Inner Flame (with Mark Egan and Arjun Bruggeman)

In 2018 legendary bassist Mark Egan asked me to contribute some guitar and lap steel to a project he was working on with a great percussionist named Arjun Bruggeman. This resulted in the recording entitled "Dreaming Spirits". For more info on this record click here. Shortly after we did the recording Mark asked if I could come up to his studio and record some improvisational pieces that he could use as promotion for this record.

I was living in NYC at the time and because I had taken the train up from my place in Manhattan that day I was limited on what I could bring. I brought a small pedalboard and my electric guitar and I used Mark's Martin acoustic for this one.

I had a little acoustic riff reminiscent of "Shakti" (ala John McLaughlin) that I was playing around with and Mark liked it. We went with it and the result was this tune that Mark later titled "Inner Flame".

I listened to the entire record and the three videos, and these are really nice recordings. Inner Flame is a stand out for me since it is guitar forward. The guitars elevated this entire project, in my opinion. Loved listening to these!
