Time is the Enemy

Time is the Enemy

Orginially recorded in 1997 at live performances around the globe, this record takes the listener to a timeless space with electronically charged heavy musical particles. The late Shawn Lane, explodes on this record with stellar pyrotechnics and unmatched musical vocabulary, Jonas Hellborg, the master of groove, slaps and thumps in unision and the unbelievable, unmatched Jeff Sipe on drums reminds... »

Temporal Analogues of Paradise

Temporal Analogues of Paradise

This is an album where no words can describe its acheivement or importance. All three musicians recorded this album live with no preconceived notions or arrangements. The interplay is just right, Shawn Lane is at his very best, so is Hellborg and Sipe. One of our favorite albums of this lifetime . It just might take you to paradise so be ready. »

Icon

Icon

Jonas Hellborg’s new album ICON is his best effort to date in bridging the musical worlds of South Indian Carnatic music and the progressive rock jazz elements of the western world. Not since the legendary fusion group of the seventies, Shakti, has any musican created such an impact. Featured on the cd is guitar virtuoso from Memphis, Shawn Lane, and the three Vinayakram Brothers, sons of le... »

Good People in Times of Evil

Good People in Times of Evil

This album has now been out for a couple of years but for those of you who have not heard it yet and you like the fusion sound of East and West music, this should be in your list. The compositions are exceptional, with fluid carnatic sounding lines and chord progressions by both Shawn Lane and Jonas Hellborg. V Selvaganesh, who is an integral member of Remember Shakti group is absolutely phenomena... »

Paris

Paris

Paris opens with the massive figure of guitarist Shawn Lane seated on a stool. He is dressed in all black. He is further hidden behind a beard, a beret and sunglasses. A cigarette hangs from his mouth. Its ashes have dropped away and gathered about in little clumps on his shirt. Below him and to his right is a phalanx of pedals, buttons and machines. His guitar appears quite small pressed up again... »

Facing East

Facing East

In this follow up recording, John Wuddenhorst (basuri flute) again teams up with Facing East, including Subash Chandran, Ganesh Kumar, Steve Zerlin and Jorge Zamorano, to blend his own visions of Western and Eastern styles. When listening you will easily hear the influences of Shakti and John McLaughlin, as track number three is even dedicated to John. The compositions on the recording are all ori... »

West Coast Groove

West Coast Groove

A legend in the LA recording studio world, Greg returns in 2004 with another defining record featuring Mike Landau, Vinnie Colauita and Luis Conte. This album is about mining the groove. Heavy electronic keyboard wizardy augmented with in-the-pocket bass lines by Abe Laboriel Sr. and his son Abe Laboriel Jr. on drums accomplishes the task. Check it out! »

Gongzilla

East Village Sessions

Fans of Gongzilla have been waiting for this record for a long time and it certainly won’t dissapoint them.

Joining them on the the track called The News is guitarist David Fiuczynski. The album is a great amalgamation of progressive rock and ... »

Chris Poland

Ohm

I first heard the name Chris Poland somewhere on the Shawn Lane forum. Most notably, Chris played with the metal band Megadeth in the eighties and moved on to a solo career in the early nineties. OHM, Chris’s latest project seemingly has returned him to his fusion roots. Together with bassist Robert Pagliari and drummer David Eagle this power trio cranked out an outstanding CD that gracefull... »

En Route

En Route

WOW!! John Scofield’s latest effort is one of the best to date. Recorded Live in Blue Note, NYC, December 2003, John Scofield creates an interplay of high quality jazz with drumming great Bill Stewart and legendary bassist Steve Swallow. The first track ‘Wee’ starts off with a busy yet unconventional melody of John Scofield where he just goes at it. The record is very different f... »
