Sally Tomato has brought together more than 20 amazing Portland musicians to help perform this classic album. The CD will also be released on this evening.
Engineer Dave Friedlander, who has worked with Prince, Pink Martini and many other bands has done an amazing job capturing the true vibe of the album and Sally Tomato has blended a newness to the songs and an excitement about the project that leaves the listener rediscovering these great songs.
Guests include Steve Wilkinson (Wilkinson Blades), Drew Norman (Professor Gall), Paul Masvidal (Cynic), Roger Bueno (The English Beat), Ben Schroeder, Hamilton Sims (Little Beirut), Edwin Paroissien (Little Beirut), Monica Arce, Pete Vercellotti (Wavesauce), Michele “Cookie” Heile (Wavesauce), Chris Rich (The Poseurs), Keelan Arce-Paroissien, SP Clarke, James Faretheewell, and the Valkyrie Choral Ensemble.
Although it is not one of the highest sellers in Zeppelin’s catalogue, Led Zeppelin III is now praised, and touted as representing an important milestone in the band history. It is this album which is widely acknowledged for showing that Led Zeppelin was more than just a conventional rock band and that they could branch out into wider musical territory.
