Sheryl Bailey: great funk band captured live, amazing guitar!

Sheryl Bailey

Sheryl Bailey grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as part of a musical family. She started playing the guitar at 13. At first she was primarily interested in rock music and after a few years she heard Wes Montgomery play on the radio and discovered jazz. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she helped to found the college's first LGBT student group. After college, she taught music in Baltimore before moving to New York City in 1988 to further her career as a performer. She released her first album, Little Misunderstood in 1995. It featured musicians George Colligan, Vince Loving, and Chris Battistone.In 2001, Bailey released Reunion of Souls with guitarist Chris Bergson, featuring Ashley Turner and Sunny Jain.  Stewart Mason of Allmusic called one of the tracks "charming" and one "perfectly sweet" but said that the album was "nothing groundbreaking". This was followed by The Power of 3! in 2002 which contained eight tracks all written by Bailey. Allmusic's Rick Anderson said that each track was "a gem" and "more complex than you'd guess at first listen". Overall he said the album was "highly recommended".] Her next album was 2004's Bull's Eye. In 2006, Bailey released her fifth album Live @ the Fat Cat and was a headline act at the Pittsburgh Jazz Festival. Her sixth album, A New Promise, was released by MCG Jazz February 2, 2010.She also teaches at Berklee, and at Stanford University's summer workshops

Scott McGill: Conlon Nancarrow 3rd Study for Player Piano

Nancarrow is best remembered for the pieces he wrote for the player piano. He was one of the first composers to use musical instruments as mechanical machines, making them play far beyond human performance ability. He lived most of his life in relative isolation, not becoming widely known until the 1980s.

Martin Goulding,Steve Woodcock: Linear Sphere - Manvantara

Martin Goulding
I thought it might be useful for you to get a little background on the lead guitarist, the driving force behind the latest Linear Sphere release, Martin Goulding.

Martin Goulding was born in Brighton, UK in 1973. Starting electric guitar at the age of 13, inspired by the Hard-Rock guitar players of the day like Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, Yngwie Malmsteen, George Lynch, Tony Macalpine, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.

At the age of 15, Martin studied with local teacher Robert McChesney for three years, before attending the Guitar Institute of Technology (G.I.T.) in London where he completed a diploma, graduating in 1993. Keen to further his expertise in modern rock techniques and jazz/rock improvisation, Martin went on to study privately with top UK virtuoso, teacher and genuine underground guitar god Shaun Baxter.

Martin Goulding is now a Professional Guitarist/Teacher/Producer based in London, UK and is one of the UK's foremost Modern Rock/Metal guitar instructors, Martin Goulding teaches at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (formerly The Guitar Institute) in North West London, writing the course for Rock Studies.

As well as a sort after clinician and he's been a regular writer for Guitar Techniques magazine and Guitar World magazine. In addition, Martin is an experienced session musician with clients including Chappell Recorded Music Library, Bruton Music, Zomba, Unity and the BBC. 

Martin also writes, engineers and produces for Linear Sphere who released their highly acclaimed debut Reality Dysfunction in 2004 and have just released their second album Manvantara in early 2012.

Linear Sphere: Reality Dysfunction
Linear Sphere: Manvantara

You get get both albums for one great price and there are a limited number of signed copies of the new album for the first hundred ordered.

Featuring Martin Goulding, Nick Lowczowski, Steve Woodcock, Jamie Brooks and Jos Geron, Linear Sphere release their second studio album Manvantara on July 7th 2012. Featuring epic compositions with a unique blend of progressive, experimental, metal and heavy fusion.
Linear Sphere Manvantara Promotion Video

This album comprises six tracks of progressive metal fusion with vocals and a special guest appearance of Paul Darrow of Blakes Seven fame. This a "full on" concept album with forty five minutes of mind expanding, molten metal music and malleable metal guitar solos.

Track Listing
1. Origin
2. Manvantara
3. Cycle of Ages
4. Inner Flame
5. Reset Realign
6. The Dawning

Linear Sphere been forged  from some of UK's finest musicians with Martin Goulding on guitar, Jamie Brooks on keyboard, Steve Woodcock on bass and Chapman stick, Nick Lowczowski on drums and Jos Geron on vocals. The band carve out a melodically rich seam of progressive metal, and no doubt live these guys must excel.

The Concept talks of Atlantis and Lemuria and interestingly enough there are connections with the concepts of Manvantara and the concepts of Prometheus in that the album talks about the golden age of Lemuria, where genetic experiments combine DNA of native earth man with a cosmic race which must be successful to ensure the survival of the species, giving birth to modern man.

The CD comes packed with a booklet containing the lyrics of each song and this is further augmented by on line content which explains the concepts in more detail... now this is a real concept album in every sense of the word. Not only can you listen to the top line music and singing, but you get a chance to read about the lyrical synopsis for each track, indeed I enjoyed looking up references on the web whilst listening to some of the best metal progressive musicianship around.

This is the sort of release that requires in depth listening, the sort I like to have on in the background whilst I'm working. The sort of album that I term a "grower", an album that gets better and better with repeated listening.  There's nothing throw away here, it's been a number of years in the making and no doubt all the better for it. All seems to gel in an appropriate way, it's like someone took the progression of Cynic, mashed it with mega metal melody, and added some the the finest, fluid guitar metal on the planet.  The vocals of  Jos Geron are a darker blend of Warrel Dane, from Nevermore, and a bruising Geoff Tate, formerly of a band called Queensrÿche.

The production is great as well, with Martin Goulding engineering and producing what is a well balanced mix, not too compressed and dense (as tends to be the norm at present) and this has been captured in the final CD mastering by the renowned Alan Douches at WWSM in New York.

If you like your metal in the progressive mould, the sort with tracks weighing in above the five minute mark, but not so complex and dense that you get lost, then this is going to be for you. I also have I've no hesitation in recommending this album to guitar fans too as Martin Goulding is one of the best metal players in the UK right now.

Keith Merrow: Symour Duncan Metal Distortion

The Duncan Distortion is put to the test by metal lord Keith Merrow. Yields high output while retaining clarity. The massive ceramic magnet and hot coil windings deliver tremendous power and raw distorted rock sounds. More aggressive than the SH-5 Duncan Custom.
