“Meeting of The Minds” out February 9th, 2023. “MOTM” features Billy Martin on drums, John Medeski on keyboards, Ari Joshua on guitar, and bassist for Cyro Baptista and Matisyahu – Jason Fraticelli. The record was tracked in Woodstock, New York. “MOTM” is just a small window into the unique body of work recorded on this session. The tile inspired by the album art by visionary artist Burgundy Viscosi.

From Jambase.com - There is poetry in bearing witness to the pursuit and realization of an artist’s dreams. Guitarist Ari Joshua continues to impress with a heady stream of impressive collaborations.

This young lion’s run of acclaimed independent releases continues to bring together some of the jam, rock, and jazz scenes’ greatest contemporaries. Each release marks a critical note in his unique journey as an innovative and progressive contributing artist on the scene today.

What constitutes “impressive?” Artists like Robert Glasper, Reggie Watts, Ray Paczkowski and Russ Lawton (TAB, Soule Monde), members of Medeski, Martin & Wood, his jam rock vehicle Space Owl, KJ Sawka, Joe Doria, Delvon Lamarr, Skerik, John Kimock, and more.

Quote;

“You gotta let those doves fly, in Woodstock, there are doves painted on everything and that was the theme of the week. It was a really beautiful experience to record with John and Billy. ‘Meeting of The Minds’ is the raw first notes we played, we just let the birds fly. They were really generous with letting me into their worlds. I had a moment while grabbing coffee after all was wrapped, Burgandy who did the artwork has a mural at COSM and I got an invite from her to visit with Alex Grey at his house out there, it was pretty mind-blowing. Everything was lining up, I sent a text to my friend and mentor Michael Shrieve who played at Woodstock, it was really special. I am excited to let these doves fly.” - A. Joshua

The artwork speaks for itself. Just like "Meeting of The Minds" which is due out February 9th, 2023... "Eye Just Called to Soul, I Love You" is an improv track but it is more then that, both these tracks are the first time these bands have ever played together period. Captured on tape, mixed, and mastered for your listening pleasure. Noe you can experience the thrill of hearing the artists play together for the first time. Something that will never happen again. In Hebrew there is actually a word and a prayer for this called a Shehechianu.

The Prodigy - The Saga of Milly and Fee P2

Ari Joshua, Russ Lawton, Ray Paczkowski, & Scott Kettner

“The Prodigy” was written in Burlington, Vermont just a few weeks after “The Beacon Jams.” On many of these releases, as you parse his inflections and tones, Phisheads will note that they are at times reminiscent of big red himself. This is part of the shape-shifting tapestry that is revealed as you unpeel the layers of Ari Joshua’s musical

“The Prodigy” was written in Burlington, Vermont just a few weeks after “The Beacon Jams.” On many of these releases, as you parse his inflections and tones, Phisheads will note that they are at times reminiscent of big red himself. This is part of the shape-shifting tapestry that is revealed as you unpeel the layers of Ari Joshua’s musical influences. This song was written as a tribute, and an etude and Ray and Russ did a beautiful job interpreting the good. To dedicate one’s life to music, one must cast a wide net. The sheet music for all new releases is available on his website in the merch tab, maybe so, or, maybe not.

“The architecture in Burlington, the old churches, the lake, it all made for a magical carousel journey in my mind. I imagined what I would write if I was there at that time, and it just flowed off the page. ”

The Clinic

Ari Joshua, Russ Lawton, Ray Paczkowski

Ari Joshua’s adventurous and recognizable guitar tone is a unique compliment to Soule Monde and Trey Anastasio Band keyboardist Ray Paczkowski and drummer Russ Lawton. In this song, Russ’s therapeutically soulful beat pulses right out of the kit and into your heart, intertwining with Ray and Ari’s salacious melodies and grooves. This trio

Ari Joshua’s adventurous and recognizable guitar tone is a unique compliment to Soule Monde and Trey Anastasio Band keyboardist Ray Paczkowski and drummer Russ Lawton. In this song, Russ’s therapeutically soulful beat pulses right out of the kit and into your heart, intertwining with Ray and Ari’s salacious melodies and grooves. This trio consistently delivers the goods this being their 11th release. “The Clinic” is a reference to when the song was recorded, a few weeks after the legendary “Beacon Jams” fundraiser. Artwork by Rimbaraw.

“The pandemic provided obstacles but it also created opportunities. It was a lemons-to-lemonade moment for sure. Ray and Russ have a deep vibe. At times I thought, I never heard them play exactly like this before. It shows you how incredible they are as players. They are just all in when it comes to making art together. They could read my mind a little, they are really sweet people. I gotta thank Trey for playing a role in creating a protocol, it really saved me, I quarantined, walked into the clinic, waited for results, and then boom, straight to the studio. Ben Collette was also very helpful in making this music, his studio has that reclaimed barn thing going on, Vermont is a real hang.”
