Prominent virtuoso-guitarist Roman Miroshnichenko presents his new album ‘The Sixth Sense’ he recorded latest spring-summer with his long time band, which includes Val Chernook on drums and Oleg Kanakov on bass.
He is also joined by world renown special guests: Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck), Charlie Bisharat (Grammy Winner), Bunny Brunel (Grammy-nominee, CAB, RTF), Paul Wertico (7-time Grammy winner, Pat Metheny), Gary Husband (John Mclaughlin, Gary Moore, Allan Holdsworth), Dominique DiPiazza (John Mclaughlin), Frank Colon (Manhattan Transfer), Gumbi Ortiz (world renown percussionist, Al Di Meola), Matt Laurent (Notre-Dame de Paris), Luis Alicea (drummer for Al Di Meola).
Among with Roman’s new 8 compositions album included an electric version of Henrik Andersen's Award-winning (“Best World Traditional Song” of the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards) composition “Moon Over Tanjore” and 2-time Latin Grammy winning composer and producer Daniel Figueiredo’s piece “Planar”, feat. Rannieri Oliveira(piano) and St.Peterburg Studio Symphonic Orchetra.
"Hey Roman! Great track! Amazing tone and phrasing! Really cool stuff! Good to see you guys making good use of the quarantine!" - Steve Vai kindly noted about one of new album’s compositions “IsoBoogie”, featuring the ‘Guitar Queen’ Jennifer Batten.
"When one listens to the powerful guitar playing of Roman Miroschnichenko, it is easy to be reminded of Al DiMeola and John McLaughlin during his Mahavishnu days, but it soon becomes apparent that Miroschnichenko has his own sound within fusion, setting the standard for XXI century fusion guitar. The Sixth Sense is an impressive effort that can either be an introduction to the talents of Roman Miroschnichenko for some listeners, or be a prized acquisition for the guitarist’s many fans."
/Scott Yanow, jazz journalist/historian and author of 11 books including The Great Jazz Guitarists/
"Certainly an ideal listen for those with an ear for guitar music in the area of jazz and the many genres related to rock, with 6 string chops like this, it won’t be long until Miroshnichenko is a name familiar around the globe."
