ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Leon Muhudinov is an eclectic Guitarist-Composer-Teacher from the NJ/NYC area. Described as "an artist of some well earned name recognition" and "one of the most versatile guitarists around" by 20th Century Guitar Magazine, his musical explorations include beautiful classical guitar repertoire, exotic world music, progrock, as well as cinematic scores for film/tv. He is also founder of progrock group The Adventures of Leonid featuring veteran drummer Mad Mike Cullens (Chuck Berry, Mick Taylor). His music can be found on iTunes, CDBaby, and most other stores.

Formed in 2004, The Adventures Of Leonid is a group which features a rotating lineup of friends and great musicians on various projects in the NJ/NYC area. AoL’s self-titled debut was released in 2005 on Mad Hands Records. The album was acclaimed by fans and critics alike for its eclectic composition, exciting virtuosity, romanticism and quirkiness. Journalist Dmitry Epstein called it “a highly enjoyable record of rare elegance.”

Leon is also prolific composer, writing in a wide range of styles including classical guitar, orchestral, chamber music, and progrock. In 2011, he was featured as a segment composer for the series Project Oliver. An arranger and transcriber of popular songs and piano music for classical guitar, most recent transcriptions include the Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby, as well as Debussy’s Clair de Lune, transcribed for two guitars.

Recently, Leon was selected by Roger Taylor, drummer of Queen, as a semi-finalist for their Queen Extravaganza Tour. He is also featured on the upcoming Van Halen Tribute album which includes current/former members of Aerosmith, Journey, Black Sabbath, Dio, and Yngwie Malmsteen band released on Versailles Records 2012. Leon will also be featured on their Guitar Wizards compilation which will be out 2013.

An active performer and recording artist/session musician, Leon's music has been featured internationally on numerous radio stations, podcasts, and film. His versatility as a session guitarist has led to a wide range of studio work and collaborations with some great musicians/projects.

An experienced and dedicated guitar teacher, Leon maintains a busy schedule of students of all ages and skill levels, beginners to advanced players.
