Info for Triumphant Hearts
Jason Becker's story is one of brilliance, talent, determination, adversity, and, ultimately, triumph. A child prodigy on guitar, Jason rose to prominence as a teenager when he was one half of the legendary rock guitar duo Cacophony (with his great friend Marty Friedman). After wowing audiences all over the world with his amazing guitar chops and deep compositions, Jason auditioned for—and got—the gig with David Lee Roth, following in the huge footsteps of Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai. He wrote and recorded the DLR album A Little Ain't Enough and was poised to take over the rock guitar world when a nagging pain in his leg was diagnosed as ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, a debilitating and fatal condition with a life expectancy of maybe five years. Maybe.
That was 29 years ago. Today Jason's busier and more prolific than ever, as evidenced by his latest release, Triumphant Hearts. The album's 14 tracks showcase Jason's gift for melody and his deep knowledge of classical composition and orchestral arrangement. Many of the guitar parts are performed by a who's-who of 6-string gods including Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Neal Schon, Steve Morse, Paul Gilbert, Joe Bonamassa, and many others. And, in what will absolutely delight his fans, Jason's amazing guitar playing—recorded in the '80s and '90s—graces several tunes.
"Triumphant Hearts is one such testimony to the great man, it is a stunning collection of music that not only through fellow like minded greats of the business, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Marty Friedman and the likes convey Becker’s musical genius through some blistering guitar work, but also showcase his compositional skills through mesmerising arrangements and gorgeous atmospheric storytelling. This is not just a shredfest by any means, it goes way beyond that and delves deep into Becker’s mind and love to orchestral pieces. This album is an audible journey through the brain of one of Rock’s finest ambassadors conveyed by those who loved him and the few who are capable of translating such majesty into recorded music.
A veritable who’s who of players on this sublime album take the breath away within its fourteen tracks. Years in the making, yet well worth the wait." (rocknloadmag.com)
Jason Becker, guitar
(born July 22, 1969) is an American neo-classical metal guitarist and composer. At the age of 16, he became part of the Mike Varney-produced duo Cacophony with his friend Marty Friedman. They released Speed Metal Symphony in 1987 and Go Off! in 1988. Cacophony broke up in 1989 and Becker began doing solo work, having released his first album Perpetual Burn in 1988. He later joined David Lee Roth's band and recorded one album with him. However, Becker's success was hampered by his then-diagnosed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and was given three to five years to live. In 1996, Becker eventually lost the ability to speak and now communicates with his eyes via a system developed by his father. Despite his disability, he continues composing by using a computer and has released Collection.
To this day, he´s still regarded as one of the greatest and most influential guitar players in all of music history.
