Derek Sherinian's profile has been raised considerably since joining the supergroup Black Country Communion and this release is by no means a chance to cash in on his name. In fact this is Sherinian's seventh solo release since the turn of the last decade.

Now you would think that a solo instrumental album from a keyboardist and titled 'Oceana' would feature tranquil music best listened to whilst staring at the fish tank. You couldn't be further from the truth as once again Sherinain has enlisted the help of many friends who know a thing or two about the six string.

Playing to new depths are BCC band mate Joe Bonamassa who turns up more often these days on other people's albums than what Brian May does at encores, Toto's Steve Lukather, Tony MacAlpine, Whitesnake's Doug Aldrich and Billy Idol's right hand gun Steve Stevens.

'Oceana' was co-produced by drummer extraordinaire Simon Phillips, who also played a major role in the writing department, and the two have collaborated on an album full of jazz rock inspirations that would please many Jeff Beck or Gary Moore era Colosseum II fans. Each guitarist has added their own unique style that will please hardcore fans.

Best listened to alone whilst the wife is out on a shopping trip. Which reminds me, I better feed the fish...
