ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Leap Of Face is the 2006 release from West Australian master guitarist Graham Greene, and marks a return to the massive rock grooves and guitar fireworks he is best known for in The West.

Thirteen selected tracks of essential Greene guitar including the award-winning 'Impressive Hair', Leap Of Face features the world recording debut of Graham's new custom signature series guitars, the Ormsby GG6 six-string and GG7 seven-string.

Digging deep back into his hard rock muse, Greene has produced an album that redefines the guitarist's passion for his instrument as well as his direction in his chosen craft.

Soaring melodies meet rock hard grooves and technical artistry as the Guitar Shaman from Oz explores emotions from the tender to the savage, moods from the extreme to the ridiculous, all with his individual flair and humour.

With Leap Of Face, Graham Greene releases his finest musical work to date.

• • • •

In recording Leap Of Face, Graham wanted to make it clear to all who heard the album that he still knew how to rock. After the ambient rock vibe of 2004's Gaia Rising, the time was right for a return to his hard rock roots.
"It was time to blow out a few cobwebs" said the guitarist, "and show everyone - myself included - that I still had all the chops after sorting my hand out." (Greene spent 2003 regaining the use of two left-hand fingers affected by nerve damage)
The resulting tracks were inspired by a combination of new influences - a more relaxed outlook on music, a new live band, and a selection of new guitars, including the GG6 and GG7.

With the exception of wife Donna's vocals on Fire In Your Liberty, all the tracks on the album were performed by Graham and recorded in their home studio, The Inspiration Room. While 'Fire' is in a nu-metal groove, the instrumentals range from the hard funk rock of The Art Of War, through the neo-classical flash and panache of Hell And Bach to the subterranean seven-string grooves and unearthly talkbox solo in The Vowels Of The Earth. The album's epic closer is the 6:22 Sahara Moon, a blend of Eastern and Western grooves and melodies which was showcased in Graham's very first performance as a soloist back in 1994, and today remains a GG classic, preserved forever on Leap Of Face.

CD Review
THE Satriani of the South, Perth guitarist Graham Greene defied the odds (namely a shoulder injury and nerve damage in his hand) to put together this brilliant album, all instrumental bar 'Fire In Your Liberty', which features his wife Donna on vocals. As for the rest, Greene plays every instrument.

Mixing soaring melodic '80s-style lead with frenzied tapping, neo-classical displays of fret-wizardry ("Hell And Bach"), stabbing harmonics and talk box ("Vowels Of The Earth"). Greene travels with flair and grace through a variety of styles, from 'ballads' to metal and blues ("CJ's Blues"), and comes out the other side a certified rock god.

Excelente!
A lo que interpreto al escuchar a Graham Greene en su primer tema “The inaccurate conception” es que Graham se levanto un día y dijo “hoy voy a tocar mejor que (Joe) Satriani y (Steve) Vai juntos, le voy a poner toda la misma pasión que ellos le ponen a la guitarra, se va a llamar “Leap of face” y que Dios perdone a aquellos que no logren escuchar esto porque les va a volar la cabeza!!”, y así es, me vuela la cabeza.
Graham es un virtuoso de las 6 y 7 cuerdas; tengo que aclarar que soy un ex fanático de los cds instrumentales?
“Leap of face” ayuda a olvidar mi pasado de no admirador de los músicos que no aportan vos a las canciones, simplemente porque se nota un disco repleto de garra, pasión, virtuosidad, buen gusto y hasta nos regala un temita cantado por Donna Greene (supongo que su esposa).
Convengamos que en este album Graham no solo interpreta la guitarra, sino cada instrumento que van a apreciar, eso no solo lo hace virtuoso sino multiinstrumentista.
Australiano, compartió escenario con Bon Jovi, Meat Loaf y Gregg Bissonette (batero de David Lee Roth y compañero de banda de Steve Vai), ademas de ganador de los West Australian Awards como mejor guitarrista.
Volviendo a tercera grabacion “Leap of face”, contiene 13 canciones en las que pongo énfasis “The vowels of the earth”, “Raven’s eve pt.1” y “Fire in your liberty” cual canta Donna. En muchos de sus pasajes me recuerda aquellos programas de deportes como ski, snowboard, surf que suelen poner este tipo de temas de fondo.
No me sorprende encontrarme con buena calidad musical proveniente del país de “down under” (como llaman a la isla), Graham Greene es una evidencia viva y presente de que el hard rock –metal posee un talento increíble por allá y ojala quienes lean esto tengan la chance de ver por sus propios ojos a Graham tocando en vivo o por lo menos disfrutar este magnifico album.
