Reb Beach - "Cutting Loose" (audio)

Ο δίσκος των Reb Beach "A View From The Inside"
Ο Richard Earl "Reb" Beach Jr. (γνωστότερος ως Reb Beach) δεν νομίζω ότι χρειάζεται ιδιαίτερες συστάσεις (ή μήπως όχι;). Αμερικανός κιθαρίστας ενεργός από τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα μέχρι τις ημέρες μας.

Το ντεμπούτο του δισκογραφικά πραγματοποιήθηκε το 1986 στον δίσκο της Fiona "Beyond the Pale". (Ίσως εκεί γνωρίστηκε με τον Kip Winger -που κάνει τα δεύτερα φωνητικά στο album και μετέχει στην σύνθεση ενός τραγουδιού- κι αργότερα συνεργάστηκαν στους Winger.)

Την ίδια χρονιά μετέχει ως καλεσμένος στους δίσκους της Chaka Khan "Destiny" (παίζει κιθάρα στο τραγούδι "Drums") και του Howard Jones "One to One" (ως ένας από τους τέσσερις κιθαρίστες που έπαιξαν στο album). Η metal / rock καριέρα του ξεκινά με τους Winger συμμετέχοντας και στους έξι στουντιακούς δίσκους που κυκλοφόρησαν, από το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο του 1988 έως και το "Better Days Comin'" του 2014.

Τον ακούσαμε επίσης σε δύο δίσκους των Dokken ["Erase the Slate" (1999), "Live From the Sun" (2000)], ενώ αποτελεί μέλος των Whitesnake από το 2002 μέχρι και τις ημέρες μας με απολογισμό τέσσερα albums ["Good to Be Bad" (2008), "Forevermore" (2011), "The Purple Album" (2015), "Flesh and Blood" (2019)].

Το σωτήριο έτος 2020 "χτυπά" δισκογραφικά εις διπλούν! Αρχικά με το super group Black Swan και το ντεμπούτο τους ("Shake The World") που "βγήκε" τον περασμένο Φλεβάρη και πλέον με τον προσωπικό του (instrumental) δίσκο, ο οποίος φέρει τον τίτλο "A View From The Inside" και κυκλοφόρησε σήμερα.

Πρόκειται για το τρίτο solo album του Reb Beach στην καριέρα του καθώς προηγήθηκαν το "The Fusion Demos" (1993) και το "Masquerade" (2001).

Δελτίο τύπου: «Reb Beach has released his long in the works instrumental solo album, “A View From The Inside” via Frontiers Music Srl.

An album that showcases the dynamic talents of the guitar virtuoso, hard rock fans will be transported back to the days when giants like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani dominated the mainstream consciousness (and airwaves), while also simultaneously being shown a guitarist ever pushing himself forward into the future.

Reb Beach is one of the indisputable guitar giants of the current hard rock scene. His resume with ‘80s/’90s mega-stars Winger alone would earn him this distinction, but his legacy is cemented by his current membership and work with the legendary Whitesnake, his past efforts with Dokken, and his recent release with supergroup Black Swan, also featuring Jeff Pilson, Robin MacAuley, and Matt Starr.

Influenced by the legendary hard rockers of the ‘70s, Reb spent his teen years jamming along with the greats of that era like Aerosmith and Montrose, but it was when he discovered more progressive players like Steve Morse, Allan Holdsworth, and Larry Carlton that his musical world really opened up.

The complexity and the speed of the more prog style of playing was a unique challenge compared to the blues-based playing of most musicians of that era. The discovery of these players was ultimately the catalyst that drove his playing to the level he is now so well known to music fans the world over for.

Beach eventually graduated from his home practice space to the Berkeley School of Music, but after a couple of semesters he moved on and soon became one of the most sought-after session players in the music industry, working with such all-time great talents as Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Roger Daltrey, Chaka Kahn, Howard Jones, and Twisted Sister.

While living in NYC, he hooked up with his future bandmate, bassist and frontman Kip Winger. Reb and Kip formed the band Winger and the rest is history. The two proved to be incredible writing partners, crafting multiple platinum records that featured no less than six Top Forty singles with music that was commercial yet complex.

After Winger went on a hiatus in the ‘90s, Beach’s career continued thanks to collaborations with Alice Cooper, Dokken and Night Ranger and he debuted as a solo artist in 2002 with the album “Masquerade". Following the Winger reunion in the ‘00s, Reb heard that David Coverdale was looking for a new guitarist for Whitesnake.

He reached out to him and since 2003, Reb has toured the world with the band as well as released multiple albums with them, including “Good to Be Bad,” “Forevermore,” “The Purple Album,” and the recent “Flesh & Blood,” plus a number of live albums.

Reb Beach will now release his first instrumental album, but this is not a mere exercise of self-indulgence. It is the culmination of over 30 years of study and extremely hard work on his craft.

Fans of Steve Morse and Joe Satriani will find a lot to love in the 11 songs on offer here, but while there is certainly a lot of ear candy for the musician types, fans of hard rock in general will find a wealth of melodies and transcendent moments where the songs simply make you forget there are no vocals.»
