Album Notes
Kevin Burnes has raised the bar in the guitar instrumental genre. With sweeping melodies, terrorizing solos and subtly fingered nylon string accompaniments Kevin serves up a wildly varying eclectic-electric jazz sound that overflows with energy and creativity. This is a break through instrumental release with a very distinctive flavor! Kevin has performed and recorded with countless artists and acts. Formally the guitarist with acts such as the band Dokken and singer-songwriter Joe Lynn Turner, among others.

The Music -

Accompanied by drummer Keny Ruyter, bass player Mike Cykoski and a host of others, Kevin has come out with his long awaited debut CD release - SHAKE.

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 Mike Cykoski brings it all together with a swift pummeling in the low end. With additional tones from:

Additional Musicians -

Dave Finnel - Trumpet (String Cheese Incident, All Mighty Senators)
Frank Mitchell - Sax (All Mighty Senators)
Bronson Lee - Rhodes
Terry Marshall - Piano
Francis Thompson - Marimba (Stickman)
Matt Belzer - Sax
Zeljko Zuber - Bass (Hari Mata Hari)

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

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

These guys must be shaking with anticipation at the possibilities that lie ahead! What a great debut!

"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

If you like this check out the companion releases of Shake - "Deluxe Edition" and The Shake Trio.

The "Deluxe Edition" of Shake features two additional tracks that were not included on the original release. The two songs feature Zeljko Zuber playing bass guitar on alternate versions of both Stride and Birdsong. The Alternate Take versions were both recorded during the same recording sessions as the original album release. Both songs offer a very different color and attitude from the originals, as well as have received a fresh new mix and master from Kevin Burnes.

The Shake Trio was originally performed and recorded live for an “on-air” internet broadcast. Featuring Kevin with the addition of bassist Patrick Recob signing on with Keny Ruyter on drum set. 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!
