Read "Guitarist Mike Seal" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Guitarist Mike Seal first caught my attention at the end of 2014 as part of the Jeff Sipe Trio. At that time I described him as an extraordinarily talented young musician, an assessment shared by many, including the legendary dobro virtuoso Jerry Douglas.

This is a modern electric trio in the same vein as bassist Jonas Hellborg's trio with guitarist Shawn Lane and drummer Jeff Sipe, guitarist Alex Machacek's trio with 5-string electric bassist Matthew Garrison (and Sipe again), ...

(Living the Dream)

Read "(Living the Dream)" reviewed by John Kelman

While he's been living in Los Angeles for many years, Alex Machacek clearly values longterm musical relationships.

Top Ten Guitarists Who Left Us Too Soon

Read "Top Ten Guitarists Who Left Us Too Soon" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Ranking musicians is a hopelessly flawed endeavor. It's about as meaningful as having a list of the top ten best tasting foods. Taste is highly individualized, influenced by mood, familiarity, and the way in which multiple variables interact. One person's escargot is someone else's slice of Chicago style pizza.

Read "Jeff Sipe Trio featuring Mike Seal and Taylor Lee" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Drummer Jeff Sipe was a member of Colonel Bruce Hampton's Aquarium Rescue Unit and has played with many other musicians. But probably his most visible association was the power trio with Jonas Hellborg and Shawn Lane, followed by a more recent trio with guitarist Alex Machacek. So he is clearly very comfortable in an improvising rock/jazz ...
