Shane Theriot — Still Motion (May 1, 2017)

                    Shane Theriot — Still Motion (May 1, 2017)  Shane Theriot — Still Motion (May 1, 2017)•→        Shane is a master on guitar and his techniques are flawless. But, There are few highs (songs that move you) on this cd. Technique is one thing but soul is another. If you like Shane it’s worth the purchase price for your collection but don’t look for big things. (Robert) Theriot’s latest original recording, focused around the concept of the trio. While keeping it funky and sophisticated, this record is also full of space and beautiful guitar work. Hear why Guitar Player Magazine called it “a beautiful record that’s rich with dynamics, grooves and inventive playing — all with room to breathe. Theriot’s big tones and unexpected note choices are the glue that holds it all together..” Featuring three rhythm sections — Los Angeles (Jim Keltner drums), New Orleans (Johnny Vidacovich drums, James Singleton upright bass) and Austin, (Kirk Covington drums, Nate Wood bass, Chris Maresh bass).
•→        American guitarist, composer and Grammy award winning producer.  Jazzy, moody and adventurous, it’s the next step in the evolution of a world~class guitarist that does his influences proud.

LYRICS
At the end of the day
The Light is spent
If only for a while
But first night rules
and stars will shine
illuminate our daily grind
At the end of the day
the task is done
if only for a while
one more chance to start anew
when dawn brings on it’s smile
Review
By GLENN ASTARITA, July 7, 2017. Score: ***½
•→        Hailing from New Orleans, guitarist and producer Shane Theriot is a solo artist and upper~echelon session ace amid his stints with Hall & Oates, Ben Folds, and the Neville Brothers as the list goes on. Indeed, he has that soul~funk New Orleans vibe going on. But Theriot’s far~ranging capabilities include jazz and blues, yet more importantly, he has that very special touch and feel that morphs into his musical persona, regardless of genre. On this outing, he assembles a formidable support system, including fabled New Orleans~based musicians, drummer Johnny Vidacovich and bassist James Singleton along with drummers extraordinaire, Jim Keltner and Kirk Covington, who alternate duties on a per~track basis.
•→        The production is largely built in medium tempo funk and rock motifs with a few jazzy breakouts and other deviations or mini reconstruction efforts, marked by Theriot’s crisply articulated phrasings via emphatic notes, crunching chord patterns and spirited solos. Moreover, the respective drummers inject solid beats, press rolls, off~beats, quirky tempo changes and punchy straight~four grooves with slick maneuvers intertwined into a given theme.
•→        “Long Money” is an up~tempo ballad, featuring the guitarist’s polytonal dynamics, framed with chutzpah and succinct melodies. Here, vibraphonist Matt Dillon adds soft colors, paired with the leader’s congenial hooks. But “Mid City Ditty” is a swinging jazz blues, accelerated by Vidacovich’s sweeping metrics and peppering accents. And the final track “At The End Of The Day,” opens with Leni Stern’s brief, yet uplifting spoken word, followed by Theriot’s sublime voicings and sparkling solo that culminates into an airy mood~evoking tone poem, complete with tantalizing fabrics of sound.
•→        While Theriot’s previous solo albums have delved into the jazz~fusion space, while not forgoing the funk groove element, Still Motion is a downhome type venture, overhauled with a modern uplift, and abetted by the guitarist’s technical savvy and compassionate performances. — AllAboutJazz.  •→        https://www.allaboutjazz.com/

•→        GRAMMY~Award winning producer, composer and acclaimed guitarist Shane Theriot’s new album, Still Motion, is a wondrous new collection that only adds to his already eclectic oeuvre.
•→        The New Orleans player has squeezed a lot of playing into a relatively short period of time. Since joining the world~famous Neville Brothers at age 24, Theriot has worked with a wide variety of artists in virtually all styles of music including: Dr. John, Boz Scaggs, Rickie Lee Jones, Jewel, Madeleine Peyroux, Beyoncé, Aaron Neville, Idris Muhammad, Chris Squire and Alan White (YES), Allen Toussaint, Ben Folds, Sammy Hagar, Jon Cleary, Larry Carlton, and Harry Connick Jr.
•→        Of course in addition to his funky soulful solo work, Theriot is also the lead guitarist for Daryl Hall & John Oates and the music director and guitarist for Daryl Hall’s series, Live from Daryl’s House. He also hosts the compelling podcast, The Riff Raff, which he and I have discussed before.
•→        Still Motion features 10 original tunes, built around the trio format comprised of some of his favorite players and musical allies: Jim Keltner (drum legend), Johnny Vidacovich (New Orleans icon) and Kirk Covington (Joe Zawinul, Tribal Tech) on drums; James Singleton (Professor Longhair) on upright bass; and Nate Wood (KneeBody) and Chris Maresh (Eric Johnson) on electric bass.
•→        Theriot is currently on the road with Daryl Hall and John Oates who are in the midst of a summer~ long national tour along with Tears for Fears. We caught up during an off day to talk about the new record. He told me that one of his goals was to make sure the music this time out would be easy to replicate live.
•→        “On other albums I’ve done, sometimes I’d go a little bit crazy with the production with lots of overdubs and things. That makes it harder to reproduce live. This time, I wanted to go for a really live setting. Very jazz~club feel. And the drummers I used really made that possible. Their use of space really allowed everything to breathe in a clean and live way. Especially Johnny Vidacovich. When I hire guys to play, I always give them lots of room to move. For me, it’s kind of like I think the way a director would cast a movie. I want them to bring what they have. I trust them and they are some of the best at what they do. These players don’t wait for me to lead. They react. The hear an idea, they grab it and run with it. I love that.”
•→        To Theriot’s credit, the approach works beautifully. The album feels live because for the most part, it is. Its atmosphere and spacial dynamics are taut, airy, and they seductively pull the listener right in.
•→        He also shared a bit about his influences. “Growing up, before I started listening to all of the singer songwriter stuff, I definitely gravitated toward guitar heavy albums like the ones I make. And my palate was pretty crazy and diverse. I remember one night going into a record store with my dad when I was really young and buying an album called The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery along with Rising Force by Yngwie Malmsteen. Those two records on the same night! (laughs). That’s where I was at.”
•→        While on tour, Theriot is continuing to produce his engaging The Riff Raff podcast, and plans on arranging some live dates to help showcase the new album.
•→        “Again,” he says, “the concept was to create something that works well in a live setting. And no matter how tight my schedule may be, I will find time to play it out live. I want to do justice to the concept.”
•→        Still Motion is available here and I think you will really enjoy it. Jazzy, moody and adventurous, it’s the next step in the evolution of a world~class guitarist that does his influences proud.   •→        https://www.huffingtonpost.com/
