Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio's solo debut--not counting One Man's Trash, his limited-release odds-and-sods assortment--is the affable, something-for-everybody, more-or-less-mainstream album that the avant-arena rock quartet was always too collectively freaky to record together. Anastasio's new group--an eight-member powerhouse with a rock-solid rhythm section, slamming horns, and a string player or two--is a versatile vehicle for eclectic compositions ranging from a trio of dangerously mellow 3-minute acoustic ballads (including the Bob Marley-inspired "Ether Sunday") to the explosive 11-minute head charge "Last Tube." Anastasio updates the horny Tower of Power legacy in the Latin funk of "Alive Again" (with guest percussionist Cyro Baptista), the wailing R&B of "Money, Love, and Change," and a rocket-fueled commercial for decadence, "Push on 'Til the Day." His stated goal was to mesh composition and improvisation. Here he invokes composer Charles Ives's regionally inspired chamber music in "At the Gazebo" before cranking up the Oysterheady psych-rock of "Mr. Completely." All in all, mission accomplished. --Richard Gehr

Product Description

For 18 years, Trey Anastasio has been the guitarist, vocalist and frontman for Phish, one of the most important and influential bands of the past two decades. Phish's music and concert tours evolved into a way of life for millions of fans and changed the way people think of live music - and they've sold a few million albums, too. Now, Trey Anastasio steps out on his own with his self-titled solo debut album. Recorded at The Barn, Trey's studio in Burlington, Vermont, the album features Trey backed by a long list of stellar musicians. Throughout, a four-member horn section dishes out punchy, stabbing counterpoint to Anastasio's ever-inventive guitar work or engages in smart, peppery exchanges among themselves. A mighty three-piece rhythm section nails down the grooves, which range from light to Latin to sweetly funky to wickedly syncopated. The variety of moods, styles, lengths and tempos - from sinewy funk to pastoral etudes to structured improv - results in a kaleidoscopic yet cohesive listening experience. It's a kind of marriage between composition and improvisation, between written songs and the spontaneous, inspired moments that erupt when talented musicians are cooking up a storm.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Record, So What If Its Not Phish May 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I Have been obsessed with the music of Phish for more than a year now and consider them to be one of the best bands (if not the best) of their time. When I heard Trey was coming out with a solo album I was ecstatic since the band hasn't released any new material since Farmhouse. When I got the record and put it in the stereo I was blown away. It had the avante garde edge of Phish with stronger songs and much more dynamic sound. It it was a thrill to hear the powerful horns, funky rhythms, and terrific guitar playing. Push on Til Day exhibits Trey's exceptional talent on guitar with an amazing solo that mixes the jazziness of Phish's earlier effort with a strong, bluesy feel. Caymen Review, Alive Again, and Ether Sunday show considerable reggae influence and are highlights of the album. So what if it isn't Phish. It retains all the great qualities of Phish and simply expands on them. Its not Junta or Picture of Nectar, however, it is a must have for any Phish fan. Trey truly shows that he can hold his own without Phish; this cd is more than enough proof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trey knows what he's doing... May 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Enough with the comparisons to Phish... The horn section delivers a solid punch to add to the hardline grooves of bassist Markellis and drummer Lawton. It's nice and rhythmic with a lot of Afro-Cuban influence. Trey is the undisputed leader of this band and he shows it. He wrote all the music, including the horn charts. Quite a departure from Phish, which is a good thing since we don't know how long they will be "resting" (us phans didn't need to be teased with Phishy type songs!) Go catch Trey this summer, you will not be disappointed. And get this CD, it's really great to listen to. Horns kick [behind]. Highlights include the whole album. Really great lyrics by Tom Marshall on "Flock of Words." I love this disc.

Well, I've been a Phish fan for years, always prone to two styles of jamming they produce, the spacefunk, and the chaos. This Trey CD doesn't capture the essence of Phish, or those two styles of Phish jamming I enjoy the most, and it's clear that it's not supposed to. It does do a great job of summarizing the last two years of solo touring Trey has been up to, though. Well, if you haven't heard it, the album is loaded with great party music. The track "Push on 'til the Day" is a jazz funk caribbean latino rock out jamboree, guaranteed to make ya shake, that displays best what Trey wants to do with this project. He wants people of all races, all ages, all that stuff, to appreciate what he's done. He wants little kids to boogie down and music aficionados (aka snobs) to say, "Hmmm, that's pretty decent stuff." So, unless you hate Trey Anastasio and that's all there is to it, you should go on and pick up this album. And don't expect much mellow. It's a rip roarin' party time boogie funk extravaganza you just can't keep a lid on! Yup.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is some good Phish! More like, good Anastasio! June 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the best Phish (catch) of the day. This is some good Phish! More like, good Anastasio! I've never been a fan of Phish, until I saw a special "cameo-appearance" of Trey and his entourage on Fox TV's, "The Simpson's." It showed the band performing a gig for the citizens of Springfield, partying with Homer and the gang. (Hence, the marijuana use and the heavy beer-drinking they were doing on the show.) Needless to say, It made me laugh, to seeing them perform in front of this large backdrop, of a marijuana plant. Nonetheless, they really know how to make good music and working the crowd. I was so intrigued by them.
I was so delighted, to hear Trey's self-titled album. I got his
album at a record store - on a whim - to discovering the talent of Trey's prolific, musical-prowess. (However, I don't have any of Phish CD's.) The album comes-off sounding a little bit like: Jimi Hendrix, Santana and Eric Clapton. The compositions on this album, are a mix of different musical-genres: part blues, funk, jazz, and then some....Trey's "the master" with the guitar. He's so smooth and articulate.
With the beautiful-harmonies of the "horn section" playing in some of the songs, gives the music an up-tempo, brassy-like feel. With its "funky-riffs" and catchy lyrics from "Alive Again" and "Cayman Review" - it provokes the listener to "get up and dance."
Although, there are some songs like "Flock Of Words" and "Ether Sunday" that you can chill to. You've got to be able to "dig-deeper" to finding the meaning of some of the lyrics, in the songs. I haven't the foggiest-idea of what "Ray Dawn Balloon" is all about....

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an interesting CD June 25, 2002
By daGUY
Format:Audio CD
This is such an interesting CD...I was actually not aware Trey was coming out with a new album until a friend told me about it. I have since had the opportunity to listen to it and will be purchasing it soon. I at first thought it would sound a lot like Phish, but it is surprisingly very different.
Although from time to time you can hear previous Phish influences, this is overall a very different album. The backup gospel singers, horn section, and strings in combination give it a very interesting and unique sound. I've never heard anything quite like the material on this album before. Overall, it's a very eclectic mix of funk, country, and improv...rather hard to describe. You'll have to hear it to understand :)
I'd definitely recommend this album to anyone, Phish fan or not. There's something on it for everybody...I guarantee you'll enjoy it.
