O’s Notes: Monaco survived an artery blockage at the same time his wife, pianist Asako announced they were expecting their first child! That stressful period led Tony to try to reinvent himself musically, not that we (or he) were disappointed with past efforts. Since Tony wanted something new, he tried a different approach for The Definition of Insanity. This resulted in a tremendous amount of variety from the B3-master. The songs range from R&B to rock to Italian to East Indian and even including some vocals by Monaco on “Never Let Me Go”, A Song For You” and “Non Ti Scordare Di Me”. The new approach expands Tony’s audience while not alienating old fans.
