Guitar Virtuoso Marcelo Paganini Releases Video In Support Of Critically Acclaimed New Album '2012 Space Traffic Jam'

Paris, France - Marcelo Paganini, now a proud endorser of Dean Markley Strings, Intex Cables and Godin Guitars, is releasing today the video of the song “B4Ever Now” from his critically acclaimed album '2012 Space Traffic Jam' released on the 25th of January 2014. Recorded at Eastcote Studios in London with Marcelo Paganini on vocals, guitars and keys, Eumir Deodato on keyboards, Marc Madoré on bass, and Gary Husband on drums.

Watch the video here:

Along with Guitar Club Magazine in Italy, Marcelo was recently featured in Guitar Player magazine (US), where editor Micheal Molenda says, “Paganini certainly appears to move through his music career as one of the enchanted. For his debut CD, 2012 Space Traffic Jam - which pretty much came out of nowhere - he managed to bring heavy hitters Gary Husband (John Mc Laughlin, Allan Holdsworth, Robin Trower), Eumir Deodato, Tony Kaye (Yes) and Billy Sherwood (Yes, Circa) into the studio to perform on ten of his prog-rock compositions.”

The album '2012 Space Traffic Jam', which was released on January 25, 2014 was written in the stars, and had to happen, no matter how impossible it seemed to be. To make the impossible possible is Marcelo Paganini's full time job. He was called a crazy man, a fool, a dreamer... but the album now is a reality. Recorded Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 at Phil Bagenal's Eastcote Studios in London by George Murphy, this is a big international production most indie labels only dream about. Your band is just as good as your drummer: Gary Husband plays drums on the entire album. Eumir Deodato plays keys on three songs. Marc Madore plays bass on nine songs. And two ex-YES members (now in CIRCA:) Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood play on the song “Somewhere Somehow”.

Along with substantial airplay, the new album has been receiving rave reviews worldwide:

“South American composer, producer, film maker, singer, poet, writer, journalist and actor, Marcelo Paganini has one hell of a CV...” - Classic Rock Presents Prog Magazine (UK)

“ '2012 Space Traffic Jam' is an album,at least surreal. It is a complex and almost indescriptible cacophonic and schizofrenic mix of jazz, fusion, prog rock and metal.” - Via Nocturna (Portugal)

“Possibly the somewhat oblique overall effect is simply due to the slightly oblique personality of the band leader. Crucial to the overall impression are also the virtuoso propelling drumming of Husband and boisterous guitar solos of Paganini...highly recommended” - Siggy Zielinski - Babyblaue-Seiten (Germany)

“Marcelo Paganni is on par with any rock guitarist on the planet... '2012 Space Traffic Jam' is that unique release that sounds like a classic from thirty years ago but can still easily pass for a fresh release today. This is the new sound for prog rock enthusiasts!” - Brent Black, Critical Jazz (US)

“A feast for lovers of progressive ambient rock.” - Patrick Van de Wiele, Keys and chords (Belgium)

“An unstoppable and technical prog that highlights individual talents serving structurally solid compositions, where some craziness can happen once in a while.” - François Becquart, Musique in Belgium (Belgium)

“I live in a world where I’m not unfamiliar with oddities, but here comes a CD of French / Brazilian prog rock with fusion vibes. Read that sentence and weep.” - Stuart Hamilton, The Rocker (UK)

“The really striking feature in MARCELO PAGANINI sound in the interplay with the melancholy. '2012 Space Traffic Jam' course , however, is exactly what you would expect - with spiritual jazz fusion - attitude - interesting...The best of this sound will still be enjoying live - my word on it!” - Andreas Kummer, Medicine-Mag (German)

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…
