Hollywood Blvd has a stellar list of guests with 8 originals and 4 covers done only as Raoul & The Big Time can do.  I will chat with Raoul about how he got to this point in his career and what the next step is for he and the band.

Carmen Grillo spent many years with the legendary Tower Of Power and is currently perfoming with Sons Of Champlin.  But Different World is all carmen.  his first solo album, A Different World, released near the end of 2013 is chock full of blues rock with touches of jazz thrown in and Carmen has enlisted many of those he has played alongside over the years to bolster his songs.  

12 tracks, 4 of them instrumental, the labum mixes originals and covers seemlessly.
