An Evening with John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess

November 14, 2009 § Leave a comment

I’d like to recommend this album, called, “An Evening with John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess” to y’all.As the name indicates,the songs are composed and performed by John Petrucci(on guitars) and Jordan Rudess(on keys),who both are also a part of the band DreamTheater. The album was recorded during a live performance in 2000 and was initially available only in limited numbers.
But when guitar virtuoso Steve vai first heard it, he was so impressed by it, that, he decided to release it under his own label ‘Favored Nations’.
Both the artists,on the album, are immensely talented and go along well together, which makes the songs mentally stimulating and gives you “an unforgettable experience”.
Jordan Rudess’s playing is deep and delightful and sometimes seems as though there are multiple keyboardists on the record.Petrucci, sticks to his style influenced from Al di Meola and provides a wonderful accompaniment to Rudess.Their intense interplay makes this album very entertaining.You’ll savor the experience
Here’s the order in which you might want to hear:
1.From Within
2.Black Ice
4.State of Grace
5.Fife and Drum
6.Hang 11
7.The Rena Song
8.From here on listen in any order..three more songs for the record.
