THE BEST YET BY A GUITAR GENIUS< THANKS JOE !,
This review is from: Satchurated: Live In Montreal (Audio CD)
There are those who play guitar and then there are those who take it to another level altogether, those who leave the rest of us wondering how they play that well. Three for me stand out as the best there are around, Jeff Beck, Matt Schofield and Joe Satriani three absolute masters of the instrument who every time they perform or bring out a new album set the benchmark for the rest. Here we have Jope playing live at a gig in Montreal,Canada, during a tour promoting his most recent studio offering 'Black swans And wormhole Wizards', one of the truly great guitar albums of recent years.The concert on two discs at over two hours long is simply amazing throughout. The music form the current album takes on a new life life, and add tracks from throughout his career you get what for me is his best album ever.He has an equally brilliant band with him as ever, the audience are with him from the start but never push in over the music as happens on some live albums. This is all in all everything a JS fan could want, and surely will rank among the best albums of the year it's that good.A very generous 25 tracks here from 'Ice 9' a firm fan favourite,through tracks such
as 'Flying In A Blue Dream','Light Years Away','Dream Song','Summer Song','Crystal Planet' and of course the 'Crowd Chant',you just gotta hear this,wonderful. Any new set by Joe is interesting but this one is simply astounding and unmissable. You've no Joe Satriani albums then here's one great place to start.A classic by one of the true guitar masters !
