STEVE HUNTER


Guitar Legend Steve Hunter To Release New Album “Before The Lights Go Out”

The Deacon Of Rock Bites Back!

“Before The Lights Go Out” is long time Alice Cooper/Lou Reed Guitarist Steve Hunter's latest solo album. The cover art and title make a statement about his failing eyesight, but don't make the mistake of thinking this is a quiet wave goodbye. As soon as you put on the first track, you will know that this is more like a Blues Rock Declaration of Independence! There are sexy grooves, luscious guitar tones and melodies galore.

As with all Hunter's releases, there is some diversity and sound imagery, not least of which is Tienes Mi Corazón where alongside his nylon string improvisation comes the sound of his own heart. And listen out for Joe Satriani adding his fire to the heat of “Mojo Man.”

Also joining Steve on a couple of tracks are two great Bass players: Erik Scott can be heard on “Mojo Man,” Erik is also an Alice Cooper alumni. On “Under The Bodhi Tree” is Andy Stoller. Steve and Andy toured together with Tracy Chapman during the “Telling Stories” album period, most recently Andy has been touring with Ann Wilson of Heart.

Says Steve, “This album was a real joy for me on many levels. A big part of the inspiration and motivation that kept me going; was from all the people out there who had faith in me and encouraged me through the entire process with their donations and comments. It was really a wonderful experience having you all be a part of it. It's my deepest hope and desire that you all enjoy the music on this album as much as I enjoyed making it.
Thank you and God bless!”



Steve Hunter is his own man; he has been around the block with a forty-five year career.

From his 1973 solos on Alice Cooper's “Billion Dollar Babies” album, his legendary acoustic work on Peter Gabriel's “Solsbury Hill,” his “Intro” to Lou Reed's “Sweet Jane” and his searing opening solos on Aerosmith's version of “Train Kept A Rolling” Most recently he can be heard on Alice Cooper's 2017 album “Paranormal” making this his ninth Cooper album appearance. The Deacon is not done yet but his life is evolving! He has challenges playing live now but his honed skill, tone, power and soul, is dished up on this hot plate of guitar driven instrumental tastiness.

Release date September 25, 2017


VARIOUS ARTISTS - JAZZTUBLIEFT! EEN OOR OP JAZZ IN VLAANDEREN

I brought this promotional album home after a visit to a record fair.
This release is an initiative from the Flanders Music Centre and it takes a look a jazz music in Flanders. Well, to the jazz music scene in Flanders in 2005.

Next to the music that is taken from various albums that were released at the time, the album also includes some unreleased material, like Flat Earth Society’s ‘Psychoscout’, recorded in concert at De Vooruit in Ghent in 2004, or a track by Bart Maris’ Les Poubelles project from 2005.

ABSYNTHE MINDED

I don't listen to the radio that much.
When I do, it's in the car and it's Belgian Radio 1 or Studio Brussel.

Today started with the news that Absynthe Minded will be releasing a new album.
Perfect radio material.

BECHES BREW - BECHES INDIAN BREW

It is no secret that Swedish jazz drummer, composer and producer Bengt Berger has a weak spot for Indian music. He even lived in India for a while (in the 60s) and studied there with different teachers.

January of last year, Bengt took his Beches Brew ensemble to India where they were joined by eminent Indian maestros of the Karnatic and of the Hindustani tradition for a series of concerts.
Later the same year, some of the Indian musicians traveled to Sweden for the Swedish leg of the tour.

On "Beches Indian Brew", we get treated to recordings from this latter part of the tour. Eight amazing tracks.
It's fascinating to hear how beautiful jazz and Indian music blend together.

This is essential listening.
Highly recommended.

Available from Country & Eastern.
