TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 2 November 2007
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

By comparison, that is, with his two masterworks World Gone Strange and The Last Dance of Mr X (reviewed elsewhere). It may just be a matter of personal taste, but I simply couldn't find a shred of musical enjoyment in Synasthaesia. Whatever you do, don't buy this without hearing it first.
