ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There are many styles of rock guitar, and this is not most of them.

This is instrumental acid rock electric and acoustic guitar with bass and drums playing rock funk psychedelic music.

This set was partly inspired by the performances of Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix during the years 1965 to 1969. These pieces are in the spirit of their melodic style of extended guitar solos over a bass and drums rock foundation. This music evolves in a continuous variation, seeking a balance between composition and improvisation.

It’s called acid rock because that seems less misleading than other categories, but it’s still misleading.

Atavistic Times was mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California.

atavistic times
I'm not a fan of acid or psychedelic rock or funk, and those are all probably misnomers for this CD. It's an instrumental CD by a guitar virtuoso, mastered at Fantasy Studios by a virtuoso engineer, and oddly engaging. At times hypnotic, at times even haunting, it's a collection of ranging guitar pieces with a pulse, performed by a descendant of Sandy Bull and Jimi Hendrix, a thoughtful fusion of composition and inspired riffs, a welcome companion on a rainy late afternoon when the sun has set and the sky is still grey, a dog barks in the distance, and you are alone. Listen.
