Michael Shrieve has the rare gift of finding the most amazing musicians to work with, then bringing out the best in them. He has been a solid fixture in the music world for quite a few years; his career spans the decades- from Woodstock in the 1960s, Progressive Rock in the 1970s, New Wave in the 1980s, Jazz Fusion in the 1990s to World Music in the new millenium. He has tackled these genres with style, grace and ease, leaving an indelible mark on them all. His newest project, Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder, is nothing different. His band, Spellbinder, consists of him on drums, Farko Dosumov on bass, John Fricke on Trumpet, Danny Godinez on guitar, and Joe Doria on the Hammond G3 organ.
The album 'Live at Tost' is a nice taste of what happens on Monday nights at the Tost Lounge in Seattle. Michael has assembled some of the best songs in his extensive catalog to showcase here; Jungle Strut and Every Step of the Way from his Santana days, Moon Over You from his album 'Stiletto' are three works that make an appearance here. The other cuts on this album serve as great vehicles that highlight each band members' gifts quite well. Until you can make it to The Tost Lounge on Monday nights to hear Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder in person this CD is great listening.

Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder, Live at ToST (Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder, Live At ToST) is very appropriately titled! I found myself enraptured listening to the music.
It took me on a musical journey unlike any I've experienced in a very long time. Truly an exceptional musical portrait is painted with this album. I wasn't just impressed, but BLOWN AWAY. The band is sensational -every single second of every performance was a complete delight.
It's interesting to see how Shrieve influenced the early Santana sound (rather than the other way around!) on "Every Step of The Way", and to hear some of the best percussion work this side of the moon on "Flamingo", and "Moon Over You" which is one of the finest musical compositions I've heard - ever.
"Jungle Strut" simply SMOKES, with the sexy B3 and the guitar playing off one another - it was impossible to sit still while listening to it. "Flamingo" is a killer - and the guitar effects starting at about 2:30 lead to a dreamy feel that is carried away by the driving rhythm section.
While many live albums sacrifice sound quality, Live at ToST is recorded better than many studio albums - and one can hear how the entire band is loving every second of their performances on this CD. I found myself feeling very, very envious of the live audience - wishing I'd been there to see it, too.
I was once asked, if I was stranded on a deserted island for a year, with only two albums to listen to, what I would choose. My answer was Santana's Abraxas and The Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers. With Spellbinder, I must say they'd have to make room for three CDs, because this album is, truly, a classic.

As Peter Monahan wrote in an Earshot Jazz review of this group:
Michael Shrieve is a long way from the glory days of Santana - he was a 20-year-old star with them at Woodstock, and a fixture of the band through its prime years; but, listen up, the man is still a phenomenal drummer, and right now he may be playing better than at any time in decades. And, at these late-evening shows at ToSt, in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, he has a power-packed band to render a vision that is part-Santana and part a whole lot else: blazing guitarist Danny Godinez, Hammond B3 warrior Joe Doria, John Fricke playing an electrified trumpet, and bass phenom Farko Dosumov, from Uzbekistan, one of the finest musicians on any instrument in the region.
