Known as a pioneer creator of deep funk among maven record collecting circles in Europe, Joel Ricci has released his signature brand of down-and-dirty 4 track minimalist blues on both sought after labels, Tramp Records in Germany and Rocafort Records in Spain. Also sometimes known as Lucky Brown, Joel helms his Lucky Mystery Now Orchestra band (among many other just-as-raw side groups), projecting a living image of the vastness of the potential of community-based, vernacular, rhythmic music.
