T Lavitz
Pianist/keyboardist T Lavitz's School of the Arts (Magnatude, 2007) brings together guitarists Steve Morse and Frank Gambale, drummer Dave Weckl, bassist John Patitucci and violinist Jerry Goodman. It's a mouth-watering line-up which produces some real sparks, with its exhilarating unison playing and virtuoso performances.

Where School of the Arts marks a departure from Lavitz's recorded output so far is that this is an all-acoustic affair. Imagine a hybrid of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Chick Corea Electric Band and the Dixie Dregs, unplugged, and you may get an idea of the music on offer.

T Lavitz talks about this album with AAJ's Ian Patterson, and recalls close encounters with the Grateful Dead, mega-bands in the school cafeteria and more.
