STIll­ness In Mo­TIon – lIve In lA

Guitar Techniques - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

This is Steve Vai’s first re­lease un­der the newly formed Le­gacy/Sony al­liance and comes in the form of a choice of dou­ble disc packages: ei­ther twin DVDs or a dou­ble CD. Taken from a live gig recorded in Oc­to­ber 2012 dur­ing Steve’s Story Of Light tour, the con­cert fea­tures newer ma­te­rial as well as sta­ples like The An­i­mal and For The Love Of God. Need­less to say, the play­ing is an ex­u­ber­ant dis­play of fret­board wiz­ardry from the out­set, with Vai pow­er­ing his Jem into strato­spheric feats of vir­tu­os­ity with tap­ping ex­trav­a­gan­zas galore and you con­sider how the songs are con­structed. If you use ped­als then this guy is noth­ing short of in­spi­ra­tional. Need­less to say you need to see him live, but un­til then this a great al­bum.
