A Brilliant Fusion of Rock & Jazz Guitar
The Fallout Shelter - 61 Endicott Street, Norwood, MA, 02062
Julien and his band have just released their third album, Trance Groove, which showcases Julien's strongest playing and writing to date. The textures, grooves, and sounds are rooted in blues/rock and funk while interplay of the musicians, vivid harmony, chromatic sensibility, and
intertwining themes reveal high level jazz players displaying a rare marriage of virtuosity and musicality.
"Exquisite tones, masterful execution and innate soulfulness drive this jazzy, funky, bluesy, Sco-and-Beck-meet-Hendrix-for-drinks-at-the-Harvard-Psychedelic-Club instrumental joyride" - Guitar Player Magazine -
"Julien Kasper may be hard to "categorize" for blues fans, because he doesn't "sound like" anybody. Instead, he takes an intellectual look at all
styles of music and combines them to produce a sound uniquely his own. There are soaring runs reminiscent of Sixties' psychedelia, jazz-tinged riffs that would make Charlie Christian smile, and sonic rock swirls and techniques that any fan of Cream or The Yardbirds could relate to. That's why "Trance Groove" is such an enjoyable listen---there's something here for all music fans to enjoy!" - Sheryl Crow - Nashville Blues Society -
No matter the source Julien Kasper gets rave reviews for his creativity, ability to expand and bend genre and his complete mastery of the guitar. His shows are always a clinic on how to master an instrument whether himself or his rhythm section of Jesse Williams on bass and Zac Casher on drums. This is a holy triumvirate of Berklee School of Music masters!!
