JOE SATRIANI ‘SHAPESHIFTING’ AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE PT 2
Shapeshifting is guitar legend Joe Satriani’s 18th studio album and has rocketed straight to the upper regions of the record charts. In part two of this Australian exclusive, Australian Musician’s Nic Nighthawk caught up with Joe, swimming in a green screen to chat about the album, his relationship with Ibanez guitars and the ‘wow’ factor which makes an artist great!
The Shapeshifting session musicians consisted of: drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Fogerty), bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) and keyboardist Eric Caudieux, who were the core musicians on the new album with additional contributions coming from Lisa Coleman (The Revolution) and Christopher Guest. Jim Scott (Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) co-produced the album sessions with Satriani. Longtime associate John Cuniberti was on board as well, handling the mastering duties.
