The Last Fusion Band
Road to Drivetime
Stiff Stuff came off the heels of Eulipian & Havana Fusion, this time Bernie wanted to get down to some serious fusion and created one of the hottest live bands in the Philly area. Collecting all new players, Ralph Liberto on Sax, Rod Brennan on Keys, Rob Paoletti on Guitar, Angel Resto on Bass and Dave Mohn on Drums, Ralph would latter be replaced by Kenny Cervanka on Trumpet from (The Buddy Rich Band). This spirited performance give’s the listener a true insight of the power and versatility of this unit, mixing Miles, Grover & Originals into a cohesive and sometimes going outside the box and improvising sections and solos. But this group of players had the chops to pull it off.
