Virtuoso guitarist and visionary composer Steve Vai’s new solo album The Story Of Light features a sprawling and expressive 12-song set continuing a conceptual and cosmic narrative arc which began on the artist’s acclaimed 2005 album Real Illusions: Reflections.
Although The Story of Light is largely instrumental, the album does feature guest vocalists including singer‐songwriter Aimee Mann dueting with Vai on “No More Amsterdam”, which she also co-wrote and Beverly McClellan, a season one finalist on The Voice. McClellan appears on “John the Revelator”, a track inspired by a vintage recording of blues singer Blind Willie Johnson, whose acid-soaked vocals are in the mix as well. Other highlights include the title track (which opens the album), “Gravity Storm”, “The Moon and I”, and “Velorum”.
This limited-run Classic Rock Steve Vai Edition Magazine is a Collector's Edition in its own right and will be unavailable elsewhere.
