Richie Kotzen, released on November 7, 1995 through Shrapnel Records.
Anyone who can hold thier own with Jeff Berlin is worthy of a listen .
seems to know all the scales that go with the Chords that were aranged
here . Jeff Berlin has been leading groups for years , and is a whole
show by himself .Kotzen compliments Berlins busy playing with his
Holdsworth style chops ,i wonder if they call him Ritchie Holdsworth ,
just to bust his balls.Unison lines between Bass and Guitar on this
level is a rarity. Berlin is an amazing player ,Bissenette is the real
deal as well, he is on many mainstream Jazz recordings .
Ferocious Jazz-Fusion drumming here. Chalk full, complex, incredible,
perfect, crazy prog. Apparently, the drummer is Gregg Bissonette.
Absolutely great! one of the best richie kotzen's instrumental album!richie's playing is as usual fluid and clean and the sound is great!also in this new musical situation richie shows is great feeling and confidence in every genre of music.a must have for all the guitar players!
Awesome guitar, awesome drumming!! This is a must for Kotzen fans!! Some great heavy fusion in this one....Matt Bisonette is the drummer, and this has some of his best drumming, IMHO!! They make a great combo, and I'd like to see them do a project together again!! This is a must cd!!
