ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sundad, comprised of father and son guitarists, John Eurell Sr. and John Jr., and percussionist Chet Soares, is making their name as one of a new class of acoustic bands whose compositions and recordings are filled with beautiful rhythms, harmonies, and chord changes.

Their first CD, "Journey To Eternity", earned the trio nominations for 2005 “Best New Artist” and “Best Acoustic Instrumental Album” at New Age Reporter (NAR) and this release, "The Journey Continues", soars to new musical heights.

Bill Binkelman of New Age Reporter says:
“The trio known as Sundad (father-son team John Eurell, Sr. and John, Jr. and Chet Soares) serve up some tasty (and sometimes quite spicy) acoustic world/jazz fusion music on their second release, The Journey Continues. …..The Journey Continues is a true ensemble recording with no one person left behind in the shadows as all the players get a chance to shine, displaying both their musical technique from a technical standpoint as well as demonstrating ample artistic flair. Like all good world fusion music, one may catch a whiff now and then of direct influence, e.g. Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Spanish etc., but the music
itself represents a true hybrid, a melting pot if you will,
of assorted styles and flavors so that it all merges into a pleasing cross-cultural/genre-smash….

“Regardless of how one categorizes Sundad’s music and The Journey Continues, it’s evident these guys know how to play. With its jazz riffs, world beat spice, mixture of earthy/sensual and kinetic energizing rhythms, as well as enough guitar fireworks to fulfill any lover of the instrument, the trio’s latest release is almost certain to please acoustic instrumental music fans who seek an album which engages the listener’s body and mind. Kick up your feet, tap your toes, drum your fingers or just sit if that’s your preference, but the main thing to do is put this album in your CD player and enjoy what comes next.”

A Great Journey!
“The Journey Continues” is the follow-up to Sundad’s 2005 “Journey to Eternity,” which was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Instrumental Acoustic Album by New Age Reporter. Sundad is a father and son acoustic guitar duo, John Eurell Sr. and John Eurell Jr., and includes percussionist Chet Soares as well as several guest artists. They describe their music as “world fusion/new age music with a heavy dose of percussion,” which puts it in a nutshell. Rhythmic, joyous, and up-tempo, this is some mighty-fine finger-picking accompanied by Soares’ hand drums and light percussion. All of the music is original and is improvised to a large degree. The musicians are in complete synch with each other, making this a sophisticated yet very accessible and enjoyable listening experience.

The CD opens with “The Veil,” which has already won multiple awards. Light and airy, with some interesting chord and rhythmic changes, it’s a wonderful beginning. “Chet’s Favorite” steps up the energy level and lets the music soar with an infectious rhythm and free-flowing melody. “The Conquistador” is smooth as silk with a dreamy, slow Spanish dance feeling. Gorgeous! My favorite track is “East Meets West.” A sense of mystery as well as multiple ethnic influences make this piece a real standout. I also really like “The Midnight Express,” which features Dave Kline on violin. High energy and full of fun, this piece must be a blast in concert! From there, we cool off to the sensuous “Moonlight in Manhattan” - a beauty. Another favorite is “Dancing in the Park.” Some of the “percussion” in this is hand clapping, which heightens the carefree mood. You can almost feel the warm sunshine and smell the grass as the dancers move freely to the beat - a little picnic for the mind!

“The Journey Continues” is a wonderful musical expedition that will calm as well as energize. When musicians play this well together, the result is magic! Recommended!
