Live @Tavern 213
BIOGRAPHY Randy Bernsen Bernsen has played to audiences all over the U.S., Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia. He brings with him an exciting sound and a musical message uniquely developed in South Florida. Calling me Back Home, is the latest studio recording of the critically-acclaimed guitarists formerly with the Zawinul Syndicate. His first three projects recorded for MCA records placed him as one of the top jazz guitarists-composer and producers around! His recordings have featured artists of varying styles...from Herbie Hancock, to Bruce Hornsby,as well as Toots Theilemans,and Michael Hedges. Late great Jaco Pastorious, was also featured on two of the MCA releases! Typical of the generation (jazz guitar baby boomer's).... The Beatles became an early influence followed by Eric Clapton. Later, Wes Montgomery's work became the main study as well some early attempts at composition...Hearing the sounds of Miles and Weather Report, and meeting up with bassist Jaco Pastorius, all helped to cement a direction and fascination with all forms of music. This was to become the trademark of future recordings. Bernsen later put out three projects for MCA records - 'Music for People, Planets and Washing Machines' -(1985),'Mo' Wasabi' (1987), and 'Paradise Citizens'(1989). Independent CD's,'Calling Me back Home'(1993).'Live at Tavern 213' and 'Live in San Miguel' are also currently available.
