21st century Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Zappa at a psychedelic shred guitar ethno fusion festival.

11 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Instrumental Rock, JAZZ: Jazz Fusion

Solar Flare strives to take guitar instrumental music into new realms by blending the best elements of classic rock and fusion with progressive compositions, a contemporary dash of world music flavour and a fun sense of musical adventure. Imagine if Zappa had written the music for Jeff Beck's "Blow by Blow", adding the fire of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, some Beatles-like psychedelia and the zany guitar antics of early Steve Vai. The result would come close to describing the vibe and momentum of the music on 'Solar Flare'. Add to the picture the kind of exceptional guitar playing that would stand up to the rigorous demands of such dynamic music. Phi's individual playing comfortably spans the gap from emotional and passionate phrasing on the ballads 'So Far Away' and 'Passion Reborn', to insane alien hyper shred guitar tradeoffs with Bumblefoot on 'Psychometamorph'.

The album also features the phenominal performances of world renowned drummer Marco Minnemann, and bassist Fabio Trentini, with guest appearances by keyboard virtuoso Lale Larson, Peter Stacey on flute/saxophone and ex-Gryphon bassonist Brian Gulland among others.

Matt Williams, head of Liquid Note Records, writes:
"Solar Flare is one of the most original instrumental albums to hit the scene for quite a while. If I had to make comparison then Frank Zappa, early Steve Vai and Mike Keneally come to mind, but more in expression and attitude than in specific reference points. It's energetic, imaginative, experimental, ethnic. catchy and unpredictable, augmented by superb musicianship and featuring instruments one rarely hears in an instrumental guitar context. Yaan-Zek has imprinted his heart and soul in this project and as such, I can't recommend it highly enough."

An exquisite CD production, 'Solar Flare' is lovingly brought to you by UK based guitarist Phi Yaan-Zek in association with Geomagnetic Records and is beautifully packaged with a 12 page full colour booklet containing fantastic graphics, session details and exclusive song liner notes.
