Jonas Hellborg and Shawn Lane's Icon

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by The_Ryst, Oct 3, 2005.

  1. Has anyone heard this phenomonal CD? It's some of hte best fusion I've heard. I love it! Are there any other CDs that are this great? The bass playing is amazing. Any real info on Jonas Hellborg? I know very little about him, I've read an interview, that's about it.

    Do a search, but my favorite from this duo (Lane/Hellborg) are Temporary Analogues of Paradise, Two Doors (now out of print, but under the name of drummer Michael Shrieve), and Abstract Logic.

    Yeah, great bassist huh? I didnt hear of him until a few years ago as well, guess he does not like too much publicity since his 80's stuff. I really like his Improv/Jam cd's.

    check out for his label you can get his stuff there or some other stuff on
  4. Yeah I read an interview from him and he's quite a weird guy...very weird, but an awesome bassist. Does anyone know if he's done any shred heavy stuff? My guitarist wants to hear him, and he's a little to closed minded for indian fusion:-o

    All the albums with Shawn Lane are excellent! What a mind meld those guys had!!! Turn your guitar player on to Shawn Lane, one of the greats, that never got the recognition he deserved......he was a great keyboard player/ composer also.
  9. Alright I'll try those trio albums!
