“Planet Z Featuring Susan Aquila”
Planet Z Featuring Susan Aquilareview by sattridg
Susan Aquila has a pretty impressive repertoire as a professional violinist: she has been all over the world sharing stages with artists like Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, and Brittany Spears; she’s performed recitals at the White House for Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton; and has been in Broadway shows like Wicked and The Lion King. Here, on her first solo debut, she tears up the electric violin in a wild jazz/rock fusion with composer and guitarist Rob Tomaro. The album is a sort of epic, experimental, instrumental jam battle between the two artists. It’s a little over the top and difficult to listen to at times (track 3!!!), but a cool concept.
