Live to 2 track, contemporary electric/acoustic rock! Recorded with an almost jazz approach with lots of room for experimentation & improvisation. Featuring great instrumental solos & awesome sonics, Sajko’s “Page” deserves a listen! Fans of classic rock like Zappa, Cream, John Hiatt & King Crimson will dig this one.
Remember a time when Rock & Roll told an intimate story layered in harmonic textures, a resolution of the clash between acoustic & electric, inside & out? Sjako! reports from that borderline. The roots are of blues, folk, & jazz grown into progressive rock forms; the resonance of things past in uncharted waters. Live & raw, a fully amped “unplugged” set, this disc captures the essence of being on the stage within the envelope that the musicians are spinning. In the beginning there were no boundaries between the band & the audience, & so it is once again.
