All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Shawn Lane, Jonas Hellborg & Jeff Sipe, Lake Toxaway, NC, 8-08-1996 (SBD)

Shawn Lane was one of the most technically accomplished players of all time with a melodic ear, Lane was named by the American Guitar Institute as the "greatest guitarist who ever lived".  Shawn Lane died in 2003 but we can still hear his music.  This is a great recording of him shredding on the guitar with amazing bass player Jonas Helborg and the great Jeff Sipe on drums.  The musicianship on this is amazing.

    Drop me a comment here if you would like any more, cheers Dave Sez.

  2. Sure, give us some links to some more. I remember back in the day there was a blog called Dr. fusion that had a lot of this but the links have been dead for a very long time.

  3. Dave if you give me your e-mail I will contact you and not publish or post your e-mail.

  4. It would be great that you sure more Shawn Lane stuff here. I really love his albums. Thanks in advance!

  5. Well, I'm trying to contact Dave sez and get CDs two and three he listed.

  6. And not just those two - tons more and all of it great! I've written to AZ, so keep watching this blog ... cheers, Dave Sez.

  7. That's great, AZ and Dave. I remember this trio called themselves "jazz terrorists" as they were able to play everything and too far away from an standard jazz trio. Shawn Lane deserves to be remembered. Thanks again!

  8. Most welcome, Barleyman70, and indeed thanks to AZ for hosting this - much more to come, and all of it stunning! Keep checking back ...

    cheers, Dave Sez.

  9. Can't wait to see more Shawn Lane posts. His live material is very hard to find, so thank you for making them available!

  10. Thank you for the Shawn Lane recordings Arizona Jones and Dave Sez! I hope to see more recordings, as Shawn Lane live material is hard to find now.

  11. Thanks again, Dave and AZ. I will be coming here. I hope I could help in some way.
