Fred Beato To Release His Debut Solo Album
by Ken "K Bo" Biedzynski
We are pleased to announce that our own Fred Beato has just told us that he will be releasing his debut solo album on December 1. The record, entitled Tail Of The Shark, was produced by Fred and mastered at Capitol Records in Hollywood. For this album Fred assembled a terrific band called Fredy Boy to join him which includes such marque players as Tom Croucier, Grammy Winner Raul Pineda, guitar maven Jeff Kollman and, the legendary Joe Porcaro, just to name a few. (In addition to all that, while at Capitol Fred worked with renowned engineer/producer and 23 time Grammy Winner, Al Schmitt, who mixed several of the tracks on the record).
Here on Beato’s Blog we will be running an upcoming feature series on the making of the album as well as features on the musicians performing on it. The record will sport 11 tracks including my favorite, That Old Black Magic.
