Hey guys,

I've head this idea for a long time to gather some players through
Youtube and get them to play on one track. Luckily I was able to get 3
of my favourite players ever to make this idea become reality. Tom,
Andy and Rick are the most amazing players and people you could
possibly work with! I think you'll love what you're about to see!

Antonello Catanese: ViruTrio Alien Tree new CD

ViruTrio: Alien Tree

Lorenzo Fonda (drums and percussion); Romano Baldassi (bass); Antonello Catanese (guitar)

This is the second album for the ViruTrio. While maintaining the direction of the first CD they are more effective. The soul of rock merges with Latin rhythms and the work of the three musicians make good fusion of "Rock Blues in crossover Latin Funk" defined by themselves. Lorenzo Fonda on the drums and percussion, Romano Baldassi on the bass and Antonello Catanese on the guitar, author of most of the themes, they have an harmony that is reflected in their tracks that are particularly affect by composition and arrangement.

Besides the excellent work by the rhythm section of Lorenzo and Romano resulting in very interesting solos in Big Cake and Cubika a particular note goes to the guitarist, Antonello, which, compared to the first CD, in which especially the guitar sound does not fully exploited his expressiveness and touch, this CD showcases an excellent sound, very particularly that gives the "fullness" to the trio. Waitin 'for the collapse and the blues Fat dogs are illustrative of the sound of this trio. Chrysalis and Seed breaking the trend of the CD by tapping a tours in the ethnic world with the first and in th second with the rarefied image. Well, surely a good job that we hope will continue in this direction by consolidating a trio since its debut a few years ago, and has original music, which is not always obvious, interesting. Advice that we woud give to the group: play live as possible !

News: London Music Show 2010 canned!

This one's a little shocker!!

We are sorry to announce that we’ve made the decision to postpone the 2010 London Music Show until 2011 due to exceptionally tough market conditions.

We’re absolutely determined that the first ever London Music Show will offer the most exciting and interactive music show in the UK and we won’t compromise on this promise. We'll provide details on the 2011 event in due course.

We’d like to thank everyone that has shown their support for the London Music Show. For more details please contact

Anyone who has purchased tickets for this year’s event will of course receive a full refund. SEE, our ticket provider, will be in touch shortly. For further ticket refund information please contact 0871 620 7059.

Chris Down
Event Director, London Music Show

On behalf of Guitarist magazine I can say that it is our intention that the Guitarist Of The Year, Acoustic Guitarist Of The Year and Young Guitarist Of The Year competitions will go ahead in 2010. It’s something we are committed to, entries are flooding in and so we are looking into an alternative venue for the competition. It is likely that the date will change as a result, which will also give us the opportunity to extend the closing date for entries.
It’s something we’re all really looking forward to on the Guitarist team and we hope other players are too.
Please check over the next couple of weeks for updates and developments as they happen.

Best wishes,

Rob Laing, Guitarist magazine
