Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius update!
Joe Deninzon is my world class rock-funk-jazz violinist and he's releasing his third solo album, a live project called LIVE WIRES due May or June.
The album has mainly live "bootleg" tracks by Dave Koerner and Randy Hetherington. Both started out as fans and presented Joe with some amazing recordings. In fact Joe was so blown away by Dave's work that he hired him to tour with the band early on in the game.
There's one studio track--now with lyrics-- on the album "An Evening Nap in the Afternoon Sun" which was an instrumental on Joe's first disc. There are four brand new live songs including "The Simpsons Theme.' Alex Skolnick co-wrote "Heavy Shtettle" (Jewish metal) with Joe. Jake Ezra plays tons of guitar on this album, as well. Joe's album was mixed and mastered at Rave Studios, Ridgewood, NJ.
Joe also produced a classical album for his wife, Yulia, who plays with the New York Philharmonic. It was done at SUNY Purchase and features works by Henryk Wieniawsky, Paganini, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Eugene Ysai. Yulia's album Recorded at SUNY Purchase for release in late spring/early summer. www.yuliaziskel.com
