Derek Sherinian: Oceana at Abstractlogix


One of the best albums of recent times, classic rock fusion with keyboard maestro Derek Sherinian backed up by an army of some of the finest players on the planet. Derek Sherinian says he would like to play with Jeff Beck, well this album would be proof enough that he's got the songs for Jeff's fine art guitar work to paint over.... enjoy.

Derek Sherinian (keyboards); Steve Lukather, Tony MacAlpine, Steve Stevens, Joe Bonamassa, Doug Aldrich (guitars); Jimmy Johnson, Tony Franklin (bass); Simon Phillips (drums)

Keyboardist Derek Sherinian is a man out of time. Raised in Santa Cruz, California, the young Sherinian began playing piano at the age of five, then came under the spell of the music of Elton John, along with the early influences of The Beatles and Bob Dylan.

While still a junior in high school his musical talent was such that Derek was offered a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. After three semesters he was introduced to Buddy Miles (Jimi Hendrix's Band Of Gypsys), who was putting together a touring band. After an ultimately impressing audition, he earned his spot.

After leaving Miles, he soon landed a gig with rock legend Alice Cooper. It was during the time with Alice which saw him perform over 250 shows in support of his Trash album, that he was bestowed with the nickname by the legendary shock rocker, 'The Caligula Of The Keyboards.'

After another tour, in 1991 he became offstage keyboardist for hard rockers KISS. However, it was with him joining prog metal superstars Dream Theater that his profile began to rise. More technically challenging musically than anything he had previously been a part of, he was named the band's keyboardist just prior to the tour in support of the album Awake. After spending four years with the band, the relationship ran its course after which he immediately released his first solo record Planet X.

Sherinian has carved out a niche for himself in the progressive metal scene. He has attracted the best players on Earth to his solo album sessions, some of whom include luminaries Al DiMeola, Steve Lukather, Yngwie Malmsteen, Slash, John Petrucci, John Sykes and Zakk Wylde. With Oceana, again an assemblage of some of the most talented players to ever strap on a guitar join Sherinian in the studio. Steve Lukather once again collaborated with the keyboardist for the tracks 'Mulholland,' 'Euphoria' and 'Seven Sins.' Former Planet X guitarist and fusion legend Tony MacAlpine laid down performances for 'Five Elements' and 'Mercury 7'. The one and only Steve Stevens is featured on 'Ghost Runner' and the title track 'Oceana'. Black Country Communion bandmate Joe Bonamassa makes an appearance as well on 'I Heard That,' while Doug Aldrich performs on 'El Camino Diablo'. Jimmy Johnson plays the bass on all tracks outside of 'Ghost Runner' and the title track which features Tony Franklin. Simon Phillips performs all drums on Oceana

Favoring a guitar heavy rock based approach to fusion ala Jeff Beck, itallows energy to come through the recordings, setting him apart from most jazz fusion in the process, making the music appeal to fans of technical heavy metal as well. In addition, touring with several well-known artists, including Billy Idol and the aforementioned Yngwie Malmsteen, Sherinian adapts to ever changing musical genres with ease while always maintaining his signature style. Earlier this year Über producer Kevin Shirley, opened the door for the keyboardist to join Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Joe Bonamassa in the 'Supergroup' Black Country Communion. BCC s debut album has set the stage for Oceana to propel his inspiration in to the mainstream and continue to cement his legacy as being one of the premiere rock keyboardist of today. order

News: Eastwood Guitars introduces the new Airline ’59 1P

Eastwood Guitars introduces the new Airline ’59 1P
The new Airline ’59 1P has just been introduced by Eastwood Guitars and it is going to turn some heads. Eastwood has taken the top selling Airline ’59 model and stripped it down to the bare essentials. If you’re familiar with Airline’s popular 2P and 3P models, the first thing you’ll notice is the row of volume and tone controls, and pickup selector is gone, leaving a clear pathway for power chords or strumming. The new ’59 features a single pickup and volume control that delivers everything from crystal clear roll off tones to full on power crunches, Eastwood has created a rock’n’roll machine.

The Airline ’59 1P is a 25 ½” scale guitar with a bound Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard and block markers bolted-on to a toned chambered Mahogany body with rubber body binding. The TonePros® Locking Bridge and Wilkinson Deluxe hardware offset the clean vintage pin stripped pickguard. The high output Airline Vintage Voice Single Coil is controlled by a quality volume control that delivers a direct single path to your amp with no loss. The Airline ’59 1P is available in black or red and a left hand version is already in the works. It comes with a deluxe custom Airline Hardshell Case.
"There is just something about this guitar that screams out PLAY ME!" said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "The black Airline ’59 1P with the white binding has quickly become my favorite in the Airline lineup, both for its sleek, stylish looks and its incredible tone."
Check out RJ Ronquillo demoing the Airline ’59 1P

Tosin Abasi, Javier Reyes: Animals as Leaders Bristol mini review

Animals as Leaders is an American, Washington, D.C.–based instrumental progressive metal band, formed by guitarist Tosin Abasi in 2007 which now includes guitarist Javier Reyes and drummer Navene Koperweis. The self-titled debut album was released in April 2009 by Prosthetic Records.  Animals as Leaders announced that their new album entitled Weightless would be released on November 8th, 2011 in the US, November 4th in Europe, and November 7th in the UK
  • Tosin Abasi
  • Javier Reyes
  • Navene Koperweis
So what was the show like? Well it was a last minute affair, never enough time to get everything done on time. I got my G+ reminder and remember... hey, I should have got my tickets for the show... but you know what time is and how is slips through your hand like water. So I got a last minute ticket on line. The band are currently touring as a support act, but when you get to the show it's clear that the fans are here to see and hear Tosin Abasi. However for me the complete band are just awesome, you look at them, two guys with eight string guitars, both can play lead, rhythm or bass, in fact do do interchange, but it's clear Tosin is the lead player. The band is underpinned by a top notch drummer, a real find, and this guy adds the propulsive dynamic that makes Animals As Leaders special.  I captured some of the show on lower quality video and android camera, but I highly recommend that is these guys are in your town you go see them play... you will not be disappointed.
