David Barret Trio biography
DAVID BARRETT TRIO is a band from Toronto, produced by Alex Liefson. David BARRETT started the band in summer 2010 with bassist Jason FARRAR and percussionist Sascha Tukatsch. They recorder their self-titled album with engineer Richard Chycki (RUSH, DREAM THEATER). They also worked in 2012 with producer ALAN PARSONS. The members of the trio have a lot of experiences on touring and recording.

The music is a instrumental driven rock where the acoustic (including mandolin) and electric guitars have a lot of space. The album alternate between mellow, sometimes folk parts and heavier passages, the latter show the RUSH influence. There is also a little exotic flavors to the music on some songs. We can hear some STEVE HOWE and JIMMY PAGE style of guitars on this first album, but not as much as ALEX LIEFSON!

4 stars If Alex Liefson decided to take control of Rush, that's what it would sound! With only one album, the band release a DVD consisting of songs from their Sonar album and 2 new songs. The work of Alex Liefson has help to create that Rush's sound. The use of 12 strings guitar and the sound of many of the songs take you back to the song "Xanadu". The first song of the set "Dive" is the darkest and heaviest song of the show. The music is instrumental with with one exception for the song "Belmonte" sing by Paul Reid, and there's no keys here. The guitar player David Barrett use the steel guitar to this guitar dominated music. "A Whisper to Thunder" has some nice build up and is another standout track. "The Great Eastern Sun" has a lot of Alex's arrangements and has a nice ending. The last song "The Elegant Universe" that will be out on the next album is a perfect ending to this concert. There is some nice visuals to this performance with lasers and a very good audio mix that let's you hear clearly the bass and drums. Ironically the sound of each instrument is better captured that on the latest Rush's release "Clockwork Angels".

4 stars The stamps of Alex Liefson sensibility is all over the place on this release that you can swear he has done more than working on the arrangements and the recording of this release. It's a guitar oriented album with folk, exotic (flamenco) flavors on the light side and on the heavy side, it's more classic rock and heavy rock oriented. The Rush's influence is coming from the latest period of the Canadian band. Some guitars riffs are reminiscent of Steve Howe with the use of the steel guitar, and at times Jimmy Page, but you can also hear some guitars structures similar to the band Anathema. The versatility of the guitars is completed with bass, including the moog Taurus pedals, and a nice rhythm section, which is not as strong as Neil Peart, but has some delicate complexity. The album is instrumental except on the song "Belmonte". This is a nice release with plenty of beautiful compositions that is promising for the future of the band, a second album is about to see the day.
Thanks to andy webb for the artist addition.
