Bunny Brunel, Scott Henderson: Art 'Spike' Schloemer: TransFUSION

Art 'Spike' Schloemer (Keys); Scott Henderson (Guitar); Dennis Chambers (Drums); Kirk Covington (Drums); Bunny Brunel (Bass); Hadrien Feraud (Bass); Bob Franceschini (Sax)
Art 'Spike' Schloemer ist one of the few musicians who was "born 2 groove". He began his piano studies at the age of six and starting performing professionally throughout Europe after graduating from Conservatory of Music. During his productive career as a pianist, composer, bandleader and educator, Art has performed in many different settings and styles. His versatile approach has allowed him to erase the artificial boundary line between contemporary jazz, rock, electro-funk and world, sounding like himself in all idioms.
His playing, like his compositions...ranges across panoramas of mood and emotion, all colored with the freedom that comes from possessing remarkable facility. His solo album features an all-star roster of guest musicians including Scott Henderson, Dennis Chambers, Kirk Covington, Bunny Brunel, Hadrien Feraud and Bob Franceschini.
Many people asked how would he categorize his music, because it doesn’t really fit into one category. He described it as: "second generation fusion... electrically charged, rhythmically intense euphony with the element of surprise"
