Larry Coryell: Jazz Guitar Icon To Release New Studio Album “Barefoot Man: Sanpaku”

Jazz Guitar Icon Larry Coryell To Release New Studio Album “Barefoot Man: Sanpaku”

Los Angeles - Much to the excitement of music aficionados worldwide, Jazz guitar icon Larry Coryell, one of the most respected and celebrated guitarists of his generation, offers a brand new album of seven original compositions titled “Barefoot Man: Sanpaku”!

Says Larry, “I was inspired by John Lappen's suggestion that I do a recording similar to one that I did in the 70's that had a lot of energy. Using that as a template I carved out several compositions that I felt would be appropriate. The result was better than I expected; I had a great rhythm section in John Lee and Lee Pierson, and the soloists from Florida, Lynne Arriale and Dan Jordan, played on a world class level. Michael Franklin's production was hands off except for a few relevant suggestions that really helped round out the project.”

In addition to Coryell's signature guitar playing, this album features the talents of award-winning pianist Lynne Arriale, longtime Coryell collaborator John Lee on bass, Dan Jordan on saxophone and flute, and drummer Lee Pierson!

Track List:
1. Sanpaku
2. Back To Russia
3. If Miles Were Here
4. Improv On 97
5. Penultimate
6. Manteca
7. Blue Your Mind

Release date October 14, 2016 – Purple Pyramid Records

Brock Benzel: Strandberg Guitar Competition entry 2016

Hi, I'm Brock! I have been making music any way I can get my hands on for much of my life, and am currently a Junior at The Berklee College of Music. I play guitar in a math rock band called Invalids as well as several other projects ranging from free-jazz to folk-pop. I fell in love with Strandberg 4 or 5 years ago and have since dreamed of representing the company with my playing/touring/recordings. Here's a clip of a solo I wrote for the competition. Good luck to everybody who entered! :)


John McLaughlin, Jimmy Herring: Legendary Guitarist Announces Final US Tour - Revisiting Mahavishnu Orchestra with Jimmy Herring

November - December 2017


(Los Angeles, CA) In a career that spans more than five decades, John McLaughlin has honed a personal vision that transcends all boundaries, becoming one of improvised music’s most influential guitarists, composers, and bandleaders. McLaughlin will be joined by the remarkable Jimmy Herring, who has been in the creative forefront of the thriving American rock-jam band movement for 25 years, for what has been dubbed The Meeting of the Spirits tour. Highlighting this musical adventure will be John McLaughlin revisiting the pioneering music he introduced with his deeply influential, genre-defying Mahavishnu Orchestra. McLaughlin will be backed by his current band, the 4th Dimension – Ranjit Barot (drums), Gary Husband (keyboards, drums), and Etienne M’Bappé (bass) – each an established composer and recording artist in his own right.

McLaughlin strongly feels that this will be his last American performances. He is hoping that all of his friends who have supported him over the years can come out to celebrate this tour with him. After all, it was in America that he met Miles Davis and Tony Williams and played on such trailblazing albums as In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew. America was the true birthplace of the Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Jimmy Herring, best known for his inspired contributions to the Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, The Dead, and others, will be co-headlining each show with his own band. “Herring possesses the heart and soul of a rocker, the chops and harmonic awareness of a jazz artist, and the simpatico personality of a jam-band player,” according to Guitar Player magazine. 2017 also marks the return of Jimmy Herring as a bandleader since touring after his widely acclaimed “Lifeboat” (2008) and “Subject to Change without Notice” (2012).

On The Meeting of the Spirits tour, separate sets by Herring and McLaughlin will be followed by the two joining forces for an expansive closing jam based on classic Mahavishnu Orchestra material. The tour will feature the first extended collaborations between two of world’s foremost improvising guitarists. Expect special surprise guests to be added when available.

“The music of Mahavishnu is part of my personal and musical history, and as such it is inseparable from me,” McLaughlin reflects. “To return to these pieces with the experience I've had for the past 45 years, since the majority of those pieces were played all those years ago, is very exciting.”

Herring adds, “John’s influence on me is far-reaching. When first hearing him, I was struck by the raw emotion and technical prowess he has. If you listen to John long enough, the layers of all the things that make him unique will reveal themselves…Inner Mounting Flame changed my life and the way I heard music. By the time I heard it in 1980, John had long since moved on and recreated himself, as he has done many times throughout his career. It is an honor and a privilege to do this tour with John and the 4th Dimension.”

McLaughlin’s first extensive U.S. tour in seven years, The Meeting of the Spirits also marks his first extended exploration of the Mahavishnu Orchestra material from seminal albums such as Inner Mounting Flame, Birds of Fire, Between Nothingness and Eternity, Visions of the Emerald Beyond and more since the band’s original heyday in the 1970s.

“To play the music of Mahavishnu is not for the faint-hearted,” says McLaughlin, who celebrates his 75th birthday in 2017. “In fact, among the only people I know who have succeeded in interpreting Mahavishnu music are my two all-time favorite guitarists: Jimmy Herring and Jeff Beck. Jimmy is simply a great guitar player, and since we see so eye to eye in music, I know we will have some extraordinary musical experiences touring together.”

Andy Timmons: The Timmonator, Granada Theater, Andy Timmons Band Album

If'n you follow my posts or stumble on them, you know the EXTREME regard I have and have had for Andy and Mike.
Trio of songs from the NEW ATB album, that is just punishingly beautiful.
Been seeing these boyz since around 1992, when I relocated to Dallas. They just keep getting better and more interesting.
This is potent stuff, even for my overall beloved TEXAS guitar-slinging :-)

YOU must buy this album and see this band, this is extremely well-crafted MODERN guitar-driven excellence.
If you like Satch & Vai and Eric Johnson, this is approaching another dimension to me, it has several nuances of classic themes woven into many songs, you can hear them, too cool!

And I don't mean to slight the drummer in the least, it was just difficult to take it all in as a debut, he is OUTSTANDING.
