âImagine a musician with equal facility on bass AND guitar. He plays guitar like Allan Holdsworth and plays bass like Jeff Berlin. Is he human? Is he from this planetâ (Jeffrey Ryan Smoots)

"Rarely have I heard a musician that can double on the bass and guitar with the proficiency that I am hearing from Al Garcia... â
--Prognosis Web Site (MJ Brady)

"What great music! I love your tone and touch and the ideas are wonderful -- beautiful, creative stuff -- and on both guitar and bass! Wow!"
--Michael Manring

"Guitarist Al Garcia shows us that Fusion Jazz is far from dead... It is the kind of Jazz that will take you away on itâs storied journey."

Imagine a kind of music that knows no stylistic barriers; music that borrows from the best of many traditions to create a new reality, an alternate reality.

âAlternate Realitiesâ is guitarist/bassist Al Garciaâs follow up to his highly acclaimed first release âMake It So.â Combining elements of jazz-rock fusion, progressive rock, classical, jazz, Latin, space rock, electronica, and cinematic music, Alâs music transcends boundaries.

This is music that will take you places. Soaring guitar solos, percolating bass lines, lush synthesizer sounds, and driving percussion are featured in songs with infectious melodies and inventive arrangements.
âIt is the kind of music that will take you away on its storied journey.â
