Beyond The Thunder
Let Neal Schon take you beyond the frenzy of the storm to a quieter place, as the renowned guitarist of Journey and Santana explores new textures in this lush, melodic album. ""Beyond The Thunder"," says Schon, "is one of the best things I've done." With quiet power, Neal glides through cool jazz licks, worldbeat rhythms and soulful songs like "Send Me An Angel." As lead guitarist with the band Journey, Neal's dazzling guitar work was legendary. With his debut Higher Octave Music album, he creates a lush and lyrical sound that still throws off sparks! "Beyond The Thunder" stirs the soul with emotional, yet technical playing that guitarist and non-guitarists alike will come back to again and again.
