A new six-song EP, RAAR by guitarist Ari Joshua, featuring Ray Paczkowski and Russ Lawton from Soule Monde and the Trey Anastasio Band is coming out November 16th. More gorgeous original psychedelic rock-jazz fusion tracks from the February 2021 recording sessions in Burlington, Vermont can be anticipated for intermittent release in the coming months, and a vinyl album is anticipated in 2022.

“The eclectic multi diverse styles I write in work best with folks that can play or understand the jazz language but also can also serve the music with a knowledge of Rock, and African music. As odd as it sounds, even in the best of times, it’s hard to find the right people to work with in this style. Ray and Russ were able to interpret my music creatively and intuitively from the first or second take, it was a real joy to watch things unfold, they also were all about getting to business, I really felt as though I was with really like minded souls. From the first note of recording I could sense that Ray and Russ were a perfect musical fit, there was a shared respect and love for the music you don’t always find out there.”

In the Winter of 2020-21, in the middle of the pandemic, Ari Joshua flew into the snowy city of Burlington, Vermont to collaborate with drummer Russ Lawton, organist Ray Paczkowski, and long-time Phish Vermont recording engineer Ben Collette. The excitement sparked an intense and healthy writing spree. Ari composed about 25 demos in all.

“As I climbed into an airplane with my two favorite guitars, and a checked suitcase full of audio toys, I knew it was gonna be a great adventure to travel to Burlington and track with these guys, but I had no way of knowing the level of magic and flow that would unfold.”

Say Watcha Wanna Say

As quotes in Jambase article: “For years I’ve always dreamed of putting an organ quartet with this line up together. I’m a Hammond organ fiend for the sound and the feel. Few people can do what Delvon, Skerik, and Grant can do. I’ve played with all these guys individually for years on pickup gigs, but we never recorded together.

This session was like swimming in an ocean of ‘hot damn!’ The songs felt like they played themselves. I chose ‘Say Whatcha Wanna Say’ as the first single because it was the first song we played when we entered the room. It was a smooth take off as you can hear, and I can’t wait to share the rest. Despite everyone’s busy touring schedules the stars aligned, and everything just came out right, right out of the gates on this one.” - Ari Joshua
