Neal Schon is promoting his lastest solo album, The Calling, which was released last October. Produced by and featuring Schon on all guitars and bass, The Calling reunites Schon with former Journey bandmate, Steve Smith, who lends his virtuoso drum talents to all 12 tracks on the new album.
Schon set up shop at Berkeley’s famed Fantasy Studios during a break from Journey’s busy touring schedule and recorded the album, completely from scratch, in just four days. After overdubbing multiple guitar and bass parts, Schon recruited two keyboard masters to flesh out the music. Igor Len, an accomplished classical, jazz and film composer who had previously collaborated with Schon, is featured on acoustic piano throughout The Calling album.
Grammy Award-winning special guest Jan Hammer (JEFF BECK, MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, Miami Vice soundtrack) recorded Moog synthesizer solos on two tracks – 'Fifty Six' and 'Tumbleweeds'.
