Jazz Rock Power Trio Suhy, Silvergold & Alvarado have released their debut album Tessellations today. “Tessellations is a record that I’ve wanted to make for some time,” says composer and bandleader Ray Suhy. “It’s a record that encompasses the many different styles that I love to play and listen to, but haven’t yet been able to put together into a cohesive way.” The album is available for purchase HERE.
All this week, leading up to the album’s release, Gear Gods has been hosting exclusive studio play through videos of tracks from Tessellations. You can view the videos below:
On Tessellations Suhy is assisted by two other like minded musicians. Rolando Alvarado on electric and upright basses and up-and-coming 16-year-old drummer Alex Silvergold.
Suhy is a guitarist that plays in metal bands (East Of The Wall, Cannabis Corpse), has recorded free jazz records (with Allen Lowe, Matthew Ship and Lewis Porter) and plays in an 80’s style electro pop band (Dangerous Muse).
Alex Silvergold is a 16-year-old drummer with a technical style that is heavily influenced by players like Gavin Harrison, Marco Minneman, Mike Mangini, Tony Royster Jr., and Mike Portnoy. Alex has performed for Max Weinberg, has opened for guitarist David Bromberg, and has jammed with music legends Carmine Appice, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, and Richie Kotzen.
Thematically, this record narrates a sleep/dream/awakening cycle as a metaphor for traveling to the far reaches of space and then back towards the sun again. “I wanted the record to express the journey from light to dark. The balance of those two things is really important to me when I create. Too much of one or the other and the expression is out of balance.”
