Prominent guitar virtuoso and producer Roman Miroshnichenko presents his new material Roman Miroshnichenko plays Stas Namin
, which includes Miroshnichenko's original arrangements of six selected pieces and melodies originally composed by renown producer Stas Namin, who's mostly known as Gorky Park rock-band founder.
When one listens to the powerful guitar playing of Roman Miroschnichenko, it is easy to be reminded of Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin during his Mahavishnu period, but it soon becomes apparent that Miroschnichenko has his own fusion sound, setting the standard for XXI century fusion guitar. While he is never shy to cut loose, he also uses subtlety, mood variations and creativity throughout, mixing together tight arrangements with pure spontaneity," noted jazz journalist Scott Yanow.
Building on the successful formula that birthed Roman’s previous albums he returned to the studio with his long-time friends, such renowned musicians as multiple Grammy-nominee Mike Stern
(guitarist), Jennifer Batten (guitarist from Michael Jackson's World Tours), violinist Charlie Bisharat
(former member of the band Shadowfax), London Symphony Orchestra (recorded at Abbey Road Studio), Dominique di Piazza
trio), Henrik Andersen, Frank Colon
(Manhattan Transfer), Gumbi Ortiz
from the Al Di Meola
band, Djivan Gasparyan
along with soloists from the Vladimir String Orchestra.
