Primary Instrument: Guitar

Although he has been a working pro on the New York scene for the past 25 years, guitarist James Silberstein had been flying somewhat under the radar . . . until now. An accomplished player who combines the warm tone and remarkably fluid single note burn of a Pat Martino, Tal Farlow or Joe Diorio with a capacity for harmonic sophistication, uncommon lyricism and a penchant for alluring bossa novas, Silberstein crafts an invigorating and appealing collection of standards and originals on Song for Micaela, his long overdue debut as a leader. Along for the ride are the guitarist's core working rhythm section of bassist/producer Tony Cimorosi and drummer Vince Cherico as well as such stellar guests as trumpeter Randy Brecker, saxophonist Eric Alexander, pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Harvie S and vocalist Carla Cook. Together these seasoned jazz artists swing with authority while engaging in some fiery interplay along the way....

“A totally complete, fulfilling cd led by Jim's amazing, masterful soloing, with an array of arrangements, all with interesting orchestrations and all complimenting his unique concept for each tune. Every player here is a giant.” --Gene Bertoncini

“Express Lane is a second great recording by guitar master James Silberstein. Wonderful standards and some very beautiful originals by James and bassist Harvie S. Express Lane is a must recording for all jazz fans who also love warm, moving melodies.” --Jack Wilkins

“James Silberstein is a great guitarist with something of his own to say. This cd shows his unique gifts as an improviser and composer. His playing is exciting and thoughtful and full of surprises. He has also assembled a stellar cast of musicians whose talents he utilizes to the fullest as part of his own conception. This is a great cd with much depth and many contrasts of mood and feeling.” --Peter Bernstein

”So what is there to really say here? Killer big apple jazzbo guitarist rounds up some first call pals and sets sail for a solid session that any jazz guitar fan should love. On the money throughout with a sound and fury that echoes the greats that have come before him while adding his own colors and tones, this is simply one that should be hanging around your Ipod for those times you want a reliable date to let your ears sink into. Never less than totally satisfying.” (CAP) --Chris Spector Midwest Record
