dennis Mackrel on percussion. Quoting Pete Calandra: "Upbeat and fun, the music is a nod to the soulful sounds of artists like Donny Hathaway, The Crusaders, Bob James and Grover Washington." Warm and effortless with a happy dose of funk, "The Beachcomber" could easily become the anthem for the summer of 2022 (and beyond)!

"The Beachcomber" is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming sites like Spotify. It's sure to bring a smile and get your toes tapping! Highly recommended!
