ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A lot of guitarists claim to be "orchestral" players, and the result is often dreadful to my ears, but Sindel is cagey enough to be both hilarious and enjoyable. His reading of this John Sousa march - perhaps best known as the Monty Python theme - is well arranged and goofy. It's whacked out genius!" - GUITAR PLAYER Magazine April 2008

*************************************************************************************************************

Dan Sindel, a “One Man Orchestra,” recreates orchestral scores by transposing and transcribing the compositions to accommodate the guitar's tonal range…. Hundreds of layered guitar tracks create a massive electric guitar wall of sound.

This collectible "limited edition" CD features an eclectic blend of Dan's "Symphonic Guitar" instrumental orchestrations and brings a new light to modern guitar playing and arrangement.

Some of the greatest mixing engineers and producers in the music business today lent their talents to bring Dan's unique musical vision to life including:
● Steve Sykes (Steve Lukather, Bon Jovi, Stanley Clarke, David Benoit)
● Carmen Rizzo (Prince, Coldplay, Seal, Ray Charles, Paul Oakenfold)
● Khaliq Glover (Herbie Hancock, Prince, Michael Jackson)
● Bruno Canale (Brian Welch of Korn, Alex Acuna)
● Rick Shlosser (Alice Cooper, Rod Stewart, Van Morrison, Cher, Diana Ross) - percussion
● Bernie Becker (Tenacious D, Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond) - mastering

● Disc features the beautifully digitally re-mastered bonus 15 minute, 3 song medley “Excerpts From Handel's Messiah

Astonishing Sousa Renditions!!!
For those of you who have heard versions of the venerable marches on Dan's new CD, only butchered by amateur teenaged tone-deaf musicians on a high school football field, or possibly as background in a movie soundtrack in the latest patriotic film; you must take a listen to the astonishing renditions on Marching In. It's the familiarity of the Sousa compositions that really makes this such a fun listen. The CD opens with The Washington Post, which traditionally evokes cadets marching in time with the cadences, but the timbre of the multiple layered guitar tracks seems to conjure memories of the Clockwork Orange Soundtrack with its foreboding synthesized 9th Symphony. The CD also includes The Liberty Bell, which if you're not familiar, it's also known as the Monty Python's Flying Circus theme song. The Liberty Bell is presented in its full glory with passages that I wasn't quite familiar with, mainly because I'm so used to the Python version, but you really get a broader sense of the composition, while still getting an impression of zany comedic angst. All of the various marches are laced with the amazing counterpoint melodies of the original compositions. The original mix and separation of the motifs, the meter and articulation of the drumming, and the truly awe inspiring performances; make this a first-rate listening experience. I'm definitely going to take this CD with my on my next long road trip. It is overflowing with the spirit of adventure.

The Power and Majesty
"The power and majesty of Dan Sindel's Symphonic Guitars is unlike anything that's come before it. His unique approach forever removes the "sonic handcuffs" from what your think a guitar is capable of doing with a little imagination."

I LOVE IT..!
“Let me tell you about Dan, he is a fantastic guitarist...Absolutely Brilliant..! I was knocked out by what he did... He plays Classical pieces all on the electric guitar and they are really quite astonishing! I LOVE IT..!”

Dan Sindel the solo orchestra.
If you have never listened to Dan Sindel before or even know who the man is you may worry about the execution of the emulation of the work of a multi skill marching band by a man and a range or guitars and FX’s.

I have listened to Dan Sindel and I can say with no hesitation that he has achieved an amazing feat in his interpretations of some classic marching songs. He starts it off with that classic The Washington Post all the way though amazing renditions of the theme for Monty Pythons to Hallelujah. There is never a moment when a single note sounds forced or overdone (or underdone). The sound is full of amazing depths that not only matches what has been done before but also give them a modern feeling that is unlike anything I have listened to.

I hope lot of people listen to Dan Sindels work as it people such as him with a unique vision is well worth the time taken to listen. I can only imagine how much time he must have spent on overdubs to create such an amazing orchestra style sound.

Your direction with the guitar symphonys is very unique & I am unfamiliar with any other artists that go to such extreme detail in their work to produce this level of high-quality arrangement with such complexities in the performance.

The three tracks from "Marching In" are admittedly not my usual listens in the sense of a 'marching arrangement'... but, that being said - the detail is astounding!!!

All the guitar work sounds so strong & the richness of the harmonies are really pure & brilliantly performed from start to finish completely & convincingly with not even a wisper of fatigue despite the duration & complex attributes of each movement.

Also... the percussion work is really tight giving the piece as a whole a big solid & vibrant sound. So... despite not being my usual listen (marching style-wise) this is a first rate performance & believe it could not have panned out better!!!

"Excerts From Handel's Messiah" on the other hand is definetly in the catagory of my usual listens & as you know already my favorite or one of my favorites of yours (guitar symphony piece).

The level of detail, quality of tone & precision in the replication of orchestral instrumental parts is spot on & combined with the harpsichord part unites old with new all bringing the warmth & depth that makes this an unforgettable arrangement.

Top work on both pieces & movements - I would recommend this to anyone who love's to hear strong instrumental & pure toned guitar work in a modern visualisation of classical architecture. 5 Stars...

Also... the CD, packaging & presentation are first rate in visuals, detail & quality - GO DAN!!!

Amazing.....
Wow...If you're expecting an average guitarist playing average licks, then be prepared to be knocked on your butt. Dan is NOT your average guitarist. From the first note on the first track you'll know you're in for something different...very different. Dan takes an entire symphony orchestra and magically (and tastefully) squeezes it into his guitar....What comes out is pure genious. My personal favorites are "Overture" and "Halleuiah". The discipline required to performed these two tracks is simply amazing. But trust me, the entire CD is like nothing you've heard before. Production quality is absolutely pristine. Again, if you looking for the same ol' guitarist playing the same ol' stuff then please move on. But if you are seeking a guitarist who is truly different then this CD is for you.

a "One Man Orchestra"
I had the pleasure of listen to Dan’s new CD" Marching In" and right from the first song I had a smile on my face and a light step in my feet. The marching tunes made me want to get up and shake it and the spiritual tune lifted my heart.
Then I stopped and listened... and was truly amazed by what I was hearing, the fact that you get caught up in the music and think you are hearing all these different instruments, when in truth your hearing what this wonderful talented musician had recreated with the use of his many guitars. Dan Sindel is truly a "One Man Orchestra" who everyone should have the pleasure of listening too!

Stunning Musical Effort
Dan Sindel has accomplished a work of brilliance and originality whose time has truly come in this collection of music by John Philip Sousa. I was intrigued by the idea of hearing Sousa’s classics performed on the electric guitar, but I had no idea what I was in for. Dan Sindel has not just covered a bunch of Marching Band songs. Rather, through the combination of layered multi track recording, dead on arrangements and a masterful feel for the guitar, he has created a stunning musical effort which is quite staggering when you consider how many hours of fretwork went into this. Technical jargon aside, the music itself explodes with passion and excitement, not to mention a refreshing patriotic fervor. That spells genius in my book.

An Electrifying Orchestra
Since discovering Dan Sindel's music on the web, I have been looking forward to the release of his cd. Marching In fulfills all expectations. There are many superb guitarists out there, but Dan Sindel stands out from the crowd with his original and highly distinguishable electrifying orchestra. It's hard to believe that this magnificent sound is achieved solely with a guitar! The textures and interpretation are not only the work of a fine musician, but a highly skilled arranger and composer.

Creative Genius
Dan has recreated classic songs that will appeal to a much broader audience than the majorettes at the college marching band. Any fan of Americana, Classical or Rock will be inspired by the amazing tonality and structure of this amazing record. It takes an incredible amount of patience, time, commitment and skill to build something as majestic as this, dozens upon dozens of carefully layered musical parts make this sound like you were in the best seat of the house in front of a revered philharmonic orchestra. A work to be admired...
