The Inner Galactic Fusion Experience
After recording the "Tilt" CD with fellow jazz/metal guitarist Greg Howe, Richie Kotzen remained in a fusion head space for a while and decided to record a solo CD in the jazz/fusion vein, hence "The Inner Galactic Fusion Experience". To further himself in the fusion style, he called up super bassist Jeff Berlin to play on a few tracks. Drummer Greg Bissonette added his expertise as well, and the combination of these musicians and the songs created a musical bed for what Kotzen calls his most inspired guitar performance to date. What is unusual is the inclusion of the last two tracks, "Tramp", a vocal, blues/rock number and "Last Words" a vocal ballad of sorts. The first seven tracks however, definately fall into the high-tech fusion model and are impressively executed, especially "Dose" and "Stark".
