JP Cervoni: joins Willie Basse for The Gypsy Experience

The Gypsy Experience is a very powerful rock band with a foundation from the Band of Gypsy's Era.

The original Band of Gypsy's featured Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles and Billy Cox.
That trio released a self titled live album on Capital Records that is unprecedented
and unrivaled as one of the greatest of all time.
The musicians in The Gypsy Experience are actual players that worked with Buddy Miles and Jimi Hendrix,
so this is more than an average tribute band, it is as the name describes, an experience!
vocals & bass guitar

Basse is a classically trained vocalist from Texas. His roots lie in the blues, having recorded,
toured and lived with Buddy Miles for over three years.


Cervoni, like Buddy Miles is one of the rare, upside-down left-handed guitarists in the world.
He was discovered by Miles in Toronto. He also toured, recorded and wrote songs with Miles.
JP Cervoni appears on the Buddy Miles album, Sneak Attack recorded for Atlantic Records.

Oz Noy: Just how difficult is it to record a Monk tune?

AL: Is it difficult to record a Monk tune with your own style and still stay true to the original Monk recordings?

ON:I think its difficult to put your own stamp in general on someone else's composition, BUT as I said before, Monk's music has something very free to interpitation and for some reason I get most success playing his songs than any other jazz composers. I play a lot of his music and just find my way to be comfortable with it.

Gianluca Ferro: accordo interview

What do you think are the most original aspects of this work of yours?
I think that is an original approach that explore a single topic, but I try to make a very broad overview on the latest styles and progressive metal, then I tried to make this music as much as possible by including some video clips (in one there Guest of Ralph Salati Destrage); last songs and exercises are assembled into small pieces with 'intent to make them more fun! 4) It is striking that you devote to the details is that the tapping alternate picking: Technical far between ... In the first phase of my life I've been a guitar plettratore: I was a fan of Petrucci! Then I approached Allan Holdswoth and tied, but the tapping was always a natural solution for me. So both alternating tapping are part of my luggage. Although the artistic point of view are more solutions "fluidose"!

Mark McGuigan: wins Music Teacher OF The Year Award

Mark McGuigan

Mark is a passionate lover of the guitar. Since picking up the guitar in 1989, he has gained a broad knowledge of theory, techniques and styles. His own tastes in music are eclectic, and include: jazz, rock, metal, fusion, funk, folk, classical, dance, drum 'n' bass and hip hop.

Mark has performed live with the Edinburgh University Footlights, played at the Edinburgh Festival, performed onstage at Edinburgh's Hogmanay Celebrations and is a regular deputy guitarist for the modern ceilidh band Teannaich. Always keen to develop and learn from the masters, Mark has attended workshops with the likes of Guthrie Govan and Paul Gilbert, and has been fortunate enough to meet both Steve Vai and Joe Satriani.

Dedicated to advancing his own skills, technique and creativity, Mark is equally committed to the development of his students. An RGT approved tutor, Mark is able to offer a graded syllabus to his students as a means for them to monitor their progress. In addition to this, he is able to offer specialist tuition in advanced techniques, songwriting and recording.

It has been said that music is the highest form of emotional expression, and if that's true, then there can be no more versatile instrument than the guitar with which to express. Despite being one of the hardest instruments to master, Mark remains as infatuated with the guitar as he was when he first started. His aim is to teach every student, regardless of age or experience, with the same passion that drives his own playing; and, most of all, to make the experience as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

Jerry Garcia: Greatful Dead Volume 1 New 180-Gram Virgin-Vinyl Reissue



History of the Grateful Dead Vol. 1 (Bear's Choice), the Band's

Final Warner Bros. Album, Gets Deluxe Treatment in

New 180-Gram Virgin-Vinyl Reissue on July 10

When the Grateful Dead left Warner Bros. to form their own label in 1973, after six years and eight albums, they delivered their first live "best-of" anthology, HISTORY OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD VOL. 1 (BEAR'S CHOICE). The album, which will be reissued by Audio Fidelity on July 10 on 180-gram virgin vinyl, documents the band's February 13-14, 1970 stand at New York's Fillmore East as recorded by Dead sound manager (and creator of 'Owsley' LSD) Owsley "Bear" Stanley. According to Audio Fidelity President Marshall Blonstein, the new release will be issued in a numbered, limited edition and will be available at both online and brick-and-mortar retail stores.

Like the famed San Francisco band itself, HISTORY OF THE DEAD is unconventional: a 'greatest hits' compilation that's also a live album (the group's fourth). It is also regarded as a memorial album-to Ron "Pigpen" McKiernan, the group's original organist, harmonica player and co-lead vocalist who died just four months before it was released. Not only does Pigpen kick off the album's all-acoustic first side-with a strong reading of Lightnin' Hopkins' salacious blues "Katie Mae"-he also commands Side 2, his vocals driving the full band through the Otis Redding hit "Hard to Handle" and an epic version of Howlin' Wolf's "Smokestack Lightning." The latter two songs were longtime Pigpen features-and fan favorites-of early Dead concerts, with "Hard to Handle" showing up almost 100 times on Dead set lists from 1969 to 1971.

The remainder of the acoustic portion of the album features Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir. The pair follows Pigpen's "Katie Mae" with a version of the oft-covered country/ bluegrass tune "Dark Hollow" and a good-natured take on "Wake Up Little Susie," the Everly Brothers' chart-topper from 1957. Garcia handles both the traditional folk tune "I've Been All Around This World" and the seven-minute "Black Peter." The latter, a Dead standard that was featured in more than 350 of their shows, had first appeared on their 1970 album Workingman's Dead.

HISTORY OF THE DEAD captures the Grateful Dead at what, in hindsight, proved to be a pivotal period in their career. It was the last record to feature the group's 'original' lineup-Jerry Garcia, Pigpen, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart (who joined in 1967)-and the first to fully document the Dead that most later music fans came to know: still capable of dazzling instrumental improvisation, but also dipping deeply into the well of more intimate, traditional folk and blues material. Originally intended as the first in a series of best-of sets taken from Bear's "audio journals," the album reached No. 60 on Billboard's LP chart.

Unlike Audio Fidelity's recent Dead reissues, SHAKEDOWN STREET and BLUES FOR ALLAH, HISTORY OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD VOL. 1 (BEAR'S CHOICE)will be issued as a single-sleeve LP. When the label proposed a gatefold package, the band members asked that the original artwork be kept intact exactly as Bear had prepared the original release to honor him. Bear passed away last year.

Founded in 2002 by Marshall Blonstein, Audio Fidelity specializes in deluxe reissues of classic popular-music recordings for the audiophile and collector markets. The Camarillo, California-based label is best known for its 24-karat Gold CDs and its virgin-vinyl album editions, though it also releases DVD titles. In 2011, Audio Fidelity launched the Target Series of CD and LP reissues as a means of broadening its audience beyond its loyal audiophile base.

Audio Fidelity emerged out of the pioneering DCC Compact Classics label that Blonstein started in 1986, following stints as president of Island Records and co-founder of Ode Records (where he helped make Carole King's Tapestry one of the best-selling albums of all time and built the cult-film franchises The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Cheech & Chong's Up in Smoke).
