Derringer

 

Great songs (co-written by Cynthia Weil), great players, great performances, hence a great album. The former Ricky Dean Zehringer waxed a jewel of a slab in ’76 with drummer Vinnie Appice and Kenny Aaronson helming the bass chair. Drenched in wooshy effects, Kenny’s slap happy funk motifs fuel “Envy,” while the remainder of the cuts; ballads and rollicking riff rockers - all showcase Aaronson's virtuosity as an ensemble player.
