Greg Howe: new signature amp called Maragold from DV Mark!

Greg Howe

After 2 years we finally did it!
I'm really pumped about my new signature amp called Maragold from DV Mark!

All the qualities of my favorite amps put into one.
Classic British Amp characteristics fundamentally without the slap in the face - very simple - very organic - very immediate/quick response with very comfortable playability - natural compression felt from the output stage - 40 watts, EL34s - extremely warm and thick, yet very focused at the same time.
I'll stop talking...you'll hear it soon enough. — withMarco de Virgiliis and Maragold.

about
Each and every established Jazz artist must at one point of his career record a "Standards" Album. It is an homage to the tradition and a proof of his improvisational accomplishments. For my next CD entitled "Normas" ( Standards in spanish ) I have accepted this challenge. I have taken the titles of famous Jazz Standard compositions , and Translated them into my interpretation of what the Standards of today in Jazz should be. For example a simple John Coltrane Blues entitled Mr.P.C. is now a complex and multi-rhythmical song in a 5/4 meter Clave with the title Señor C.P. !

The ensemble requires the hottest and biggest names in Latin Jazz today mixed up with the tradition of this amazing art form. We have Grammy winning and nominated musicians performing ORIGINAL compositions. Each title is a song, a story and a journey. Improvising over a standard is old fashioned, but setting a new model for which the tradition can grow on is a whole other monster. This CD production will not just be a Bass soloist showing off some chops on his instrument. It is the documented sounds of a musician's pilgrimage through our planet , interpreting it's mysteries with sound.

African Drums, Burning Latin Montunos , Blazing melodies , screaming guitars and Balkan odd meters all in one session ! Performing, working, admiring and developing each other's spiritual traditions.

a new standard - NORMAS !!!!!

John F Klaver: Blues Jam tracks series



John F Klaver Blues  http://www.jamtrackcentral.com/store/jamtracks/john-f-klaver-blues

Introducing John F Klaver to the JTC artist roster with his debut 5 track blues package, 'John F Klaver Blues'. The JTC customer base has been calling for more artists to join the roster who can deliver great traditional blues, so we have been keeping an eye out. When we saw some live performances of John and his band, we just new he was a perfect fit for the demand. We asked James Graydon (one of JTC's backing track writing gurus) to create some extremely jammable blues tracks and then John came over to the JTC studio to do his thing. The results speak for themselves!

John's solos add a superb modern twist to these traditional 12-bar blues jam tracks. He lets his guitar do all the singing, with a great display of breathing, and ability to pick up the pace when required. Throughout the tracks, John's display of bending notes hit all the right spots. This is a guy at the top of his blues game! You will learn a lot from these 5 tracks.

You can learn every single note, using JTC's trusty tab and notation. Also included are the solo tracks, backing tracks, extended jam tracks and video performances.

Check it out!

WHAT YOU GET
5 solo tracks
5 solo backing tracks
5 extended jam tracks
5 video performances

Tom Quayle: New Tom Quayle Project Coming Soon!

New Tom Quayle Project Coming Soon!
Hey guys! Here's a sample from a new project I've been working on really hard recently. I went into Silent City Studios to record 12 backing tracks with the amazing Garry Jackson (Bass) and Dave Walsh (drums). These backing tracks are all full, live performances that were videoed on the day and will be available soon for you guys to jam over. We have put together a whole host of different grooves in multiple keys, with and without changes and in multiple time signatures. All of the grooves are open for soloing and build naturally as we improvised around the main ideas. It's as organic as you can get and really feels as good as playing with a live band. To top it all off I'll be including a sample solo for each track that is fully transcribed and you'll even get a version of each video where you can put your own videoed solo directly into the video (a small amount of video editing knowledge is all that's required!). I'm hoping to have this package out before Christmas

Deluxe Digipak with bronze foil print and 16-page booklet.

CYNIC finally return with their long awaited second full length since their 2007 reunion. ‘Kindly Bent to Free Us’ is at the same time a natural continuation of best-selling album ‘Traced in Air’ (2008) as well as a collection of new ideas incorporating new elements distilled from their musical experiments conducted on the two EPs ‘Re-Traced’ (2010) and ‘Carbon-Based Anatomy’ (2011). The alchemy of frontman Paul Masvidal and rhythmaniacs Sean Reinert and Sean Malone should equally appeal to CYNIC enthusiasts as well as connoisseurs of PORCUPINE TREE, OPETH, THE PINEAPPLE THIEF, KATATONIA, and ULVER.
