Joe Satriani - Shapeshifting
Guitar great Joe Satriani is moving forward by taking you back. The album finds "Satch" rocking with a band that includes Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney, acclaimed drummer Kenny Aronoff and keyboardist Eric Caudieux. There's also guest turns from Prince's Lisa Coleman playing piano on two tracks, while Christopher Guest provides mandolin on a song. Satriani co-produced the Shapeshifting album with Jim Scott. The 13-track disc is headed up by the nimble and impressive guitar work on the instrumental single Nineteen Eighty.
