5.0 out of 5 stars "Synaesthesia (1996) ... Andy Summers ... Times Square Records (2007)", 2 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Synaesthesia (Audio CD)
Times Square Records presents "SYNAESTHESIA" - featuring Andy Summers giving his all on versatility with composing thrown in --- Andy Summers (born Andrew James Somers 31 December 1942) is an English guitarist and composer best known for his work in The Police --- Summers' primary guitars are the Fender Telecaster and Stratocaster when playing rock, and Gibson electric guitars when playing jazz fusion and jazz --- His playing has been influenced by years of jazz and classical music studies, as well as his work in new age, rock, and other musical genres --- He was born in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, England.

Although Andy Summers had been essentially self-taught when he began his professional musical career, he studied classical guitar at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) for four years until 1973 --- Summers continues to make heavy use of the ES-335 which is especially suited to jazz music --- He has also used archtop guitars by noted luthier Robert Benedetto --- For the 2007-2008 Police reunion tour, Summers is once again using the Telecaster and others older guitars that he used on Police albums --- Summers strongly prefers analog effects pedals in both studio and live settings and continues to use widely ranging effects setups
