Alex Machacek


The Story
Nine new compostions from Austrian guitarist Alex Machacek, ["[SIC]""[SIC]""[SIC]"] features sensational drummer Terry Bozzio, as well as Austrian young guns, Mario Lackner and Herbert Pirker on drums, Raphael Preuschl on upright bass, and "[SIC]"umitra Nanjunda on one vocal cut. Jazz writer Bill Milkowski penned, "Over the course of a whole lifetime as a passionate observer and chronicler of the music scene, with a particularly keen interest in guitarists of all stripes, "[SIC]" have been blown away innumerable times by extraordinary players who bring something remarkable and personal to the table. Alex Machacek is one such extraordinary talent. "[SIC]"ombining jaw-dropping technique with a fertile imagination and a playful sense of humor, the Austrian six-string phenom has concocted an audaciously brilliant manifesto in ["[SIC]""[SIC]""[SIC]"]. "[SIC]"magine a composite of Allan Holdsworth's stunning legato chops and advanced harmonic language with Mike Keneally's exacting virtuosity and Frank Zappa's fiercely uncompromising "difficult music" and you're getting close to where this visionary new talent is currently operating."
