dB-INFUSION /MUSO & PROUD

Fantastic cover, fantastic album! Guitar maestro Danny Berdichevsky and his boys have here crafted a great package of twelve dazzling pieces which vary in style, tempo, mood and intensity. Those who are familiar with the band will all know the frenetic opener, their superb rocked-up version of Rimsky-Korsakov's classic 'Flight Of The Bumblebee' - here renamed 'Flight Of The BumbleBEAT'. The superb work of Danny here sets the scene perfectly for what is to follow. Though elements of rock, classical and Flamenco all bubble up from time to time, the main angle here is jazz. Beautifully languid Berdichevsky compositions such as 'Ocean Tales' and 'The River' call to mind the heyday of classical-rock combo Sky, while works by composers as diverse as John Coltrane and Paco De Lucia are rendered in great style by the band and an impressive array of guests including John Helliwell, John Etheridge, John Hackett, Peter Banks and Hugh McDowell. Berdichevsky's own guitar-work is as breathtaking as ever, and the interplay between this and the exquisite keyboards of co-conspirator Gonzalo Carrera is a joy to behold - with their band-mates Ollie Usiskin, Lakis Economou, Steve Stephenson and Rob Statham all making their presence felt by their own stylish musical contributions. An album for lovers of ALL music, this one - the musicianship here is of the very highest class, and the music itself is complex, evocative and very, very enjoyable.

Db-Infusion with Focus at Plinston Hall, 17th October 2010

If anyone fancies getting high on pure, present-day jazz and fusion, then go and see the one and only db-Infusion. I had a double stroke of luck one October night in Hertfordshire's inconspicuous Letchworth Garden City, having seen my favourite two bands sharing one stage. Db-Infusion were on the same bill with the legendary Focus, which was a very promising combination. And indeed, the Plinston Hall rocked that night, at several points nearly taking off towards the skies of progressive jazz/rock paradise. With hypnotising arrangements and brilliant performance of Gonzalo Carrera on keyboards, Danny Berdichevsky on guitar, Ollie Usiskin on drums and Ben Hillyard on bass,†Db-Infusion delighted the audience with powerful songs from their well-acclaimed album Dreamscape, such as "Yo Yo" or "Its 1 of Those Days". They also caused a stir by Isaac Albeniz's Asturias and a breath-taking fusion version of Rimski-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee. The musical proficiency of this dynamic band combined with their invention and passion invariably results in an extraordinary experience for their audiences.

INFUSION DREAMSCAPE

The multi-talented Infusion is back with an absolute jaw-dropping piece of jazz-rock or jazz-fusion, depending on what your take is. Superb musicianship and equally spellbinding material make for a superb listen. The basis of Danny Berdichevsky, Gonzalo Carrera, Rob Statham, Ollie Usiskin and the late Steve Stephenson is high-energy in itself, but when they can draw on the saxophonic's of John Helliwell, cello of Hugh McDowell, guitar of John Etheridge and flute of Rowland Sutherland plus a whole host ofexcellent guests it comes out of the mincing machine as something veryspecial. To hear some of the acoustic guitar work of Berdichevsky alone is a treat and you must have ears painted on not to appreciate what is happening. There's some pretty stirring piano and bass work from Carrera and Statham respectively. Great stuff!

"This was one of those magical gigs that fully lived up to its billing. First on stage were the brilliant INFUSION. Support bands often get a raw deal, and often have to put up with people laughing, shouting, buying drinks and generally not paying them attention - but not tonight. From their lively opening piece Yo-Yo, this exciting jazz/rock/fusion outfit had the crowd spellbound, and by the end of their set were getting rapturous applause.

Gonzalo Carrera is well known to CRS, having played with almost as many bands as Martin Hudson has had birthdays (sorry, couldn't resist that!). He's a great guy, and it is a mark of his talent as a keyboard player that tonight he was no way overshadowed by Oliver. Listening to his excellent work on a manic Flight of the Bumblebee (which works really well given the fusion treatment) was a pleasure. His mate Danny Berdichevsky is equally talented on the guitar and contributed some breathtaking playing, his flamenco influences surfacing on the enchanting Jerusalem; to hear these two maestros on pieces like Little Drops of Rain (which they dedicate to percussionist Steve, who sadly died in a car crash) and Dark and Blue made this a memorable evening for me and, I'll bet, many others. They were offered fine support by the excellent Ollie Usiskin on drums and the intricate bass work of Rob Statham, and went down a storm with the crowd - they must be one of the most talented bands ever to have played a support slot for the CRS: let's hope we see them headlining one day!"

I really enjoyed the gig at the national theatre, great band, great musicians with excellent dexterity combined with very beautiful melodies and a nice mixture of flamenco, jazz rock and fusion. One of my favourite songs of the evening was "Dark and Blue". I indeed predict a great future to these guys.
