BGI is BACK!
After a close-to-10-year hiatus,
we’re proud to announce that BGI Records is up and running again,
and releasing some great music!
Following up on the 2 critically acclaimed Brazilian Jazz recordings by Ben Sher “TudoBem” and “Please Take Me to Brasil” we’ve released another one by Ben. Tempestade features some all-star jazz and Brazilian musicians: pianists Helio Alves (pianist with Joyce and Rosa Pasos) and Gary Fisher, drummers Vanderlei Periera and Sylvia Cuenca, and special guest Donny McCaslin, the featured saxophonist on David Bowie’s last recording Dark Star.
RETROLUTION 9: GUITAR SUMMIT
East meets West: cool jazz guy meets hot rocker! Ben Sher and Rowan Robertson team up on a recording that pays tribute to guitar heroes and great guitar tracks of the 70’s: the Allman Brothers, Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana, Blue Oyster Cult, etc.
Featuring Phil Chen on bass ( Phil was the bass player on the original Jeff Beck classic “Freeway Jam” . We’ve reworked this one, with Phil doing his thing paying homage to the original! ) drummer Matt Sanesi, and keyboardist Matt Rohde (Jane’s Addiction)
