"Ascension" With Hackett for Dave Kerzner album "New World" by Dave Kerzner published on 2014/06/06 19:32:47 +0000 "All your thoughts, all your fears, all the logic disappears..." The album is now available for pre-order exclusively from eSoundz: http://www.esoundz.com/details.php?ProductID=5336 (Standard CD + MP3) Limited Edition 3 CD Bundle: http://www.esoundz.com/details.php?ProductID=5337 (Standard and Deluxe Edition 3 CDs + MP3) I'm very excited to share this clip with you because it features a guest guitar performance from Steve Hackett, legendary guitarist from the band Genesis! I did some production assistance and keyboards on his Genesis Revisited album (which was a complete honor) and to "return the favor" he offered to play on my first ever solo album! (Don't tell him that he owed me no favor as the favor was letting me play on his album in the first place!). I'm such a fan of his playing and of Steve himself. He and Jo and Roger and his whole band have been so cool to be around... I could go on and I will when I get a proper blog. So, this is part of the closing track on my album which is the book-end to the "rock opera" that starts off the album. The title of this section of the song is "Ascension". This of course is just a rough work in progress mix for now to get a taste of what the album is going to be like. If you're into "old Genesis" there are some tips of the hat in that direction especially having Steve on board. But there are also people who have played with Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, It Bites, Big Big Train, Alan Parsons Project, Chicago and other bands all over the album. If you want to hear classic rock and Prog in a modern musical context then I'm making this record for you! That's what I like myself!

It has Nick D'Virgilio on drums who I used to play with in Kevin Gilbert's Thud. So many great players and songs filled with genuine emotion.
