Hectic Watermelon

Guitarist John Czajkowski has produced “The Great American Road Trip”, with Darren “D-Ride” DeBree on drums, Harley Magsino on bass, and special guest, Mahavishnu Orchestra alumnus, Jerry Goodman on electric violin. And what a road trip it is. These guys hit it hard from the opening measure, driving through odd time signatures, syncopations and polyrhythms like a Humvee. At times funk, jazz, metal, prog-rock, avante garde, you name it, this disc will grab you and not let go. Five tracks are spinning now.

Kiko Loureiro - Universo Inverso

Those of you familiar with Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro are most likely aware of his extensive metal discography. So prepare for a 180…. this is some of the classiest, yet entirely edgy jazz-fusion these ears have come across in a long time. Plenty of credit has to be shared with the three other fantastic players on the disc: Yaniel Matos, who wrote a number of the songs, Cuca Teixeira on drums and Carlinhos Noronha on bass. Catch six tracks off the album on the station, and run out and buy the disc at www.boosweet.com — you’re in for a treat.
