Enjoy project albums? CDs which feature several amazing musicians with different yet compatible musical styles, all clamouring for your attention, all with something unique to offer? Then J.A.M. is for you. A marriage of European and American talent, J.A.M. is a mixture of hard-edged rock and blues fusion, pop rock, even ballads; all immersed in some seriously O.T.T. soloing from some of the finest musicians in the business.
Joel Rivard, Alessandro Benvenuti and Milan Polak all possess a wealth of experience under their belt, having performed live many times and having contributed to several musical projects utilising many diverse styles. J.A.M. witnesses a collaboration of the highest, with each player writing 3 songs over which the others solo.
The project also features keyboard maestro, Lale Larson (last heard on LNR's The Alchemists CD). This promises to be a feast of fantastic musicianship and unrestrained virtuoso playing which absolutely CANNOT be missed!

Electrocution 250 is here! 22/10/03
Cartoon music from hell, we kid you not!:
Want to hear one of the most astounding shred exercises ever burned onto
disc? Want to revel in excess and unparalleled virtuosity? Want to sit
there with your jaw hanging open - speechless at the technical mastery one
minute, laughing your head off the next? Why am I even asking you? Of

In the early 90s guitarist Todd Duane and keyboardist Lale Larson
performed a series of highly popular and virtuoso gigs throughout Europe
as well as recording several instrumentals together, including 'Schizoid'
(featured on Guitar on the Edge No. 4) and 'Double Delight'. After years
of planning the time was finally right for Todd and Lale, together with
ace drummer Peter Wildoer (Darkane, Time Requiem) to combine forces and
record a CD.
The recording Electric Cartoon Music From Hell by Electrocution 250
sounds like nothing you have ever heard before. This trio plays a mixture
of instrumental rock, fusion, thrash metal and jazz. But most of all, this
album will remind you of all those old Looney Tune cartoons you saw as a
kid. Enjoy these 38 minutes of pure entertainment. Prepare yourself for a
force 10, unrestrained and unstoppable hurricane of musical excess and
virtuosity. E-250 is here!

Exciting new projects due imminently from Liquid Note Records:
The Joel Rivard/Alessandro Benvenuti/Milan Polak CD, provatively entitled J.A.M., is making excellent progress. All songs are written and the 3 musicians - along with keyboard whizz, Lale Larson - are currently in the process of adding their solos to each others' tracks. Final mixing and mastering will take place in September, with a proposed release date of around October/November 2003. All three have recorded some of the finest compositions of their careers, so you better believe it's been worth the wait.
Ominox's Contemporary Past, the rock fusion brainchild of keyboard maestro (and featured soloist/composer on The Alchemists, The Richard Hallebeek Project and J.A.M.), Lale Larson is mixed and mastered and slated for an early 2004 release (possibly as a double CD with bonus disc).
LNR are also planning to release The Alchemists II, a single CD featuring all new tunes from a brand new crop of players. We already have a number of people lined up for the CD which promises to live up to, even exceed the standards set on The Alchemists (which, incidentally, was 5th bestselling CD on Guitar 9 out of over 1400 others!). Look for an early-to-mid 2004 release.
Liquid Note Records are also planning to release solo albums from French shred monster, Richard Daude and Austrian virtuoso, Milan Polak, both of whom can be heard on The Alchemists. The latter will be a special double album - details to be announced.
There are several other releases planned which we will announce as soon as possible. Take it from us, they all set new standards in modern musicianship!
You'll soon have the opportunity to pre-order all the 2003 releases. By doing so you'll be entitled to special incentives (see the Richard Hallebeek Project pre-order page for an example of the kind of thing we'll be offering).
Exciting journeys ahead for guitar voyagers everywhere!
