Alberto Rigoni: Rebirth release date announced

ALBERTO RIGONI - Rebirth (Release date May 24, 2011)
A new solo album by Alberto Rigoni, Italian composer & bass player of TwinSpirits, Rebirth shows an extreme variety of music that remains memorable, even catchy with a union of experimental melody, rock-prog-fusion with sometimes heavy and sometimes ambient rock creating a poetic mix that is free of a defined genre. Included on the album credits, are some very well known names! Boasting contributions from, Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree / King Krimson), John Macaluso (Ark/ LaBrie/Malmsteen/TNT), Michael Manring and Yves Carbonne, and several others great players from DGM, Astra, Twinspirits and more.

Video Directed by Iride Video

Alberto Rigoni is an italian bass player and composer who's rapidly gaining audience in the international music scene thanks to his modern and fresh sound, far away from any well known music cliché.
Besides his solo career, Alberto is also known as member and bass player of the progressive metal band TwinSpirits and founder of the new pop electro duo Lady & the BASS.

Born in Montebelluna (Treviso, Italy) in 1981, bass player Alberto Rigoni founded, together with drummer Enrico Buttol, a well-known progressive-metal cover band, "Ascra", performing mainly songs by Dream Theater. In 2003 he joined the emerging band "Twinspirits" (progressive rock metal), led by Daniele Liverani (Genius Rock Opera, Khymera, ex-Empty Tremor). The band's debut album "The Music That Will Heal The World" was released worldwide in 2007 by Finnish label Lion Music and received remarkable feedback. Besides Twinspirits, Rigoni followed a very personal artistic way, composing a solo album entitled "Something Different", released by Lion Music on February 15th 2008 with worldwide distribution. At the same time Alberto shot a video of his hit song "BASSex" (working with Italian company "Solingo Visual Arts") directed by Elia Cristofoli. The video was broadcast on some television networks such as RockTV.

Alberto Rigoni uses Elrick Bass, Aguilar Amplification, Ernie Ball strings, HipShot, Evidence Audio Cables, Sonuus, Peterson Tuners, Comfort Strapp.

Levi Clay: Michael Jackson - Thriller transcriptions

Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982)

This record really needs no introduction, selling over 120 million copies worldwide since its release in 1982, yes, the biggest selling album of all time. This was the record that really cemented Jackson as the king of pop (of course, as his 6th album, this was already common knowledge), produced by the legendary Quincy Jones, the album has the quintessential 80's pop sound; funky guitar work, disco grooves, synthesizers and memorable basslines.

I just want to put now, there is no malice, or copyright infringement intended here. This page is for the use of the aspiring guitarist and student of music. My hope is that by using these transcriptions you can dig a little deeper into pop guitar and arrangement. Don't stop here, keep exploring, never stop learning.

Gianni Rojatti: Get Ready to Rock new album review

The album's subtle sense of flow is neatly wrapped up by the almost imperceptible segue into the closing 'Tremendous'. This perfectly titled outro is another rigorously edited 3 minute 33 seconds of out of this world soling.

Gianni 'Jana' Rojatti has the chops of a top fusion player, but his music has heart, emotion, humour and is contextualised by essential band interplay. I unreservedly urge you to check out 'Metallo Beat' as the crossover from prog to metal and fusion never sounded better.
