Album Notes
The Shake Trio is a companion release to the original studio version of the album - Shake from Kevin Burnes. The music was originally performed and recorded live for an “on-air” internet broadcast. The music has a hint of flavorings from the “old-school" recordings of Jimi Hendrix and the mid 1960’s John Coltrane recordings and being a live performance it keeps the songs and improvisations as honest as they can be. The music was recorded direct to 2-Track so there were no over-dubs or edits. Simply just the truth!

Guitarist Kevin Burnes, drummer Keny Ruyter, and bass player Patrick Recob come together and create a very new and unique sound!

Kevin Burnes, a solo guitarist, incorporates a wildly varying eclectic-electric jazz sound that overflows with energy and creativity. From sweeping melodies, terrorizing solos and subtly fingered accompaniments this live version of the studio album really has an awesome vibe!

Keny Ruyter's dynamic drums ooze Latin influences as well as stoic funk leanings. Keny turns the drum-set into a harmonic instrument.

Bass player Patrick Recob brings it all together with a swift and solid pummeling in the low end.

"This trio will make you tremble with joy!".....HGMusic

"....sounds like Jimi Hendrix met up with John Coltrane.".....EastCoastBands

“This instrumental group, with a taste for improvisation, combines monster individual chops with a down-to business sensibility making you want to intellectualize their music while you shake your butt. My first thought on hearing their music was that Kevin and the crew manage to walk all over the conventional lines drawn when defining musical genres.”…Matt Crowner, UnSung Hero

Note: Some of the music on this recording also appeared on another release titled SHAKE from Kevin Burnes. While the song titles are the same don’t let the names fool you. This is an entirely different recording and performance. After an honest listening it might be worth owning both!

Kevin, formally the guitarist with acts such as the band Dokken and singer-songwriter Joe Lynn Turner, has raised the bar in the guitar instrumental genre.
