ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reeves Gabrels is a Grammy-nominated guitarist/vocalist and songwriter/producer who is lead guitarist for The Cure and a member of that band (since 2012). He sustained a musical partnership with David Bowie for well over a decade including all of the 1990s--and also since 1995 has produced five albums under his own name as well as several noted collaborations. Gabrels is known for his aggressive guitar style that combines the visceral energy of rock, the harmonic sophistication of jazz, the emotional honesty of blues and country, and an ear for the unusual.

ULYSSES (Della Notte) was the second full-length solo album for Gabrels. It appeared originally in 1999 as a then-pioneering digital-only release that comprised eight songs and won a Yahoo! Internet award. E-Magine Entertainment then put it out on CD in 2000, adding a ninth track. After a hiatus of several years in availability, the rights reverted to the artist and the album is now being offered again for digital download and on CD.

Gabrels' inventive style on guitar and ironic style in writing songs--with lyrics by turns acerbic, by turns sweet--both shine in this recording. ULYSSES (Della Notte) is first and foremost a collection of finely crafted songs, all of which organically incorporate genre-bending, mind-bending guitar playing as well. All nine songs feature Gabrels on vocals, and some in addition include notable guest appearances by talented musical colleagues.

"Jewel" is one of these special tracks: it combines vocals by Gabrels with Frank Black (Pixies), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and David Bowie. "Yesterday's Gone" is a beautiful ballad sung by Robert Smith of The Cure and representing a dreamy songwriting collaboration for Gabrels and Smith, who at the time were simply friends. It would take another fifteen years for then to become band mates.

"There hasn't been a collection of guitar sounds this inventive, extreme, creepy and cool on a rock album since Hendrix died," wrote Ted Drozdowski in the Boston Phoenix about ULYSSES (Della Notte).
