A friendly smile, then explosive, mind bending guitar work from brilliant Brazilian virtuoso Kiko Loureiro, together with Stuart Hamm, Atma Anur and Hedras Ramos, when they performed during the 'Jason Becker's not Dead Yet' festival, at the Patronaat venue in Haarlem, The Netherlands, on November 13th, 2011. UPDATE AUGUST 2012: LIVE CD NOW AVAILABLE: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jasonbeckers...

The festival was a mind blowing, near six hour marathon of world class guitar performances.

This clip is a single camera view from audience position, but a professional camera crew was also present to record the event in full, so watch out for the official video, to be released in the near future.

About Kiko Loureiro (extract from website bio):
Kiko´s work is permeated by versatility, embracing the rich palette of the world of music.
His career as a solo artist would officially start after the release of his debut instrumental album, NO GRAVITY (2004). Kiko was already a respected and well-known musician, collecting highest rankings in countless polls as "Best Guitarist", also receiving a gold record for his work with the progressive metal band Angra. Kiko has landed the cover of the Japanese magazine Young Guitar several times and received great reviews in many of the world´s best publications, magazines such as Guitar and Bass (France), Guitar Axe (Italy), Guitarist (UK), Guitar Player (USA & BRAZIL), and so on.

About Stuart Hamm (extract from his website):
Through his innovative work as a solo artist and his contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, Stuart Hamm has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics. Although Hamm certainly wasn't the first bass player to debut during the 1980s and employ an unorthodox approach to playing the electric bass, he was undoubtedly at the forefront of his generation who effectively fused the application of these unconventional techniques.

About Atma Anur (extract from his website):
Atma became a valued musician and drummer for Mike Varney's Shrapnel records in the mid 80s, and recorded a great many CDs on that label. Most of these CDs were recorded at Praorie Sun Recordings, located in Cotati Ca. Run by Mark "mooka" Rennek, it is one of the Bay Area's best recording facilities. On Shrapnel, Atma played with pivotal musicians such as Jason Becker, Tony MacAlpine, Cacophony, Greg Howe, Richie Kotzen and many more of Mike's amazing guitar discoveries. Under Mike Varney's direction many of these CDs were engineered and mixed by Grammy award winning producer Steve Fontano, and Prairie Sun's own "mooka" Rennick.

As Neal Schon of the rock band Journey said of Atma in Rolling Stone Magazine "Atma is the Jimi Hendrix of drums, the guitar player's drummer. "
Atma's guitar virtuoso sideman credits also include commercial guitar heroes Joe Satriani and Doug Doppler. Two of Doug and Atma's CDs: Ground Zero and Nu instrumental, were released in 2007 by Steve Vai's Favored Nations record label. Atma also recorded many CDs with Richie Kotzen, on various record labels between 1989 and 2005, including the Geffen Recordsrelease: Mother Heads, Family Reunion and the Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey sound track.
