Joe DeninzonStratospheerius’ is celebrating the release of its new single, FRAME BY FRAME on all digital media and stores.  

FRAME BY FRAME is a cover of the King Crimson song from their 1981 album, “Discipline.”  Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius’ version is available for the fans on all digital music platforms—stores and streaming media through Melodic Revolution Records.  

Joe says, the song always spoke to him with its simple lyrics and dramatic theme.  Co-written by Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Tony Levin, and Adrian Belew, whose voice, Joe says, “is right in my range and we’ve been playing this live a lot. I also thought I’d inject it with a lot of staccato violins to give it more of an edge and put my own spin on it.”

The recording is produced by Joe Deninzon, engineered by Renaissance’s Rave Tesar, mixed and mastered by Rich Mouser (Spock's Beard, Sons of Appollo, Flying Colors, Neal Morse Band, Pattern Seeking Animals, Trans Atlantic).  It features background vocals by Val Vigoda (star of Off Broadway’s Ernest Shackleton Loves Me), and features Joe and his bandmates: bassist Paul Ranieri, drummer Jason Gianni, and guitarist Michelangelo Quirinale.     

Joe Deninzon has been called “The Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” the group have showcased their “frenzied mélange of progressive rock, jazz fusion and funkabilly” throughout the world.
