Michael Angelo Batio: today is guitar day 6 in Milan

Yes, over a year now since I last saw Daniele Gottardo playing live in concert... well today is Milan's Guitar Day 6.  I have to thank the super guitar supremo Guglielmo Malusardi for helping me with the arrangements. He has been the perfect host including driving me to see Steve Lukather... the man is also a mine of guitar information having 2000 CDs of guitar related material at his disposal... so I guess it is no surprise!  Please try and get to the show in Milan, I would love to see you there!!!

Steve Lukather: JazzOnLive jam band mini review

Well here I am in sunny (ok may be not so sunny) Milan and I get a chance to see Steve Lukather and his jam band in a real live Italian blues club, Jazz On Live . Imagine Ronny Scott's club, with tables and food and good Italian wine, all capped off with a great jam session from Steve and his jamming band. I like this club! This show does not cover tracks from his new release, but follows a more extended jam format of the sort you would see and hear at the Baked Potato in the USA. So classic tracks get a mean work out with Steve coaxing Jeff Beck style wonderment from his instrument but more than fully supported by his guest soloists with include Steve Weingart (incredible keyboard flurries) and the bass and drums like a machine!!! 

get to see this band live, they are amazing!

Steve's got a bad cold but he still puts every amount of effort into his live performance, looking good too having lost some weight after quitting the demon drink and drugs... I for one will be going out to get his new CD.
