Gabor Lesko‘s new albumFingerfusion Project demonstrates perfectly the artist’s talent as a producer and guitarist. It takes all the best elements of Jazz, Prog and Rock, blending them seamlessly to create, in his own words, some of the finest work of his career! One of the tracks from the album ‘Faith and Glory’ even made Jazz FM’s ‘Track of the Week’ recently – a testament to the album’s innovative genius.
Gabor’s guitar talents are also undeniable (he has even pioneered his own form of sweep picking without a plectrum) and this album is full of thoughtful composition. It’s well worth a listen.
Not to mention the fact that Gabor pulled together an all-star band for the album: Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, Joe Satriani, Gary Moore among others), Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets, Blackjack, Ronnie Wood), Mario Guarini (bass player on many Italian TV shows), Andrea Cocilovo, Eric Marienthal (Chick Corea Elektric Band) and Chad Wackerman (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Andy Summers).
