Renowned guitarist Denny Jiosa is stepping into a new world. With six chart-topping contemporary jazz CDs of his own and four GRAMMY nominations for his work with gospel artist Yolanda Adams and elite polka artist LynnMarie, Denny is no stranger to diversification. His musicianship has been compared to guitar greats Wes Montgomery, Eric Clapton, George Benson and Carlos Santana.
On his newest release, Jiosa-On The Edge, Jiosa has ventured into his first ‘band’ project, and aggressive instrumental rock CD featuring bassist Jon von Boehm and drummer John Toomey, both of Nashville. The recording is indeed a long-awaited musical venture for Jiosa.
With all the elements the musician is known for, Jiosa-On The Edge contains compelling melodies, jazz harmonic colors and cinematic landscapes that all unfold effortlessly, giving a glimpse of the project’s prodigious musical vocabulary. In conjunction with the rock and jazz sensibilities of bassist von Boehm and drummer Toomey, Jiosa has an uncanny way of expressing deep emotions through the twists, turns and nuances of the seductive melodies. Jiosa-On The Edge sets a new standard in progressive rock. www.dennyjiosa.com
