10:30AM EST | comments (12) |

UPDATE - 1/29@8:31AM: Here's part 2 of the in-studio session with Big Al.

DB3After releasing a series of instrumental singles back in 2011 including Hollowbody, Sonar and Disappearance, the Alex Lifeson-produced David Barrett Trio is set to release their first full-length studio album this year. The album is produced by Alex Lifeson, Rich Chycki, and Alan Parsons, and features Toronto musicians David Barrett (guitars), Jason Farrar (bass) and Alexander Sascha Tukatsch (drums). Financing for the production was done solely with the help of crowdfunding via RocketHub, and the graciousness of the band's producers, engineer and art house. On Friday they posted the video for the album's opening track Dive and just this morning they posted some in-studio footage with Alex Lifeson. In this video Alex conducts a pre-production session with the band as they develop the ending for Great Eastern Sun, the last track on the album:

Be sure to keep an eye on the band's Facebook page and their new website for all the latest updates.

I like it as "okay" (but would have been much better w/ Jon.
But Geoff Downes will never come near half the keys Rick Wakeman has laid down, so comparisons are irrelevant here.
"Drama" is an 80's LP but you would never know sign of the "D"(isco) word
and Chris plays like he's reinventing his own style (if that makes any sense)
Trevor Horn cannot touch Jon's talent, but his voice is unique & somewhat of the same style.
It might take a few listens (it took me a couple years to appreciate somebody else trying to fill Jon's moccasins) although he really isnt trying to...
At the end of a listen, it is one of my favorite (non-70's) Yes LP's
The original recording is very good, speaking somewhat as an audiophile...

Take care - Shiny side always up on roadtrips

Hey letterj...thx for the well wishes. Yeah, the collaboration could be called "Fish out of Lerxst" or something-haha. As far as your Trevor reference, talking about 'Drama'? I don't own it, but am familiar. What do you think of their new "Fly from Here"? I actually have a mini road trip this weekend, so i might delve into that. Waiting patiently for summer dates, as are a lot of us on here.

Hows my favorite RUSH - fan - stranger ?
Hope all's good w/ you & yours
Do you have the Yes Lp (minus J. Anderson, plus Trevor Horn ?
Chris at his very best (and no slouching from Steve either)
Trevor has quite the classic timeless voice compared to D. Benoit w/o a doubt
I am sure you are familiar w/ it...quite a enjoyable CD for a road-trip
Take care
just another one of your RUSH brothers

Man, thinking about it Chris and Alex could come up with enough jams in an hour to make a whole LP...

This must have been recorded before Big Al got the new hair piece.

#3-jaeger...there is a photo taken by Tasic Dragan of Chris Squire that is a DEAD RINGER for Alex....with a bit fuller hair! Expression and everything, on stage. Having a hard time getting it to link, i'll put it up for you soon. I agree with you.

Love it! (Is it just me, or is Alex looking more like Chris Squire every day. :) )
