Si Hayden has been busy!
His latest solo album ‘The Immutable Acoustic’ has come out and has been winning plaudits. Comprising 9 original tunes and one Vivaldi piece, the album is all played on a steel-string acoustic guitar, amplified with a Seymour-Duncan humbucker!
Here are some comments prompted by the new album
“An Incredible Musician, we look forward to his return”
(Micheal Pipe – Promotor The Etshed/Bedford)
“Very tasteful guitar playing indeed! Nice one Si Hayden”
(UK Flamenco Maestro David Shepherd)
“There’s a nocturnal quality to Hayden’s live playing that adds a patina of mystery and charm to this recording!” (AFG Guitars/UK)
A night to remember
Meanwhile Si and his power trio companions Wayne Matthews (bass) and Ben Haines (drums) have taken on saxophone tyro Gilad Atzmon. On a night charged with energy and spontaneous creativity the veteran jazzman found himself in good company as the trio laid out their fast-flowing, high-octane improvisation. The results were truly inspiring, as this video surely demonstrates.
And now – you can watch some spectacular footage from the night in question here!
