Major Impacts

Major Impacts
(Magna Carta - 2000)

Six-string virtuoso Steve Morse created with Major Impacts an extra-ordinary piece of music. The CD has a very interesting concept, coz Morse wanted to create a monument to honor the musicians who influenced him most. He didn't do it like others who did a tribute album or simply recorded cover versions, he wanted to honor his idols by writing songs in their style. Compose songs the way they did which is an unusual idea which turns out just great. He got support on the four-strings by Dave LaRue and by Van Romaine on drums. Morse recorded 11 tracks with them and the songs show a large variety. Most songs you can class easily while listening. You can hear who should be honored with the certain songs and so the concept turned out successfully.
Steve Morse give credit to his heroes and add his own personality to the compositions. The spectrum of honorable are: from Eric Clapton to Jimi Hendrix, from Jeff Beck to Jimmy Page and from Keith Richards to George Harrison. Well done!
