Album Notes
Guitar has been the primary focus of Brent since the early days of 1976. He has toured through Slovenija & Italy as a duet, playing festivals, Bed & Breakfast inns, and pubs along the way, composed for radio, television commercials, film trailers and CD-rom sales pitches for software companies. Mr. Magstadt has studied jazz, classical, and is - similar to Ms. Thal - an accomplished multi-instrumentalist. A vinyl release in 1985 was subsequently followed by extensive ensemble performances, including stage shares with Andy Narrell, Carl Fontana, and Randy Brecker. The year 2005 finally brought Brent to the studio, resulting in his first solo CD release \"Brent Magstadt\". Currently writing and recording with Ms. Thal for his next release, Brent continues to perform with The Elementals and Sherri Thal, and as a sideman in Lava Jam Band.

\"Brent Magstadt may be the most significant and innovative artist that you have never heard.\" Keith \"MuzikMan\" Hannaleck (

\"In the captivating Samba De Los Rockos he synthesizes grand and picante Latin melodies and rhythms that draw an irresistibly sensuous samba line straight South across the border. Passionate diversity; at once rhythmic and joyful -- describes Brent Magstadt\'s latest musical iteration. Play it often. Play it loud.\" Susan McCabe, President, Voice of Vashon Radio (

totally fine
What an inspiring cd! even made housework fun....nice diversity, so often lacking on solo artists releases. Really fun to listen to - good road tripping, too.


Amazing talent shared on this cd!
This cd rocks! Totally amazing. Remember doing things like following around the Dead or Neil Young during summer tours? I swear when I listen to this, I feel like a summer night on a hill somewhere just trippin' out to Neil. Plus mixed with Pacific NW island life somehow, too, though. There's one track with rain -- then the next track with the diggeridoos. The digggs sound like fog horns after a hard rain. It's the musical sound of life on Puget Sound in the more magical vortex areas! I love it!

Jim Bruner

An excellent and original piece of work with various musical styles.
The CD has a variety of musical styles and instruments and is a pleasure to listen to. This is a unique collection of songs that offers something for every musical taste.

Jeffery Wehr (Wehrd Music Company)

Awesome Grooving Funk/Jazz/Rock CD with Surprises!
Brent Magstadt has created a very eclectic sound on this CD. His background in music melds his classical compositional skills with his love for jazz, funk, and rock. The rock influence, mainly a crunching 4/4 beat, underlies most of the tracks on this CD. Most songs gravitate toward a “latino-Santana-istic” groove such as on Percolator, Hairball, Samba De Los Rockos, and Ami Grooves, however Brent’s own guitar solo work borderlines faster, Satriani-type melodies. Anyone that knows Brent also knows his humorous side as revealed in the prelude L’Inizio and the postlude L’Estremita…both being unique instrumentation as well as using Italian words to open and close his fabulous work in between (Dr. Johnston would be proud). I could go on, but they want us to keep this short, so…great CD Brent Magstadt, and keep creating!
