Two great recordings sessions from Shrieve

"This CD contains actually 2 recordings dates compiled on one CD. The first half of the CD is from a session called Deep Umbra from 1995 with Michael Shrieve (former Santana drummer) and the late, great Shawn Lane on guitar and Jonas Hellborg on bass. This section leanes towards the Indian influences that both Lane and Hellorg became deply rooted. This session is similar to other Lane/Hellborg collaborations and even some tunes are the same as later tunes with a few names changed. Of course, there is plenty never before heard music also.
The second half of the CD in from a date called Flying Polly from 1993 with Bill Frisell on guitar and Wayne Horvitz on organ. This is great guitar playing by Frisell from avant garde styles to rock and jazz. Horvitz's organ playing is a nice compliment to Frisell. Shrieve's playing is great through out.
In total this CD has almost 1:20 minutes of music. This is a must have for any Hellborg/Lane fans as well as Frisell fans."
Two phenomenal guitarists, two halves

"This CD has two parts to it, but Michael Shrieve (Santana's drummer that did the drum solo at Woodstock) plays drums throughout. The first 9 or 10 tracks feature Swedish bass guitarist Jonas Hellborg and recently departed and relatively undiscovered (but oh so phenomenal!) Shawn Lane on guitar. Bill Frisell and organist Victor Horvitz take over the second half of the CD.
Hellborg, Lane, and Shrieve serve up some very tasty and flambouyant jazz that sometimes crosses over into heavy metal, while Frisell, Horvitz and Shrieve serve up a rather eclectic and almost esoteric mix of jazz.
If you're familiar with Hellborg & Lane, you'll hear some new tunes and some tunes that have been released on Personae and Time Is The Enemy, but it's still fantastic music!"
