ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you're a fan of catchy melodic jazz/funk/blues/rock guitar, you'll love Mitch Gallagher's "Foundation"! A classically trained, NARAS (Grammy) winning composer in addition to being an incredible guitarist — and a well-known journalist, author, technology expert, and internet personality — Gallagher infused these five instrumental songs with heart, soul, melody, rhythm, and dynamics, and recorded them with a stellar cast of musicians including Keith Carlock (drums — Steely Dan, Mike Stern, Sting, Toto), Michael Whittaker (keyboards — well-known L.A. and Nashville session musician, film/TV composer), and Adam Nitti (bass — Nashville session musician, Michael McDonald, Dave Weckl, Kenny Loggins, Carrie Underwood). Special guests include Supertramp/solo artist/L.A. master session guitarist Carl Verheyen and Nashville rising star/session ace Tyler Summers on saxophone, as well as a powerhouse horn section featuring Nashville's best!

Because these songs were created first and foremost as musical stories/compositions, rather than just as platforms for "shredding," they're hummable, memorable, and stand up to repeated listening -- you'll return to listen to "Foundation" again and again! All of the musicians perform within the framework of the song — contributing emotional colors and dynamics, rather than simply showing off. Every part, every performance, every note is integral to the arrangements and enhances the whole.

Recorded and mixed with audiophile sound quality at Sweetwater Studios and Oceanway Nashville Studios, "Foundation" delivers a pure, organic presentation of top musicians creating music. Minimal processing was used on the tracks, and only the finest equipment was employed, resulting in a recording that feels and sounds natural. Scott Hull at Masterdisk put the finishing touches on the sonics, creating an incredible listener experience focused on the tones, compositions, and performances. You'll feel like you're in the best room around, listening to great players performing just for you.
