Michael Shrieve + David Beal - The Big Picture

Artist: Michael Shrieve + David Beal
P: 1988

Two of the foremost drummers of rock and new age blend their exceptional talents with the latest technology to create a landmark album. On The Big Picture, Michael Shrieve and David Beal produce fully orchestrated music using electronic drum pads and digital samplings. Through this system, a drumpad can sound like a trumpet, violin, voice, or it can create a completely new sound. Though originally composed on computer, all the music on The Big Picture was played entirely with drumsticks. This album is a refreshing celebration of rhythm and melody. The pieces compose a dazzling menu, ranging from the exotic to the mischievous, all sharing a compelling vibrancy and excitement. The Big Picture opens a new door for percussionists. It puts the percussionist on a plane with traditional front line soloists and it elevates him to orchestral arranger, with infinite combinations of sounds, timbres, rhythms and instrumentations at his disposal.

Michael Shrieve - Fascination

Artist: Michael Shrieve
P: 1994

Progressing with guitarist Carlos Santana from his early Afro-Cuban rock and pop-based successes to his experimentation with jazz fusion, drummer Michael Shrieve subsequently released a string of fine solo recordings of his own. This one features guitar hero Bill Frisell and the ever-inventive organist Wayne Horvitz for a rather divergent set featuring ethereal soundscapes, loose grooves, and crunching opuses. Here, Shrieve provides sturdy backbeats to coincide with some nicely placed fills and his acute implementations of the dynamic. This effort highlights Frisell's wily and rather slithery guitar work, enhanced by the glowing sonic characteristics of the production, when viewed upon as a whole. The band is apt to soar skyward via climactic overtures in concert with a crash-and-burn methodology. Needless to say, this affair represents a potent concoction of jazz fusion melded with folksy themes and an avant-garde-type swing vamp, evidenced on "The Glass Tent." Yet, after a string of enterprising solo outings, Shrieve's solo career quieted down to a near whisper during the late '90s and into the new millennium.
