By Mr. H VINE VOICE on 6 Sept. 2011
Format: Audio CD
The profile of keyboard player Derek Sherinian is probably at an all-time high, what with his membership of rock supergroup Black Country Communion. Their two albums have charted across the globe, and there's a live DVD on the way, so what better time than to punt out a new solo album. And, wise man that he is, that's exactly what he's done. Of course, even with his Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen pedigree, there's no guarantee that an instrumental keyboard album will get the punters excited. No, what you need are some top notch guest guitarists to add their widdle, where appropriate.

So, say hello to Tony Macalpine ('Five Elements', 'Mercury 7'), Toto guitarist Steve Lukather ('Mulholland', 'Euphoria', 'Seven Sins'), ex Billy Idol bandmate, Steve Stevens ('Ghost Runner', 'Oceana',), Whitesnake man, Doug Aldrich ('El Camino Diablo') and Black Country Communion compadre Joe Bonamassa ('I Heard That'). So that's the guitar fans sorted out. Now, what about some tunes.

Well, you won't be surprised to learn that it leans towards fusion and progressive rock, because that's where the musos go when they want to show off to everyone. And, to be fair, he's got plenty to show off about as the opening number, 'Five Elements', amply demonstrates, with some phenomenal percussive work from drumming legend Simon Phillips, who plays on the entire album, in fine style. If you're looking for some fine fusion, then the Steve Lukather tracks are your best bet, with the mellower 'Euphoria' the best of them.

My particular favourite was the stompingly enjoyable `El Camino Diablo` which gives Whitesnake man Doug Aldrich plenty of time to demonstrate his technical abilities away from Sir David Coverdale.

This album is a piece of beauty. After the inconsistent Molecular Heinosity, Derek Sherinian managed to record an album, which has a lot more coherence to it. I'd say probably influenced by the experience in Black Country Communion - a band Derek was a member of, not just a touring guest - Oceana really has that collaborative imprint. The other plus of this album is the return of some of the greatest musicians that Derek has worked with (Tony MacAlpine, Steve Lukather, Steve Stevens) and the inclusion of his latest guitar friend from BCC (Joe Bonamassa). On bass the two masters from some of Derek's previous solo albums return - the incredible Jimmy Johnson and the smooth Tony Franklin. All tracks feature the amazing Simon Phillips on drums.

Derek has recorded another track which for me is track of the year - Mulholland (previously I said it about Phantom Shuffle from his album Blood of the Snake). This song has a beautiful simplicity to it, it's really memorable and accessible, yet it's multi-layered and really interesting.

I agree with everything Mr H says, but I thought I would add my two penneth as a life long Jazz Rock and Fusion fan.

Sadly the recent review in Classic Rock incorrectly assumed that Derek was now finally able to attract big name guitarists via his new found fame with Black Country Communion. Well clearly they hadn't bothered to check out his previous albums featuring such guitar luminaries as Allan Holdsworth, Al Di Meola, Yngwie, Zakk Wylde, et al! Also the review likened this to Blow By Blow era Beck, but if anything it is more akin to the There and Back period of the maestro's work.

Steve Stevens, famous for his Top Gun guitar epic, turns in another sublimely melodic performance on the title track Oceanan and I too am pleasantly surprised by Joe Bonamassa's Beck'esque stylings.

The reason I think this is Derek's best album to date is consistency and restraint. Whilst restraint isn't a word often associated with fusion, here Derek steers clear of the histrionic overplaying of some of his previous guitar compadres (take note Zakk) and delivers a consistently listenable set of tunes with each guitarist turning in sympathetic and stirring performances. The Classic Rock review also, incorrectly, suggested that Derek sounded like a guest on his own album at times, but this misses the key point that he is the songwriter and as such does not have to contribute overbearing solos in each track.

I heartily recommend this album to existing Derek fans, and also to those newcomers to his music who have a penchant for classic fusion. To my mind Derek is the natural inheritor of Jan Hamer's crown as the most compatible keyboard player for guitarists, and on this album he pays respectful homage to Jan's pioneering style and that brief period of wonderfully exciting music that existed in the early to mid 70s.

As I was listening to this it suddenly came to mind the albums I bought in the early 1980's by Jeff Beck and his Wired album with Jan Hammer,I listened to that again and ending up enjoying the Jeff Beck album more.

Derek Sherinian has made pure gold here with his latest release Oceana, a nine track instrumental extravaganza.
There is a notable assembly of musicians as well who play some of the finest works you will hear this year on a cd. Favouring a jazz/rock guitar fusion approach, this cd creates an energy that sets him apart and will appeal to a wide stream audience.
Collaborators on this work are Steve Lukather, Joe Bonamassa, Tony McAlpine, Steve Stevens, Simon Phillips, Doug Aldrich, Jimmy Johnson and Tony Franklin.
Five Elements opens up with a great guitar riff from McAlpine with menacing keys from Derek and scintilating drumming from Phillips, the similar formula hits the mark with the classy Mercury 7.
Lukather shows his skill on three tracks on here Mulholland, Euphoria and Seven Sins, less frenetic than the previous tracks , the playing on these tracks is sublime. Doug Aldrich makes an appearance on the wonderful El Camino Diablo with glorious duet sections with Derek on this track.
Bonamassa lays down a smooth blues groove on the guitar for the track I Heard That, the two BCC members clearly enjoying working together on projects, if they continue to produce results like this then I see a very fruitful musical future here.
The Satrianiesque track Ghost Runner features Franklin and Johnson on a real rocker of a track that will make a great tv/film theme if used properly. The same personnel are on the title track and very beautiful Oceana, one of the best instrumental pieces you will ever listen to , it is just exquisite.
Seven of the tracks on the cd are co-written with co-producer and top musician Simon Phillips, whose work on it is worthy of a special mention, classy drumming all the way.
