Steve Vai: The Bodhi Tree

Steve Vai 'The Bodhi Tree', is now available for download through all major digital music retailers

I was so looking forward to what the next few minutes were going to bring. I buried my head in the sound and slipped into a state of melodic meditation. I literally thought I played only for a few minutes, but it was more than nine! I thought that if I ever wanted to release this track, it would have to be edited. But the other day when looking for a VaiTunes selection, I came across this track and fell back in love with it. The track is close to 20 years old, and I had totally forgotten about it. I had listened back to it only once after I recorded it."
