The Richie Hallebeek and Antti Kotikoski Band - Live in Helsinki, Finland, November 23, 2000 [FLAC]


Grabbed this from my "Obscure" stack, but any jazz-fusion guitar lovers should dig this show.  While the compositions are derivative of Holdsworth and the guitar players (Hallebeek from Holland and Kotikoski from Finland) could at times be mistaken for Allan Holdsworth, Gambale, Shawn Lane or Scott Henderson, they do have their own unique voice.  Despite the obscurity, this is well worth the download - especially if  you like "how did he do that?"-style fretboard pyrotechnics.  Not that this is a total shredfest. Many of the tunes are tightly structured and the playing very tasteful.

For more info on these gunslingers, check out the great website www.richiehallebeek.com where you'll find a ton of great interviews with other name guitarists by Hallebeek.  Also visit http://www.kotikoski.com for upcoming gigs in the Los Angeles area (Antti teaches at MIT/GIT). If you like this show and want more, be sure to hunt down the long OOP Richie & Antti CD "Generator" (on Mike Varney's now defunct Legato label) or the more recent Richie Hallebeek Project CD, which also features Brett Garsed and the late Shawn Lane on a couple of cuts. Enjoy! ~barkndog
