Hi friends


2022 Work in Progress..ive


The best songs of 2022 as new albums come out

one track per group or artist ...

which can change over the course of 12 months and which can too

be replaced by better songs than other artists


at the end of the year it will be easier to create

the favorite playlist of 2022




*****
the background image I chose because I would like it to
represent in the first half the last six months with the virus
to return in the second half of the year in color and normal life ...
as well as for the spectacle that the infinite galaxies
are capable of giving.

SIMON PHILLIPS

Jazz Rock / Fusion had its best moment in the 70s .. 80s and then faded
away until a few years ago where it began to give strong signs of rebirth
and is welcome ... a genre that has always fascinated me that has
always involved with great skills ... Simon Philipps is certainly one of
these who did not miss a beat in his solo career ... 6 albums all of
an excellent level and with this Protocol V does not contradict ...
7 tracks that they should all be chosen as the best of the album and
that is why I will choose one but it will not be my definitive choice and certainly an album that must not be missing for those who love the genre.

Breidablik in mythology is the abode of Baldr, second son of Odin and
deity of benevolence .... and under this name we find the Norwegian
multi-instrumentalist Morten Birkeland Nielsenl whom I have followed
since his first composition, it is not easy to find news about this multi-instrumentalist who is inspired by the "Berlin school of electronic music" together with his band he is continually improving his compositions until
he arrives at ALDUORKA his latest album where he reaches his maximum
by returning the sounds and style of the first Tangerine Dream with
skilful management and superposition of the oscillators all in a fusion
of guitar and synthesizers, an artist who deserves to be highlighted
but who does not seek success, releases his first albums on cassettes
and we are in 2017 not 1970 for a limited number in addition to digital download and only recently have they forced him to publish vinyls and
CDs that have been produced in a few hundred e of course already finished

JETHRO TULL
Name:  uno.jpg
Views: 59
Size:  437.0 KB


JETHRO TULL & IAN ANDERSON BIOGRAPHY


Early in 1968, a group of young British musicians, born from the ashes of various failed regional bands gathered together in hunger, destitution and modest optimism in Luton, to the north of London. With a common love of Blues and an appreciation, between them, of various other music forms, they started to win over a small but enthusiastic audience in the various pubs and clubs of Southern England. The breakthrough came when they were offered the Thursday night residency at London’s famous Marquee Club in Wardour Street, Soho.



The early Jethro Tull released their first Blues-oriented album, This Was, in the latter part of 1968 before moving on to more home-grown and eclectic efforts in 1969 with Stand Up and a flurry of single releases, including Living In The Past, in the UK market.

Benefit, Aqualung, and Thick As A Brick followed and the band’s success grew internationally. Various band members came and went, but the charismatic front man and composer, flautist and singer Ian Anderson continued to lead the group through its various musical incarnations.

Jethro Tull were, by the mid-seventies, one of the most successful live performing acts on the world stage, rivalling Zeppelin, Elton John and even the Rolling Stones. Surprising, really, for a group whose more sophisticated and evolved stylistic extravagance was far from the Pop and Rock norm of that era.

With now some 30-odd albums to their credit and sales totalling more than 60 million, the apparently uncommercial Tull have continued to travel near and far to fans across the world.

After fifty years at the bottom, at the top and various points in between, the Tull repertoire is still performed typically more than a hundred concerts each year by Ian Anderson on his continuing tours throughout the world. Ian remains at the centre of a group of sometimes changing but highly capable – indeed excellent – musicians.

The line up for 2022 is:
Ian Anderson: Flute, vocals & acoustic guitar
Joe Parrish-James: Guitar & vocals
Scott Hammond: Drums
John O’Hara: Keyboards & vocals
David Goodier: Bass guitar & vocals

The band continue to delight audiences everywhere and present the ongoing legacy of Tull’s music with its rich variety and depth of expression wherever the fans, young and old, want to hear Rock, Folk, Jazz and Classical-inspired music for grown-ups.

Ian Anderson, known throughout the world of rock music as the flute and voice behind the legendary Jethro Tull, celebrates his 53rd year as a recording and performing musician in 2022.

Ian was born in 1947 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. After attending primary school in Edinburgh, his family relocated to Blackpool in the north of England in 1959. Following a traditional Grammar school education, he moved on to Art college to study fine art before deciding on an attempt at a musical career.

Tull formed in 1968 out of the amalgamation of the John Evan Band and McGregor’s Engine, two blues-based local UK groups.
After a lengthy career, Jethro Tull has released 30 studio and live albums, selling more than 60 million copies since the band first performed at London’s famous Marquee Club in February 1968.

After undertaking more than 3000 concerts in 40 countries throughout five decades, Tull has played typically 100-plus concerts each year to longstanding, as well as new fans worldwide. He continues to celebrate the catalogue of Jethro Tull along with the latest 2022 release, The Zealot Gene, with various dates in the USA and elsewhere in the world.

Widely recognized as the man who introduced the flute to rock music, Ian Anderson remains the crowned exponent of the popular and rock genres of flute playing. So far, no pretender to the throne has stepped forward. Ian also plays ethnic flutes and whistles together with acoustic guitar and the mandolin family of instruments, providing the acoustic textures which has been an integral part of most of the Tull repertoire.

Anderson has so far recorded seven diverse solo albums in his career: 1983’s “Walk Into Light”, the flute instrumental “Divinities” album for EMI’s Classical Music Division in 1995 which reached number one in the relevant Billboard chart, the acoustic collections of songs, “The Secret Language of Birds”, and “Rupi’s Dance”. In a more progressive rock context he recorded “Thick As A Brick 2” in 2012 and “Homo Erraticus” in 2014. Released in 2017, the classically inspired album “Jethro Tull – The String Quartets” with the Carducci Quartet reached number one in the Billboard Classical Charts.

Anderson lives on a farm in the southwest of England where he has a recording studio and office. He has been married for 42 years to Shona who is also an active director of their music and other companies. They have two children – James and Gael – and three grandchildren.

His hobbies include the growing of many varieties of hot chile peppers, the study and conservation of the 26 species of small wildcats of the world and the appreciation of mechanical watches, fountain pens and vintage cameras. He reluctantly admits to owning digital cameras and scanners for his work on the photographic promotional images related to Tull as well as his solo career.

In 2006, he was awarded a Doctorate in Literature from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, the Ivor Award for International Achievement in Music and, in the New Years Honours List 2008, an MBE for services to music. In 2011, he received another Doctorate in Literature from Dundee University.

Ian owns no fast car, never having taken a driving test, and has a wardrobe of singularly uninspiring and drab leisurewear. He still keeps a couple of off-road competition motorcycles, a few sporting guns and a saxophone which he promises never to play again.

He declares a lifelong commitment to music as a profession, being far too young to hang up his hat or his flute, although the tights and codpiece have long since been consigned to some forgotten bottom drawer.

TIME HORIZON

TIME HORIZON BIOGRAPHY from official website

Time Horizon is based in Northern California and is musically influenced by several symphonic progressive rock bands such as Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Kansas, Toto, Pink Floyd, Styx, Saga, UK and Brand X.

The band originated with the meeting of Ralph Otteson (keyboards/background vocals) and Bruce Gaetke (lead vocals/drums). After working together on a project for a few weeks the two decided to form a new band. With new members Dave Dickerson (lead/rhythm guitar) and Steve Gourley (bass guitar), they began writing original music.

Along the journey, members have changed but the mission remains constant. Energized with members Allen White (bass guitar) and Dave Miller (lead/rhythm guitar/keyboards), Time Horizon is again pleased to announce additions of David Bradley Mau (front man/lead vocals/keyboards) and Michael Gregory (lead/rhythm guitar/background vocals).

In 2011, Time Horizon released their debut CD “Living Water.” The CD melds together stylized lyrics of faith, as well as refined symphonic music and instrumentals, to bring together the positive inspired sound of Time Horizon. With standout tracks like “Life Fantastic,” the music of Time Horizon will appeal to a broad range of music lovers.

Time Horizon’s second CD, released under Melodic Revolutions Records, titled “Transitions” was mixed by Billy Sherwood of the band Yes. The album is named Transitions because it is a transitional album conveying “from what was, into what can be.” The band’s desire was to use Transitions to make an impact on the world with a positive message of hope, peace and the revelation of what our purpose in this life is truly about.

Now with the addition of our new members, the third CD “Power of Three” has been release as of 2.22.2022. This, being the third album put forth by Time Horizon, is an evolution of our message going forward.

STEVE VAI
Name:  uno.jpg

Biography

Steve Vai


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Steven Siro Vai (/vaɪ/; born June 6, 1960) is an American guitarist, composer, singer, songwriter, and producer. A three-time Grammy Award winner and fifteen-time nominee,[1] Vai started his music career in 1978 at the age of eighteen as a transcriptionist for Frank Zappa,[2] and played in Zappa's band from 1980 to 1983.[1] He embarked on a solo career in 1983 and has released eight solo albums to date.[3] He has recorded and toured with Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth, and Whitesnake, as well as recording with artists such as Public Image Ltd, Mary J. Blige, Spinal Tap, and Alice Cooper. Additionally, Vai has toured with live-only acts G3, Zappa Plays Zappa, and the Experience Hendrix tour, as well as headlining international tours.[4]

Vai has been described as a "highly individualistic player" and part of a generation of "heavy rock and metal virtuosi who came to the fore in the 1980s".[5] He released his first solo album Flex-Able in 1984, while his most successful release, Passion and Warfare (1990), was described as "the richest and best hard rock guitar-virtuoso album of the '80s".[6] He was voted the "10th Greatest Guitarist" by Guitar World magazine,[7] and has sold over 15 million records.[1][8]

Steve has Italian origins: his grandparents were Lomellini, precisely from the Taccona farmhouse in the municipality of Dorno in the province of Pavia (on 22 July 2012 he was awarded honorary citizenship in the same municipality) and from there they emigrated to the United States of America.

Vai is known for his guitar instrumental music, which he composes, performs and produces himself, but has also performed on recordings for several other rock / metal artists and bands. In 1979 he attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where he got noticed by the legendary rock guitarist Frank Zappa, who hired him first in the role of transcriber of scores and later as performer of his most complex pieces, pieces that required great technical skills.
Career
Steve Vai in Malibu in 2017

In 1985 he replaced Yngwie Malmsteen as lead guitar in Graham Bonnet's Alcatrazz, with whom he recorded the album Disturbing the Peace. From 1986 to 1989 he played for David Lee Roth, recording the albums Eat 'Em and Smile (1986) and Skyscraper (1988). In 1989 and 1990 he replaced the injured Adrian Vandenberg in Whitesnake, one of the British rock legends, shortly before they began recording the album and the world tour for Slip of the Tongue. Vandenberg injured his wrist trying some exercises he found in a book.

Steve Vai continues to play concerts regularly, both with his band and with his friend and former guitar teacher, like him Grammy Award winner, Joe Satriani, in the concert series called G3 which began in 1996. The music of Steve Vai is featured in several films. He himself appeared on the big screen in a 1986 film with Ralph Macchio titled Mississippi Adventure (Crossroads, by Walter Hill), in which he played Jack Butler, a demon-inspired guitarist. In the film's highlight, Vai engages in a guitar duel with Macchio. The part of the latter is voiced by Vai himself, while the "slide guitar" part is played by Ry Cooder as admitted by an interview with Steve Vai.

The pseudo-classical-baroque composition in thirty-second (titled Eugene's Trick Bag) with which Macchio wins the competition was written by Vai, which was heavily based on Capriccio Op.1 # 5 by Niccolň Paganini, and has become one of the songs preferred by many apprentice guitarists. Vai won a Grammy Award in 1991. He also performed on the soundtrack of John Carpenter's Ghosts from Mars along with Anthrax and Buckethead. He was also called by the well-known drummer Gregg Bissonette, to compose and record some songs (such as Common Road). While Vai's contribution to other people's material has been limited by the rock or heavy-rock style of the bands he has played for, his music from time to time seems to evoke esotericism.

Vai is an acclaimed music producer: he owns two recording studios, "The mother ship" and "The harmony hut", and his recordings combine his distinctive skill in new compositions with a considerable use of effects in the recording phase. Steve Vai owns Favored Nations, a recording and publishing company specializing in caring for new talent or high profile artists from around the world.
Private life

Vai has two children, Julian Angel and Fire, and is married to Pia Maiocco (former bassist of the hair metal band Vixen). Steve likes to keep bees, which regularly produce honey that Steve sells for charity every year through his website ("The Fire Garden Honey").
Instrumentation
Steve Vai in Madrid in 2004

Vai has been an endorser for Ibanez since 1986: in 1987 his signature model, the Ibanez JEM, arrived on the market, while in 1990 the company created a 7-string guitar, the Universe, with the same characteristics as the JEM but without a handle. The Universe went out of production after only two years, only to be resumed in 1997.

His favorite guitar, used several times live and in the studio since 1993, is a prototype of JEM7VWH which he called "EVO": this guitar was given to him to test what were then prototypes of DiMarzio Evolution pickups (hence EVO); he also owns a custom heart shaped guitar with three necks, the "Ultra Zone" visible on the cover of the album of the same name and a white three neck JEM.
Style

Considered a luminary of the guitar, he is particularly appreciated not only for his extraordinary technique but also for the expressiveness of his solos.

His style is characterized by a great command of the legate and in the use of the tremolo lever, with which he is able to literally make his guitar "talk" and "laugh" (as in the intro of Yankee Rose of the album Eat 'Em and Smile with David Lee Roth).

Zappa's musical world has definitely influenced Vai's guitar peculiarities and his conception of dissonances and their insertion within the scales, as well as the introduction of noises and voices into the pieces. Another of Steve's most used techniques is tapping, which he uses both in its most classic form (2-3 fingers) and in its more complex form (4-5 fingers), just think at the beginning of the song Building the Church .

Biography

JOE SATRIANI


From Official Website



Joe Satriani is the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer, with six gold and platinum discs to his credit (including one more gold award for the debut album by his band Chickenfoot), and sales in excess of 10 million copies. Satriani's 19th studio album, The Elephants of Mars, crackles with an exciting new energy, briskly traveling through stylistic roads that feel freshly updated, viewed through new eyes. Forced time away from the road due to the pandemic, allowed for time to deliver an album length journey that never dulls.

Since September 18, 1970 (the day his idol Jimi Hendrix passed away), Satriani has dedicated himself to the artistry of the instrument. While still a teenager in his hometown of Westbury, New York, he taught guitar to another budding six-string hopeful, Steve Vai. A few years later, Satriani moved to San Francisco and played guitar in a popular new wave band, The Squares, and briefly joined The Greg Kihn Band before the release of "Not Of This Earth".

Satriani’s reputation was already growing in guitar circles – along with Vai, some of his other students were Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Testament’s Alex Skolnick – but in 1987, he broke through to the masses with his second studio full-length, "Surfing With The Alien", a massive seller (it hit No. 29 on the Billboard 200) that included the radio hits “Satch Boogie” and the title track. The success of that album caught the attention of Mick Jagger, who asked Satriani to be his lead guitarist on his first-ever solo tour, in 1988.

As a live performer, Satriani has toured the world with each new release (his last concert tour for 2013’s "Unstoppable Momentum" saw the guitarist touch down in 32 countries). In 1993, he joined Deep Purple as a temporary replacement for Ritchie Blackmore during a Japanese tour. In 1996, Satriani founded the multi-guitarist traveling experience called G3, which has seen him share stages with Vai, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robert Fripp, among others. And starting in 2009, Satriani traversed the globe again as a member of Chickenfoot. The all-star band (which also includes singer Sammy Hagar, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith) has issued two albums, their debut and 2011’s follow-up, "Chickenfoot III".

Satriani’s solo discography includes a host of classics, including 1989’s "Flying In A Blue Dream", "The Extremist" from 1992, "Is There Love In Space?" (2004) and 2010’s "Black Swans And Wormhole Wizards". His 15 Grammy nominations have been for songs such as “Always With Me, Always With You,” “The Crush Of Love,” and “Summer Song,” as well as full albums like "Surfing With The Alien", "The Extremist" and "Super Colossal".

Satriani has appeared in motion pictures such as Christopher Guest’s 2006 release, "For Your Consideration", and the 2011 Brad Pitt starrer, "Moneyball". Through the years, he has designed and endorsed guitars, amplifiers and effects pedals for Ibanez, Marshall and Vox. His JS Series of guitars through Ibanez has been one of the company’s most popular and consistent sellers.



Joe Satriani ... always great ... with an unrivaled creativity ... many successful albums ... very generous in inserting almost always many tracks .... from this latest album I have chosen
The Elephants of Mars which is also the title of the album

THE JOHN IRVINE BAND

Biography

JOHN IRVINE BAND


From Official Website





The John Irvine Band was formed in the summer of 2011, in Edinburgh. Contemporary classical composition no longer held my interest as it once did – it was time to return to the music I loved the most – jazz-rock.

Much of my listening, over the course of my life, has been devoted the great fusion players of the past 40 years: Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays, Gary Burton, Allan Holdsworth, Bill Connors, Jan Garbarek, John Scofield, Weather Report etc. – and I wanted to reflect what I’d learned from them and, hopefully, add something new to the genre. So, in 2010 I began to write music for a guitar trio setting – the result became ‘Wait & See’ (2011).

Two more albums followed in this jazz-rock vein ‘Next Stop’ (2013) and ‘Metaphysical Attractions’ (2018) until I decided to add a more progressive rock element to the music resulting in ‘The Machinery Of The Heavens’ (2020).

All four albums have received overwhelming critical acclaim and plaudits from many magazines and websites. Several tracks have been played on internet and terra firma radio stations, such as: La Villa Strangiato, The Prog Rock Palace, Xymphonia, El Ritorno Del Gigante, Canvas Prog Hour, Friday Night Progressive and many more. I was delighted when ‘Metaphysical Attractions’ was awarded 3rd place in the Fusion category in the 2019 Friday Night Progressive ‘IndeProg’ Awards.

Both ‘Wait & See’ and ‘Next Stop’ were recorded with the same band lineup: myself: Guitars, Keyboards, Alan Emslie: Drums, Percussion and Doug Kemp: Bass. ‘Metaphysical Attractions’ featured a new line-up: renowned Scottish drummer Rich Kass on Drums, Rob Ironside on Sax and Gwen Kelso on flute. The fourth album ‘The Machinery Of The Heavens’ featured the ‘DUO Mk.I’ lineup of me and Rich Kass.

‘Psychopomp’ (2022) will see another new drummer in the JIB ‘hot seat’ (as Rich Kass was unavailable at the time to do the sessions in Novemeber of 2021) – Calum McIntyre. Thus creating a DUO Mk.II lineup!
