Phi Yaan-Zek, Lalle Larsson: Deeper with the Anima new CD

Lalle LarssonListen to some soundclips from the new eclectic album by Phi Yaan Zek - Deeper With The Anima! This is a totally unique experimental creative mix of Yaan Zek freak out, the album features yours truly on keys and Marco Minnemann on drums. The dance album of the summer maybe?
You can preorder this CD here as part of a special 2 CD package with Dance With The Anima and save £5.W

Deeper with the Anima

With Marco Minnemann (2012)
Marco Minnemann - drums
Lalle Larsson - keyboards
Phi Yaan-Zek - all guitars, bass, additional (easy) keyboards,
percussion & voices

With Special Guests:
Bryan Beller - bass
Ola Olsson - trumpets & flugelhorns
Gary Compton - harmonica
Amandine Ferrari - choral vocals
Tristan D. Rastaflange the Third - double bass
And The Elves Of Richmond Park - additional vocals

And featuring remixes by:
T-Boy, Cafe Del Marlborough & Luke Bedi

Deeper With The Anima is the companion album to Dance With The Anima with the music focusing towards a very dynamic guitar instrumental direction and featuring new and extended pieces based on themes from the original album along with 3 exciting guest remixes. It’s a passionate and very unique journey that takes you from the cinematic jazz with tasteful atmospheric playing of “Mariana’s Deeper Dive” to its opposite polarity in the no-holds-barred dark and intense augmented tribal hypershred insanity of “The Shrine Of The Augmented Weave”! Not to mention along the way there’s a wonderful Piazzolla meets Gotan Project style tango (“Corazones En Fuego”), a beautifully catchy summery drum and bass acoustic fusion tune (“Signposts 2”), a John Coltrane/Pharoah Sanders inspired 4 minute guitar solo (“Love Abounds”), a drum and bass driven Beltway Bandits Zappa-style highly-detailed long-form melody piece (“Melodies Of Me Three”) and many more inspiring groove-orientated tracks.

“I was getting such a creative high composing and recording the music for "Dance With The Anima" that it seemed a shame to finish it there. Being part of Marco Minnemann's Normalizer 2 project, one of the main rules was that the drums could not be edited in any way. This restriction actually provided the impetus for new creative avenues and the music on "Dance…" would not have existed were it not for this musical challenge. However I felt some of the compositions needed another lease of life in an extended form, and so the idea of a companion remix album was born. After having given out some of the tracks to be remixed, and having started the remixing process myself, it became apparent that the creative energy behind the music didn't want to be limited to simply just an album of remixes. New compositions started to grow out of old ones and Marco's drum grooves provided the seed for many new musical ideas. This led to another year of intense recording work to add all the new melodies, grooves and solos to the music, with the guitar now becoming the main focus. The result, although related to "Dance…" in themes, mood and atmosphere, stands in its own right as a separate album with many stunning new performances and its own personal artistic voice. Enjoy the deeper journey…”

Jimmy Herring: Subject To Change Without Notice - new CD and tour

JIMMY HERRING, one of the most sought after American guitarists today, has set the release date of August 21 for his second solo album, Subject To Change Without Notice, through Abstract Logix Records. As the founding member of The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Project Z and Jazz is Dead, in addition to playing with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band, The Grateful Dead to Phil Lesh and Friends, and Bela Fleck, HERRING has made his indelible impact on the music world. He currently serves as the lead guitarist for the very popular American Band, Widespread Panic.
Prior to releasing his first solo outing, Lifeboat, HERRINGs was known for his limitless improvisations, long flowing phrases, and highly charged, yet soulful, lead guitar that drew high praises from a diverse set within the musician community including Chick Corea, John McLaughlin to Dweezil Zappa. Throughout his early career, he plied his skills in multiple musical contexts, ranging from classically song-driven rock to technically demanding jazz fusion.
Now, with the release of his second album, Subject To Change Without Notice, HERRING has compiled eight original songs highlighted by the addition of amazing covers, including the Mahavishnu Orchestra’s “Hope”, George Harrison’s “Within You Without You” and Jimmy McGriff’s “Miss Poopie”. As one of the industry’s top-tier performance and recording guitarists,HERRING has once again illuminated the art form that transcends any categorization.

With HERRING on lead guitar, the album also features such top notch musicians as Neal Fountain, Etienne Mbappe (Bass), Jeff Sipe, Tyler Greenwell (Drums), Matt Slocum (Piano/Keys). In addition, making special guest appearances on the album are Bela Fleck (Banjo), and Bill Evans (Sax) and Nicky Sanders (Violin) from the Steep Canyon Rangers.

Nathan Doyle: solo on Neil Austin's Game Of Thrones

My most recent solo for my very good mate Neil Austin. I really like this one a lot and I'd go as far as saying it's my best solo- why? I feel a good solo needs to tell a story or else its just procrastinating and attracts listeners that couldn't care less about construction just tasteless licks. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed playing and recording it.

Remember if you want to learn it visit for a video lesson and PDF : ) Nathan.

Ayman Mokdad: announces Subatomic Revolution

Hello friends and you tubers,
Here are some clips of the rhythm tracks of my upcoming album Subatomic Revolution.
Before giving you some details on this new album let me share with you a couple of things.
I love "concepts" albums.
On each of my albums I tried to find a concept that gives the binder and the consistency or simply tell the story of it.
"The Scheubi and Nobru Effect " My first album was to honor two friends who have greatly contributed to it.
On this album I covered an instrumental version of a song of one of my favorite bands Def Leppard.
You can purchase the CD on the site Guitareuroshop.
"From 6:00 to 7:00" is an album that was never released on CD.
I left it for a while for free download then I removed it because I considered that some pieces were in need of a little bit more work.
We played several times this album "live" with Bruno Rivoire the bass player and a DVD of of the concerts exist (I'll, by the way, post some of the videos soon on youtube).
Why "From 6:00 to 7:00"? Because usually this is the time I was working and composing music for a while.
On this album, I covered an instrumental version of a song of one of my favorite bands Rush.
"The Travel To Octavia" is my latest album. You can find all information on this album and its history here:
You can get The Travel To Octavia on all mp3 download platforms as well as on Guitareuroshop, itunes and on CD format.
Why the title "Subatomic Revolution" for the new album?
I found this original to describe in music the most elementary particles, the fundamental constituents of the universe.

It's an Instrumental progressive metal album with a taste of blues, funk and fusion...
Much to say and write but not now, later ... Below are the song titles that I plan on this album:
Subatomic Revolution
Spin of the Electron
Muons and the cosmic rays
Super Heavy Tauons
Neutrinos and the continuous spectrum
Quarks up
Quarks Charm
Quarks Top
Album composed by: Ayman
Drumming: Andrew Hopkins
Bass: Markus Fortunato
Rythm and solo guitars: Ayman
Guest guitar and keyboard solos: Coming soon... ;)
Artwork: Theo
