Joe Olnick - Defiant Grooves CD
Release date: 10.14.16
Changing musical gears and moving from recent ambient experiments back into the instrumental rock/groove/jam aisle, it's the highly anticipated follow-up to the Up All Night CD.
Soulful and funky, Joe's fifth album is a new collection of original music recorded in 2016.
This album was mastered by Grammy award winner Reuben Cohen of Lurssen Mastering in Burbank, CA for exceptional sound quality.
Guitarist Joe Olnick's music combines classic elements into new explorations of sound and rhythm. His albums are instrumental and improvisational, with an emphasis on jazz/rock/groove and ambient atmospheres. Seemingly random patterns are arranged into unique modern statements that communicate the soul in his art.
Massive funk grooves, rock guitar, abstract ambient, and quiet introspective compositions all reflect the wide-ranging tastes of his influences: Brian Eno, Miles Davis, Nels Cline, and Medeski, Martin & Wood.
The Greylock Glass on "Glendale Avenue" from Defiant Grooves: "Itís a little bit like what might happen if Eric Johnson sat down with the Allman Brothers and picked up where Led Zeppelin left off with "Over the Hills and Far Away."
