Celebrating Release of Career-Spanning Box Set & Musical Memoir

Shows Include Return to Hometown of Long Island, Special PBS Taping
at The Iridium in NY and in Connecticut

_________________________________

May 6, 2014 – New York, NY – Joe Satriani will return to the east coast for three special appearances this June to celebrate the release of both, his career-spanning box set, Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings and his first-ever autobiographical memoir, “Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir” (benbellabooks.com).

The first of these three shows finds Satriani returning to his hometown, playing The Space at Westbury in Long Island on June 7th. This will be Satriani’s first appearance on Long Island in a number of years and the anticipation level is high. The following Monday, in honor of Les Paul’s 99th birthday, Joe and his band will perform a 2-hour concert at the Iridium in NYC, the home of Les Paul’s legendary, weekly performances for many years.  This event will be recorded for a fall 2014 PBS TV Special called “Front & Center”. Lastly, Joe and the band will wrap their brief east coast run with a stop in Ridgefield, CT for a show at The Ridgefield Playhouse.

Following these special engagements, Joe and his band (Marco Minnemann – drums, Bryan Beller – bass and Mike Keneally – keys & guitar) will head to Europe for a number of Festival appearances and other shows ending in late July.

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings, a career-spanning 15-CD library box, including the most comprehensive anthology to date, is also available as a collectible limited edition USB drive, exclusively on satriani.com. The entire collection on the USB will be in 24-bit/96kHz “High-Resolution Audio”. HRA offers Joe’s audiophile fans higher resolution in bandwidth, wider dynamic range, greater detail, and more depth than a conventional CD. The HRA recordings are as close as a fan can get to both the early 1/2″ analog masters and the later high sample rate digital masters. All albums have been re-mastered specifically for HRA delivery by John Cuniberti.

The press response to the career-spanning box set and book have been tremendous with The Hollywood Reporter noting, “Joe Satriani is recognized as one of the greatest guitarists in the world,” while USA Today calls him, “(Satriani)…the raging maestro whose 1987 instrumental Surfing With the Alien won him ax-god status, who channeled every guitarist the Rolling Stones ever had while touring with Mick Jagger in 1988 and who most recently helped classic rock supergroup Chickenfoot race up the charts…”

One of the most influential and respected instrumental rock guitarists to emerge in the past three decades, Joe Satriani is that rare “musician’s musician” who’s crossed over into the mainstream with music that is both sublime and complex, appealing to a wide variety of tastes.

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings presents brand-new digital masters, overseen by Joe Satriani, with each CD packaged in a replica cardboard jacket.  The library collection is housed in a specially designed clamshell box with a booklet filled with photos and memorabilia from across the decades.

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings is the ideal audio accompaniment to “Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir,” Satriani’s autobiography (benbellabooks.com), coming out May 6th.

Legacy Recordings Releasing Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings, A 15 CD Library Box Set, On Tuesday, April 22

Joe Satriani - 15 CD box set - promo pic - 2014

Most Comprehensive Collection Ever from World’s Top Rock Instrumental Guitarist Includes 14 Studio Albums plus New “Added Creations and Bonus Tracks” Compilation

Satriani Inks New Multi-Album Deal with Legacy for Future Recordings

_______________________________

February 6, 2014 – New York, NY – Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings, a 15 CD library box housing the rock guitar virtuoso’s most comprehensive anthology ever, on Tuesday, April 22 (http://smarturl.it/sat_complete_amzn).

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings will also be available as a collectible limited edition USB drive exclusively on satriani.com.

One of the most influential and respected instrumental rock guitarists to emerge in the past three decades, Joe Satriani is that rare “musician’s musician” who’s crossed over into the mainstream with music sublime and complex, appealing to a wide variety of tastes.

A true master of the six-string, Satriani worked as a guitar teacher in his early career, with a number of his students—among them Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Larry LaLonde, David Bryson (Counting Crows), Charlie Hunter and more—achieving their own considerable successes.

While in considerable demand as a sideman throughout his career—he’s toured with Mick Jagger, Deep Purple and many others—Satriani has pursued his own musical vision over the years through a series of instrumental rock albums (many of them Grammy nominated) which chronicle his evolution as an artist and his eloquence as a guitarist.

__________________________

All 14 of Joe Satriani’s landmark studio albums, from Not of This Earth (his 1986 debut) through  Unstoppable Momentum (2013’s masterpiece), are included in the new collection alongside “Added Creations and Bonus Tracks,” a newly-curated anthology disc of rare compositions and performances falling outside the purview of Satriani’s official album canon, and Surfing with the Alien, 1987’s platinum-selling breakout.

“When the good people at Legacy approached me with the idea of a comprehensive box set featuring my studio recordings in their entirety, plus bonus tracks, all re-mastered, I answered with a resounding, ‘YES!,'” said Joe Satriani.  “The only person who could pull this all together logistically and sonically was mastering engineer John Cuniberti. John and I have recorded quite a bit of music together going way back to the early ’80’s. I’ve made more records with John engineering and co-producing than anyone else, so, who better to help me put this box set together the right way? His attention to detail has made this project exciting, illuminating and ultimately awesome sounding. “

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings presents brand-new digital masters, overseen by Joe Satriani, with each CD packaged in a replica cardboard jacket.  The library collection is housed in a specially designed clamshell box with a booklet filled with photos and memorabilia from across the decades.

Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings is the ideal audio accompaniment to “Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir,” Satriani’s autobiography (benbellabooks.com), also coming in April.

__________________________

A tireless performer who draws strength and inspiration from live shows, Satriani is consistently one of the world’s top concert draws.  He is a core member of the rock supergroup Chickenfoot (with Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith) as well as founder of the highly successful G3 tours, each teaming Satriani with a pair of top-flight guitarists with shows often featuring special guest artists and other musical surprises.  A nearly annual event, G3 launched in 1996 with Steve Vai and Eric Johnson and has showcased a wide variety of axemen over the years including Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robert Fripp, John Petrucci, Steve Morse, Neal Schon, Brian May, Billy Gibbons, Steve Lukather and many others.  Most recently, the G3 tour played South America in 2012.

Over his career, Joe Satriani has earned 15 Best Rock Instrumental Performance Grammy nominations alongside Platinum (Surfing With The Alien, Flying in a Blue Dream) and Gold (Surfing With The Alien, Flying in a Blue Dream, The Extremist, Time Machine) certifications for his solo recordings.  He also racked up Gold and Platinum certifications for the DVD Live in San Francisco and 2  G3 DVDs  G3 Live and  Live in Denver.

Satriani is extending his decades-long relationship with Sony Music, signing a new multi-album deal with Legacy for future recordings.

The video features a behind-the-scenes look at the band arriving, setting up and starting the album recording process intercut with a collage of stills from the album cover photo shoot.  Produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC), the album features an amazing array of talented players including Vinnie Colauita (Sting, Jeff Beck) on drums, Chris Chaney (Janes Addiction) on bass and on keyboards, Mike Keneally (Dethklok).  All band members and Satriani are featured in various stages of the sessions.

Fans are encouraged to pre-order Unstoppable Momentum via Sony Music and Satriani’s own website store.  When pre-ordering through the Epic Records store at http://www.myplaydirect.com/joe-satriani fans will be given the chance to bundle new signed copies of the album with exclusive t-shirts and guitar straps. http://www.satriani.com, fans will receive an exclusive, never before seen art book featuring years of drawings, doodles and sketches that Satriani has done over the years.  “Some of my drawings have made their way on to guitars, straps and picks, LP and CD booklets, t-shirts, hats, keychains, etc and even my live stage productions,” explains Satriani.  “This book represents my first effort to finally compile my oddly drawn friends into one place, a wildly colorful portfolio of sorts. A collection of drawings meant to inspire and entertain.”
