PACKAGES ON-SALE NOW  AT THE G4 EXPERIENCE

Los Angeles, CA (November 30, 2016) JOE SATRIANI reveals the details for Joe Satriani’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary July 24-28 at Asilomar Center in Carmel, CA. Packages are available at the camp’s official site starting today— http://g4experience.com/

For its fourth installment, the G4 Experience enjoys a game-changing and historic first. The camp will celebrate the writing, recording, and performance of SATRIANI’s seminal GRAMMY Award-nominated, platinum-selling 1987 epic, Surfing with the Alien – one of the most successful instrumental guitar albums ever made. Recognizing the record’s 30th anniversary, campers will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull back the curtain on the album with the visionaries behind the music.

SATRIANI will be joined by longtime co-conspirator and Surfing with the Alien co-producer John Cuniberti in addition to other special guests. His original live band during the record’s tour cycle, Stu Hamm and Jonathan Mover, return for the first time since 1995 for the evening’s performances.

About Joe Satriani’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary, SATRIANI says, “To this day, every fan conversation ends up referencing Surfing with the Alien. We thought the best way to celebrate its 30th birthday would be to devote the 2017 G4 Experience to all things Surfing. It’s such a special moment for me, and I can’t wait to see everyone there so we can relive this album together and create new memories in the process.”

Eight-Time Grammy® Award Winner Jeff Beck’s First New Studio Album
In Six Years Set For Release From Atco On July 15

This Summer, Beck Will Also Release His New Book BECK01, Tour With
Buddy Guy, And Lead A Special Career-Spanning Concert At The Hollywood Bowl

_____________________________

LOS ANGELES – On Jeff Beck’s forthcoming studio album LOUD HAILER, his first in six years, the legendary guitarist combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love. LOUD HAILER will be available on Atco Records, an imprint of Rhino Entertainment, on July 15 on CD ($18.98), LP ($21.98), and digitally.

Loud Hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn’t shy about speaking its mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains: “I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view.” The album’s first single, the riotous rocker “Live In The Dark,” will be unleashed soon.

JeffBeck_LoudHailer Cover - #MO99ILNFSO393

To help him write the 11 tracks on LOUD HAILER, Beck enlisted two fierce young females from London: singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. It was a chance meeting with Vandenberg last year at a birthday party for Queen drummer Roger Taylor that eventually led to the trio’s collaboration. “She invited me to one of their shows, and I was blown away,” the guitarist recalls. “When we got together in January, I explained the subject matter I had in mind, we sat down by the fire with a crate of Prosecco and got right to it. The songs came together very quickly; five in three days.”

Beck produced LOUD HAILER with Filippo Cimatti, who also works with Rosie and Carmen. In addition to the core trio, the album also features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti, who were both recruited by Cimatti.

Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on LOUD HAILER, including the intense album opener “The Revolution Will Be Televised,” the reflective ballad “Scared For The Children,” the funk infused “O.I.L.” and the tranquil album closer “Shrine.” The album is rounded out by two signature Beck instrumentals in “Pull It” and “Edna.”

A few days after the album’s release, Beck will launch a summer tour of the U.S. with blues legend Buddy Guy. And on August 10, Beck, with special guests to be announced shortly, will make his Hollywood Bowl debut for a very special, career-spanning concert that celebrate 50 years of ‘dynamic music making.’ “It will be head teacher Beck in a gown and mortar board in front of the class giving everyone a history lesson,” he jokes. The show will also include an orchestra.

Over the course of Beck’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades. He has twice been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. First, as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992 and then again, as a solo artist, in 2009. Rolling Stone ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned a total of eight Grammy Awards during his long career. In addition, Beck has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger. Throughout his career, Beck routinely makes the fantastically difficult sound effortless.

In addition to recording LOUD HAILER, Beck has been hard at work on his first official book, BECK01 (Genesis Publications, jeffbeckbook.com). Available on July 12, this signed, limited edition book explores Beck’s passions for hot rodding and rock ’n’ roll.

Inspired by the sleek curves, luxurious finish and iconic imagery of the hot rods he builds, BECK01 is hand-bound in leather and aluminum with every book numbered and personally signed by the author, Jeff Beck. The guitarist’s handpicked selection of more than 400 rare and unseen photographs and items of memorabilia is narrated with an original manuscript of nearly 20,000 words, making BECK01 the definitive visual and historical record of the dynamic musician. Included is an eloquent forward by John McLaughlin that begins, “Jeff Beck is my all-time favourite guitarist, what do I say after that?” Indeed.

ATRIA BOOKS SIGNS DEF LEPPARD LEAD GUITARIST PHIL COLLEN FOR MEMOIR

Posted in books, classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, rock guitarists, rock music with tags , , , , on May 15, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Adrenalized - Phil Collen - autobiograpy - promo cover pic - 2015 -#0515MODL

(NEW YORK) – May 15, 2015. Atria Books has acquired North American and audio rights to a memoir by Phil Collen, lead guitarist for rock band Def Leppard for more than 30 years. ADRENALIZED: Life, Def Leppard, and Beyond, written with veteran journalist and author Chris Epting and scheduled for publication on October 27, is the first book written by a member of the group that holds claim to being one of only five rock bands with two original studio albums selling over 10 million copies in the U.S. Featuring personal, never-before-seen photos of Collen and his band mates on stage and off, Adrenalized is a fascinating account of the failures, triumphs, challenges, and rock-hard dedication it takes to make dreams come true.

“It’s fascinating for even me to look back at my life from working in a factory at 16 years old to eventually traveling the world selling over one hundred million records and all the experiences that come with that journey,” Collen says. “I realize that there is a constant evolution of ‘me’ that is still a work in progress even as I continue to be vital and dynamic in my same occupation for the past 35 years well into my late fifties.”

Def Leppard will be touring this summer with Styx and Tesla. The 48-date outing will kick off in Tampa, Fla., on June 23 and will wrap in Jacksonville., on Oct. 17.

The book was acquired by Atria’s Vice President and Editorial Director Peter Borland from Peter McGuigan at Foundry Literary+Media.

Phil Collen is the lead guitarist of the legendary rock band Def Leppard. He has been a vegetarian for thirty-one years, alcohol-free for twenty-eight years, and vegan for over four years, busting the myth of the classic rock star stereotype.

Atria Publishing Group is a division of Simon & Schuster, a part of the CBS Corporation. Simon & Schuster is a global leader in the field of general interest publishing, dedicated to providing the best in fiction and nonfiction for consumers of all ages, across all printed, electronic, and audio formats.

JOE SATRIANI SETS RELEASE OF HIS 15TH STUDIO ALBUM – “SHOCKWAVE SUPERNOVA” ON JULY 24TH

World Tour Begins September 17th in Europe – U.S. Tour Planned Early 2016

“CRYSTAL PLANET” – Satriani’s Sci-Fi Animation Series in the Works

__________________________

(Los Angeles – May 12, 2015) Legendary guitarist, JOE SATRIANI, announces plans to release his 15th solo studio album, Shockwave Supernova, on July 24th, making him one of the first to utilize the new “Friday, Global Release Day” for music.

It would be easy to call Shockwave Supernova a “masterpiece” or “the last word on guitar” from the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer. Satch, however, sees it much more personally. He has consistently advanced the artistry of the instrument; an effort he dedicated himself to on September 18, 1970, the day his idol Jimi Hendrix died.

Recorded late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, CA, Satriani assembled the dynamic trio of world-class musicians who had recently been part of his global tour; renowned keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, a veteran of several Satch outings and recordings; along with drumming whiz Marco Minnemann and bass extraordinaire Bryan Beller. “I couldn’t have asked for a better band to help bring these songs to life,” says Satriani.

The album also sees Satriani once again joining forces co-producer and engineer John Cuniberti. Satch and Cuniberti share production on Shockwave Supernova, as they have on numerous albums – their shared history dates back to the guitar star’s 1986 debut album, Not Of This Earth and its follow-up, the platinum-selling, critically acclaimed, Surfing with the Alien.

Joe Satriani - Shockwave Supernova - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #9733JSMO

Minnemann and Beller handle the bulk of Shockwave Supernova’s rhythmic duties, with the exception of four cuts – the driving “Keep On Movin’,” full of wondrous Satch guitar wizardry and Keneally’s playful piano, “In My Pocket,” a deliciously greasy, souped-up take on Swing, along with “Crazy Joey” (a deliriously effervescent romp) and “Scarborough Stomp” (a relentless upbeat rocker) – find Satriani joined by another powerhouse rhythm section: the esteemed drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (whose work includes the likes of Frank Zappa, Sting, Paul Simon, among others) and Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney (whose resume includes Alanis Morrisette, Celine Dion and Rob Zombie, to name a few).

Recently, during the final performance of his two-year Unstoppable Momentum tour, Satriani had an epiphany; he found himself, “playing the guitar with my teeth an awful lot. I thought, ‘Why are you doing this?’ It’s as if something else, or somebody else, was driving me to do it.” Satriani seized upon this moment of self-realization as the springboard and creative center for his alter ego “Shockwave Supernova,” the outlandish and extroverted ‘performance side’ of the normally shy and reserved guitar virtuoso. With this new persona as partner, Satriani launched his wildly ambitious 15th solo album, Shockwave Supernova.

In a creative and engaging alternative venture, Satriani, a lifelong science fiction fan, has reached out to the future, through the medium of animation. Finally recognizing the on-stage symmetry with his alter ego allowed Satriani to also take a risk on this particular style of storytelling. He says, “Guitarist Ned Evett and I have created an animated series called Crystal Planet. The actual Crystal Planet is our very own Earth, set billions of years in the future. The hero of the show uses music generated by a unique electric guitar to travel through time while the show’s characters struggle to preserve the future and past of humankind.” More information on Crystal Planet and how and where fans will view the series will be coming shortly.

Fans are now able to pre-order the new album with an exclusive signed poster only at satriani.com. Joe will be selecting art for the poster from fan submitted art – check Joe’s FB page for more details (facebook.com/joesatriani). The album is available for pre-order on Amazon (http://smarturl.it/satriani_SS_amzn) and iTunes (http://smarturl.it/satriani_SS_itunes) and will also be available to order as 2 LP 120 gram vinyl.

As was previously announced, Satriani and Steve Vai, will perform at a third benefit concert in support of music industry veteran and their good friend, Cliff Cultreri. “A Benefit for Cliff III” is set for Friday, June 12th at 8pm at Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. This event will feature performances by Satriani and Vai, as well as special guests, Animals As Leaders. In addition, Satriani and Vai, along with other artists, have graciously donated various items to be auctioned at the event. Among these items are autographed guitars as well as a chance to join Satriani’s “G4 Camp” taking place June 28 – July 2 in Cambria, CA.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL AUCTION ITEMS WILL BE AVAILABLE

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT MUSIC INDUSTRY VETERAN AND FRIEND – CLIFF CULTRERI

__________________________

(Los Angeles, CA – March 24, 2015) Legendary guitarists JOE SATRIANI and STEVE VAI announce plans for a third benefit concert in support of music industry veteran and good friend, Cliff Cultreri.

“A Benefit for Cliff III” will take place on Friday, June 12th at 8pm at Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.  This event will feature performances by Satriani and Vai, as well as special guests, Animals As Leaders.

In addition to this extraordinary musical event, Satriani and Vai, along with other artists, have graciously donated various items to be auctioned at the event.  Among these items are autographed guitars as well as a chance to join Satriani’s “G4 Camp” taking place June 28 – July 2  in Cambria, CA and a package to attend Vai’s camp, “Vai Academy 2015 – All About The Guitar” in Vail, CO, August 2-6 as well.

Cliff Cultreri is the A&R executive who ‘discovered’ Satriani and Vai, as well as many other popular recording artists, while working at Relativity Records and Koch Entertainment. Cultreri is suffering from a host of Auto-Immune and Connective-Tissue disorders that are simultaneously attacking his immune system, a 1 in 100 million occurrence that causes severe pain and physical debilitations.  During his years in the industry, Cultreri has served as A&R for a number of top names including Allan Holdsworth, Billy Sheehan & Talas, Peter Frampton, Megadeth, Corrosion Of Conformity, Exodus, Anthrax, Death, Venom, Slash’s Snakepit, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, Modern English, Gene Loves Jezebel, Fat Joe, Common, Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, 3-6 Mafia, KRS1, Beatnuts, C Murder, Kurupt, Soulja Slim, RZA, and many others in all genres of music.

In 2006, Satriani and Vai joined forces for the first Cultreri benefit show and in 2011, came together again for the second.  Through both benefits, the duo have raised money and brought attention to the devastation this disease takes on both the patient and their family.

Satriani and Vai hope to raise even more funds with this year’s benefit to help Cultreri and his family’s financial needs. “I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with my good friends Steve Vai and Animals as Leaders for a night of unforgettable music,” said Satriani.  With Vai adding, “It’s a great privilege to take to the stage with my friends Joe and Tosin (of Animals As Leaders) in support of our dear buddy Cliff.  It’s a great cause and will be a magical evening of guitar extravaganza.”

Reserved tickets start at $45 and are on sale now through ticketmaster.com/.  A limited number of VIP packages, including a meet and greet with Satriani and Vai, are also available.  Doors will be at 7 pm with the show set to begin at 8 pm.

JEFF BECK SIGNS EXCLUSIVE BOOK PUBLISHING DEAL

GENESIS PUBLISHING TO RELEASE LIMITED EDITION BOOK IN LATE 2015

OFFICIAL DOCUMENTARY AND AUTOBIOGRAPHY ALSO IN THE WORKS

_______________________

(Los Angeles) Announced today, the legendary JEFF BECK has signed an exclusive publishing deal with the London-based Genesis Publishing Group. Plans to release a high quality ‘signed, limited-edition’ book are in the works for release in the last quarter of 2015. In addition, BECK is hard at work on an officially sanctioned documentary and is currently penning his own autobiography.

BECK would like his fans to know, that while others may release un-authorized documentaries and biographies, these forthcoming works will be the only authorized versions by BECK himself.

Beck’s career took off in the mid-1960s, after replacing Eric Clapton as lead guitarist for The Yardbirds on the recommendation of his friend Jimmy Page. Over the years, Beck has collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Roger Waters, Les Paul, Jon Bon Jovi, Stanley Clarke, Herbie Hancock and Joss Stone among many others.

Beck has twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once with The Yardbirds in 1992 and once as a solo artist in 2009. He has won numerous Grammy Awards, including two at the 2011 Grammy Award Celebration when he won Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Hammerhead” and Best Pop Instrumental performance for “Nessun Dorma”, both from his last studio album, Emotion & Commotion.

Recently, in London, Beck participated in The Poppy Appeal song “No Man’s Land”, a tribute to the men and women that served in World War I, resulting in 4 performances, culminating in the NFL pre-game entertainment that was broadcast from Wembley Stadium. The song featured singer Joss Stone on vocals and a gospel choir with vocals arranged by Antonia Wilson. In the meantime, a DVD of Beck’s Tokyo concert from April 2014 was released last November and reached #1 on the Billboard DVD chart. For Beck, 2015 will include both solo tour dates as well as co-headlining dates with ZZ Top and will complete work on his new studio album, expected later this year.

Joining Beck on both the solo and double-bill tour are his band: Jimmy Hall on Vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums and Nicolas Meier on guitar

JEFF BECK Announces 2015 Solo Tour Dates; New Studio Album in the Works

Jeff Beck - publicity photo - 2014 - December 1 - #0033

Rescheduled ZZ Top Dates Also Confirmed

(Los Angeles) It was announced today, Jeff Beck will headline a string of solo dates, beginning April 16th with a pair of intimate engagements in Huntington, New York before wrapping up on April 26th in Greensburg, PA.  Beginning April 30th in Cedar Park, TX, Beck and ZZ Top will make-up the rescheduled dates from this past September when the hugely successful double-bill tour was cut short due to an unfortunate injury to ZZ Top bassist, Dusty Hill.

“We’re so glad that Dusty made a full recovery and now, we are looking forward to getting back out there and finish what we started,” stated Beck.

Beck’s career took off in the mid-1960s, after replacing Eric Clapton as lead guitarist for The Yardbirds on the recommendation of his friend Jimmy Page. He played on several of the rock group’s hits, such as “Heart Full of Soul,” “Shapes of Things” and “Over Under Sideways Down.”  Over the years, Beck has collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Roger Waters, Les Paul, Jon Bon Jovi, Stanley Clarke, Herbie Hancock and Joss Stone among many others.

Beck has twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once with The Yardbirds in 1992 and once as a solo artist in 2009. He has won numerous Grammy Awards, including two at the 2011 Grammy Award Celebration when he won Best Rock Instrumental Performance for “Hammerhead” and Best Pop Instrumental performance for “Nessun Dorma”, both from his last studio album, Emotion & Commotion.

Recently, in London, Beck participated in The Poppy Appeal song “No Man’s Land”, a tribute to the men and women that served in World War I, resulting in 4 performances, culminating in the NFL pre-game entertainment that was broadcast from Wembley Stadium. The song featured singer Joss Stone on vocals and a gospel choir with vocals arranged by Antonia Wilson.   In the meantime, a DVD of Beck’s Tokyo concert from April of this year was released on November 25th.  For Beck, 2015 looks to be a banner year.  In addition to both solo and co-headlining dates with ZZ Top, Beck will complete work on his new studio album, expected next year.

Joining Beck on both the solo and double-bill tour are his band – Jimmy Hall on Vocals, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jonathan Joseph on drums and Nicolas Meier on guitar.

Jeff LaBar’s solo debut album, One For The Road, was released back on August 26th, via Rat Pak Records. This is one Hard Rock CD I picked up on its release date and I cannot get enough of it in my system! One For The Road demonstrates the vocal, musical and songwriting talents of Jeff LaBar; from heavy hitting songs as No Strings, Asking For A Beating, One For The Road and Nightmare On My Street to the mellow acoustic instrumentals of Muse and Ode To Page. Hello Or Goodbye is a mid-tempo track, one that is musically and lyrically one of my favorite of favorites on this terrific album. Whoa!

This debut from Jeff LaBar is chock-full of Hard Rock relevance and loaded with juicy slices of how admirable Classic Rock sounds when recorded in present day! The guitar tones of Jeff LaBar are clear as day and darn fun to absorb! Jeff LaBar plays all guitars and bass, with an all-star cast of guest drummers. Cinderella fans rejoice! Classic Rock, 80’s Arena and Hard Rock fans of any generation should dig what Jeff LaBar has created on his debut. I sure have!

I declare this Jeff LaBar debut as A MUST BUY! Jeff LaBar has done good… real good… so good that his debut album landed in the Billboard charts on September 4th! Metal be thy name! Here is the Rockin’ roll-call:

* #130 Billboard Top 200

The AJAY Project Releases New Single “I Am Not the Same”

Posted in metal music, Music, music news, rock guitarists, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

The Ajay Project - promo pic - 2014 - #44074

Coinciding with the New Release is the Free Single “Asian Ritual” on CdBaby

Los Angeles, CA – The AJAY Project just released the follow-up to their first single, “You Made Me”, AJ’s ode of gratitude for his mother.  The new track, “I Am Not the Same”, is a Rock/Metal piece certainly contrasting their last release. This in your face rock jam proves the dynamic and genre bending abilities of The AJAY Project. Download “I Am Not the Same” on iTunes!

The Ajay Project - I am Not The Same - promo cover

“I Am Not the Same” is a song about a dysfunctional relationship that is changing a person for the worse. It’s about that realization and moment in which you discover that you are no longer yourself, and you have warped into someone you despise and no longer recognize. Front-man, Aj Santsagi originally started the song as an instrumental guitar track, but the song took a dramatic turn. Inspired by the vocals of lead singer Vio, who appears on their previous release “You Made Me” singing in Italian, the track took a new direction and a new life with her Progressive Rock vocals. Her passion and distinct direction and dedication towards music, especially Rock/Metal, made her the perfect choice and the idea to create this rock piece was born. With Aj at the helm of the production, the guitar riffs and rolling drums were added creating a dynamic and original production.

The Ajay Project - Asian Ritual - promo cover pic

As a thank you to fans, The AJAY Project is also releasing a new instrumental track called “Asian Ritual” which is now available on CdBaby for free. Slow strings bring you in and with each chord you are transported to a foreign place in a different time. It begins soft and peaceful; if you close your eyes you’d swear you were floating. As the track progresses it intensifies, taking you on a journey.  There is a mesmerizing piano under the strings that carries you throughout the track and percussion crescendos layered throughout. Both tracks were at the hands of the very talented, VJ Thomas, who served as the mixing engineer, co-producer, co-arranger and ultimately an integral part of the tracks development.

Stuck in a place where resources were scarce, the mastermind behind The AJAY Project, Aj Santsagi found it difficult to pursue his dream of music. He is native to India and growing up he wasn’t exposed to the world of music education, but he was fascinated by its potential. As he grew up he became more aware and had more opportunity to follow his passion – and he did just that.

The Ajay Project - promo photo - 2014 - #77710

After earning a degree in engineering to please his parents, Aj moved to Hollywood to pursue his musical aspirations. He has had the opportunity to work with numerous talented musicians as a producer and co-writer. Aj has put in tremendous work toward his goal, and is just starting his journey as an artist in his own right.

The first single, “You Made Me” began as a personal message to his mother, but as it developed he realized that it should be shared with a greater audience. In order to capture the melting pot that is Los Angeles and to pay homage to his hometown, Aj had the song translated into Hindi and several other languages. In addition, Aj had the iTunes proceeds donated to ten select charities around the globe. Aj is not only an extremely talented musician but also a dedicated philanthropist with a heart for people of all demographics.

You don’t want to miss out on the journey that The AJAY Project’s new single will take you on. Be sure to check out “Asian Ritual” for free on CdBaby, “I Am Not The Same” on iTunes and keep up with all things The AJAY Project on their official site: www.theajayproject.com.

MIKE CAMPESE – NEW CD “CHAMELEON” OUT NOW!

Posted in Guitar, Hard Rock, Music, music news, rock albums, rock guitarists, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on June 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Mike Campese - Chameleon - promo cover pic - 2014

The long-awaited eighth studio release from Mike Campese is finally here!

Mike Campese is back with a new solo release, titled Chameleon. This is Mike’s 8th solo Cd, it contains 12 new tracks and it is a little over 60 minutes. This Cd really packs a punch! If you heard Mike’s previous Cd’s you will realize that he has really honed his writing and musicianship. The first track “To the 9’s” is slamming, it’s a blistering tune with incredible melody and alone it is worth the price of the Cd. Not only is Mike a guitar virtuoso, but he does sing on a few tracks on this disc as well.

The title track “Chameleon” has some real nice haunting melodies and some nice lush vocal harmonies. There is some serious shredding on this Cd and plenty of melody as well. With the blistering guitar and the Paganini inspired section in the tune “Raise the Bow” and the multiple meter changes in the song “Pasta and Bananas” that progressive rock fans will love. Mike returns with his blues roots on the tune “She Burnt the House Down”, which has some incredible soaring leads that are in your face and some real nice vocal melodies.

Campese gets funky on this Cd as well, the tunes “Funky Monkey Man” and “Firefly in a Bottle”, feature some pretty awesome funk grooves and some nice vocal lines. If you have been following Mike’s music and career, you will know that Mike is known for his great sense of melody and melodic shredding on the guitar. A perfect example of this is the tune “Flashback”, this beautiful ballad was inspired when Mike was living in Hollywood and attending Mi. “Vegas”(playing the slots) is probably one of the most unique tunes on the Cd. When you are listening to this song, you will think you are in Vegas playing a slot machine. Now lets cross the Pacific Ocean, the Hawaiian volcano inspired tune “Kilauea” erupts with some incredible guitar lines with some in your face guitars.

For the first time on any Mike Campese Cd, Mike has a very special guest, his friend and guitar legend, Vernon Reid of Living Colour. Mike and Vernon are trading off with some crazy solos at the end of the jazzy tune “Do it for the Cats” Mike is a very versatile guitarist and on each Cd he incorporates a little jazz and other styles in his music, which makes him known as a musical Chameleon. The last tune “Meant to Be” is another jazzy tune with a great groove and some very catchy melodies. Mike Campese fans are going to love this Cd and it is the one they have been waiting for.

_________________________________

CHAMELEON embodies the entire essence and culmination of Mike’s years of experience as a composer, guitarist, songwriter and of course includes plenty of serious guitar shredding.

Mike’s upcoming Italy Clinics, Melodic Shred Lessons and hard-hitting progressive rock Music can be seen, heard and PURCHASED NOW here at his Official Website: http://www.mikecampese.com

Joe Satriani Live - photo credit Jon Luini

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 - 15 CD box set - promo pic - 2014

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.
