The original “alien” is back. Joe Satriani’s 1987 record Surfing with the Alien rewrote the rulebook when it came to instrumental albums by guitar virtuosos, and he’s never looked back (well, unless you count remastering Surfing with the Alien for a 1999 release!). Several successful solo albums and tours have followed Alien, along with tours with Mick Jagger, Deep Purple and G3, the guitar summit that has featured Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson and former Satriani student Steve Vai (Satriani has also instructed Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and jazz fusionist Charlie Hunter, among others).

With the boundless creativity and imagination Satriani brings to his guitar and his songs, he has amassed a huge following and sold over 3.3 million units in North America alone. Last November’s G3 CD & DVD (recorded live in Tokyo) was released to rave reviews. His latest, Super Colossal, is another feather in his cap, marked by the guitarist’s usual pizzazz, fluidity and timelessness and, in the words of an reviewer, “compositions constructed by a master’s sense of harmony, melody and rhythm.”
