Born: September Primary Instrument: Band/ensemble/orchestra
BangTower features legendary bassist Percy Jones, Grammy winning guitarist/engineer/producer Neil Citron and LA Drum Guru Walter Garces. Their debut release Casting Shadows produced by Jon Pomplin (Declassified Records), and Neil Citron (who also engineered, mixed and mastered), was released by Declassified Records on September 28, 2010. With Percy's unmistakable bass sound percolating next to Walter's harmonic cannons and implements of percussive wonder, an edgy yet incredibly dreamy, otherworldly texture becomes prominent throughout the mix. Neil's unique guitar work takes full advantage of this partnership by blending gorgeous chordal interludes, amazing melodic passages interlaced with scathingly insane soloing. The key element in this trio of legends music can be best described with one word; rapport. Though Jones, Garces and Citron are all virtuosos in their own right, it's quite evident that they are enthusiastically enjoying the crafting of this music.
