"Transition" is the new CD by this supergroup featuring five of the best players in their respective fields today. Every once in a while a band comes together by some magical, magnetic pull of the cosmos and blows everyone away. Produced by Larry Coryell, the "Godfather" of Jazz/Rock fusion, this new CD reflects influences from 60's Jazz to Classic 70's Blues and Fusion. With music and lyrics by Wolfman, Coryell and Bailey, "Transition" is possibly one of the most important new album releases this year.
BOB WOLFMAN: GUITAR - Raised in the urban grit of early 70's New York City surely helped to put the "soul" in his sound. Having played with Joe Beck, Chick Corea, Grover Washington Jr., and his lifelong mentor, teacher and friend Larry Coryell didn't hurt either. After playing and recording with every type of band imaginable, he graduated from Berklee College of Music and later opened his famed Wolfman’s School of Music.
LARRY CORYELL: GUITAR - Truly one of the greatest of all the Jazz guitar giants ever, Coryell deserves a special place in the history books. The pioneer "Godfather" of Jazz/Rock Fusion, he brought what amounted to a nearly alien sensibility to jazz electric guitar playing in the 1960s. Larry's hard-edged, cutting tone, phrasing and note-bending owed as much to blues, rock and even country as it did to earlier, smoother bop influences. Yet as a true eclectic, armed with a brilliant technique, he is comfortable in almost every style, from the decibel-heavy, distortion-laden electric work to the most delicate, soothing, intricate lines on acoustic guitar.
VICTOR BAILEY: BASS - Hailed as one of the worlds greatest bass guitarists, gaining international recognition in the early 80's when he joined the innovative jazz fusion supergroup Weather Report, he has made three of the most highly acclaimed solo records ever by any bassist and as a studio musician has played on over one thousand records. He's toured and recorded with artists as diverse as Joe Zawinul, Mike Brecker, Mary J. Blige and Madonna.
KENWOOD DENNARD: DRUMS - Woody, as he is affectionately known, is one of the world's top performing and recording drummers. The names of all the giants he's worked with is far too long to list here and reads like an encyclopedia of music icons in Jazz, Funk, Rock, Blues, Pop, and Soul: Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Greg Allman, Chet Atkins, Quincy Jones, Stanley Jordan, Dave Matthews, JacoPastorius, Charles Mingus, Edgar Winter, Joe Zawinul and on and on.
FERDI ARGENTI: KEYBOARDS - Hands down one of the finest and most versatile keyboardists you'll hear anywhere, Ferdi began his career performing throughout Europe as a pianist, keyboardist, vocalist, composer and arranger, playing with many of the finest Italian and American musicians, most notably Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Kenny Wheeler and the Artie Shaw band.
