Jude Gold: UK tour dates with Jefferson Starship

Jefferson Starship were created by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner and David Freiberg, a former Jefferson Airplane member and co-founder of the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service. The band, descended from Jefferson Airplane – who performed at Monterey and Woodstock, at Altamont with the Rolling Stones, and shared the bill countless times with Grateful Dead & Janis Joplin, and whose music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism – is set to perform their 2,000th concert since they first soared in 1974 … following the 1972 dissolution of Jefferson Airplane.

2011 proved another remarkable year for the stalwart, iconic band – whose diverse projects and performances included their first ever symphony engagement, broadcast across the U.S. on HDNET … their first foray into opera and electronica with “Blade Runner Against The Empire” extravaganzas, including a performance at Dragon-Con Atlanta – one of the world’s largest sci-fi & comic book conventions … along with their usual plethora of concerts at top shelf venues.

Victor Wooten: Sword & Stone / Words & Tones (2 CD Set)

Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, J.D. Blair, Oteil Burbridge, Kai Eckhardt, Vinny Fodera, Bob Franceschini, Gary Grainger, Rod McGaha, Meshell Ndegeocello, Paul Peterson, Marcus Rojas, Derico Watson, Adam Wooten, Jesse Wooten, Joseph Wooten, Justice Wooten, Kaila Wooten, Roy Wooten (Future Man), Max ZT and more

Legendary bassist and five time GRAMMY winner Victor Wooten returns to the Compass Records family via his Vix Records imprint. Vix Records bows with a simultaneous, two album release, including SWORD AND STONE, an all instrumental affair, and WORDS AND TONES, featuring female vocalists in collaboration with Wooten, with both albums showcasing Wooten's multi-faceted approach to music, performance and songwriting. The albums were produced, engineered and mixed by Wooten and feature him on a variety of fretless, electric and acoustic bass guitars, cello, keyboards, percussion and strings, as well as vocals, with plenty of jaw-dropping bass solos to satisfy those who thrive on Wooten's amazing technical skills.
The dual release concept is a window into Wooten's unique perspective on music and the interconnectivity between all things and all of us. The word play in the titles of the two albums hints at this underlying message (move the s from the end of both WORDS AND TONES and place it in front of each to get SWORD AND STONE.) Wooten elaborates on that theme by including both vocal and instrumental renditions of many of the same songs on the albums, giving the listener at least two ways to experience the compositions. Wooten comments, 'There's something for everyone - music and messages for every age. I wrote about what was on my mind and in my heart. If the listener wants to learn, be entertained, or just casually listen, it's all available on these two CDs. Just figuring out the significance behind the two titles may be enough to make one smile.'
Featured vocalists on WORDS AND TONES include Saundra Williams (Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings) and Divinty Roxx (Beyonce) as well as a collaboration with Me'shell Ndegeocello and a beautiful duet featuring Joey Kibble (Take 6) and Cheryl Morse. SWORD AND STONE is a predictably virtuosic set, with instrumental renditions of many of the songs from WORDS AND TONES enhanced by different arrangements, solos, instrumentation and musicians (Ndegeocello, Kibble, Divinity, The Wooten Bros.).

Scott Henderson,Jeff Berlin,Dennis Chambers: HBC pre Order

PRE-ORDER NOW Scott Henderson/Jeff Berlin/Dennis Chambers: HBC *****Releasing 10/16/2012

Scott Henderson (guitar); Jeff Berlin (bass); Dennis Chambers (drums)
HBC is the new fusion supergroup comprised of three virtuoso musicians: Scott Henderson, Jeff Berlin, and Dennis Chambers who join to together to create one of the most phenomenal trios in the history of jazz-fusion. Rather than jumping into a studio as virtual strangers and winging it like some superstar alliances, HBC hit the road first and refined a repertoire of classic fusion covers in front of thousands of hungry fusion fans. After assembling an impressive collection of road-tested masterpieces, the group, composed of all leaders, decided that it was finally time combine their talents to make this musical statement.
Henderson is one of the most well-known contemporary guitarists in the jazz-fusion genre and he has mesmerized guitar fans around the globe with his masterful phrases and unique style. Guitar fans have enjoyed hearing Scott work with Jean-Luc Ponty, Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, and power fusion trio “Henderson, Smith, and Wooten” with Steve Smith and Victor Wooten. In addition, Scott has churned out an incredible body of work stemming from his other career as founding member of Tribal Tech and as a solo artist, both of which he has toured extensively to support.
Bassist Jeff Berlin is a celebrated solo artist with numerous fusion recordings under his own name, and affiliations with artists such as Al Di Meola, Bill Bruford, Allan Holdsworth, John McLaughlin,and Billy Cobham. Berlin is widely regarded as one of the greatest bassists in the world and is equally adept at playing hardcore, no holds-barred jazzfusion and straight ahead traditional jazz. As a bassist, Berlin’s tone, phrasing, and keen sense of melody are a winning combination that has helped him reach the top of magazine reader’s polls for years.
A formidable, ferocious, and ultra-funky presence behind the kit in such celebrated ensembles as Parliament-Funkadelic, Steely Dan, Santana, and The Brecker Brothers as well as incendiary fusion outfits led by guitarists John Scofield, Steve Khan, Mike Stern, and John McLaughlin, Dennis Chambers is miracle in modern music. A remarkably versatile drummer who has shown limitless ability to swing on a small kit in traditional jazz settings or flaunt his stylistic chops in fusion super sessions, Dennis Chambers is one of the most recorded drummers in the world of jazzfusion.

Bill Berends: Kick start solo album "In My Dreams I Can Fly"

I just ordered my copy...

Hey! I've finished my first solo album of rock guitar instrumentals and I need your help to kickstart the CD into the world!
Launched: Oct 6, 2012
Funding ends: Nov 5, 2012
Remind Me
Bill Berends - In My Dreams I Can Fly

Hey thanks for looking in! My name is Bill Berends and many of you may know me from my band Mastermind, but I'm stepping out on my own here!

I'm really excited about this record! I've worked on it for quite some time now and in some ways I think it may be the best recording I've ever made, but I need YOUR help to get it released. Rather than deal with labels I am going to release it on my own StellarVox label and go directly to the people, but only YOU can make it happen! So I'm asking for a little help from my friends.

The big stuff is already covered... recording, artwork, etc., so the $2,000 I am asking for will cover disc pressing, printing, shipping, postage, and Kickstarter fees, hopefully leaving a little left over for some promotion. I am asking you to help get the CD pressed and in return, I have some cool music for you!
