Alex Martinho: Universo Em Mim new CD

Tao Longe (3:55)
Porcelana (4:35)
Metades (5:01)
Caminhos (4:17)
Saudade (3:39)

Offering nine instrumental tracks and two vocal numbers, Universo Em Mim delivers some outstanding shredded, high tech hard rock from Brazilian guitarist Alex Martinho. Martinho has a recognizable style that he uses to great effect on the mostly instrumental disc, using knowledge acquired at the Guitar Institute of Technolgy in Hollywood to create a work still sought out by savvy hard rock fans. Real drums (Rodrigo Martinho) and s team of six bass players gives Martinho room to blaze and splay legato lines all over tracks such as "Revolucao Interna" and "Alma". Pick this one up on disc while you still have the chance.

The CD was made in one of the most active times in Jopi's career, as he juggles important tours, endorsements and recordings. As always, the versatility as in styles as in sounds is present all over the CD, remeniscent in places of Michael Lee Firkins's self-titled Shrapnel debut, as well as some of Johnny A's more recent output on Favored Nations. Moments is a top to bottom K.O., as Spain's groove meister raises the bar yet again.

Renaud Louis-Servais: Iluna new CD

  1. Part 1 Theme d'Iluna (6:43)

Renaud Louis-Servais was born in France in 1972. Thanks to his father, a classic guitar player, he started playing the guitar at the age of 8. Growing older, he played many gigs in Paris clubs with rock cover bands, and progressively his musical influences became many and varied (metal, jazz, fusion, prog-rock). Listening to guitar players such as John Mc Laughlin, Pat Metheny, Scott Henderson, Frank Gambale or Allan Holdsworth helped him build his own guitar-playing style. He created the fusion band ILUNA in 2000 where he met Alain Bidot-Naude (drums) and Henri Dorina (bass). The band was semi-finalist in 2008 and 2009 in ISC (International Songwriting Competition) with three of their tunes : "Theme d'iluna", "Euria" and "Gimmick". In 2010, Franck Guicherd (keyboards/trumpet) joined the band, which became the Renaud Louis-Servais Group. In 2011, the first album Iluna was recorded and mixed by Steve Prestage (Peter Gabriel, Gino Vannelli, Garry Moore) and released.
